When funny girl Tracey Ullman received this message from Diane von Furstenberg, "Hello, it's D.V.F. You have no excuse this year, Tracey. Call me back," she knew she would be hosting the CFDA Awards in June. You may not know this, but Ullman is a huge fashion lover; combine that with her comedy and it's no wonder von Furstenberg chose her. As for entertaining the CFDA crowd, Ullman said she's tempted to prod designers on how they feel about invented celebrities — touché. "You can imagine," said Ullman, "Oscar de la Renta being shown a picture of Lauren Conrad, and saying, 'Oh, if only we can get her to hold our purse!'"
