Next Monday, this year's CFDA winners will be announced. Our votes are in, the heat is on. The journal to accompany this year's awards is the most evolved yet. Each nominee and honoree was snapped by lens star Sølve Sundsbø and styled by Lori Goldstein with the creative direction of Trey Laird, of Laird + Partners. "We liked the idea of pairing the designers with a reflection of their work and someone who represents their aesthetics," Laird explained. Alexander Wang opted to be photographed with six of his high school friends. Donna Karan was shot solo — Donna pure. As for Marc Jacobs, who missed out due to a scheduling conflict, his image was inspired by street casting for his Fall show: fur-clad models and black and white Marc faces make up an MJ menagerie.
