Seth Meyers is at all times in vogue.
The 2017 CFDA Vogue Awards, in partnership with Swarovski for the sixteenth yr, will happen at The Manhattan Heart’s Hammerstein Ballroom in New York Metropolis June 5. Meyers beforehand hosted the award ceremony in June 2012. “I’m so blissful that Seth agreed to be our host,” designer Diane Von Furstenberg, chairwoman of the CFDA, stated in an announcement Tuesday. Meyers’ “attraction, wit and intelligence will improve a night that we plan to be very festive.”
This yr’s companions are Lexus, Lifewtr and Maestro Dobel Tequila. Since Meyers’ final time internet hosting, Andy Cohen, James Corden, Joel McHale and John Waters have emceed the occasion.
Meyers’ 2012 look was a memorable one, due partly to his tribute to Marc Jacobs. Through the ceremony, the Late Evening modified out of his black tuxedo and right into a bedazzled, lacy look that Jacobs had worn on the purple carpet one month earlier. “It was fully see-through; I had boxers. You’ll be able to’t inform, however my sneakers had buckles on them,” Meyers advised Conan O’Brien two weeks after the ceremony. The concept truly got here from Vogue‘s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. “She stated to me, ‘I’ve the funniest thought,'” he stated. “And I had this second of, ‘Oh, do you, Anna Wintour, have the funniest thought?’ And she or he was like, ‘Yeah. You must put on Marc Jacobs’ Met outfit.’ I used to be like, ‘Aw—that is a fairly humorous thought.’ You had been proper, Anna Wintour!”
After placing the outfit on, Meyers recalled considering, “That is the nicest factor I’ve ever worn.”
“If in some other section of my life it was cool to put on this outfit,” Meyers stated, “I’d put on this all over the place. I’d do it doing Weekend Replace. It was so snug. It was so breezy.”
To keep away from a wardrobe malfunction, the Emmy winner stated, “I did put on two pairs of underpants.”
