From its beginning in 2000, NYWIFT’s Designing Women awards have honored women who have made some of the biggest stars look great through their hair, makeup, and costume design. Their work has been seen in award-winning TV shows and blockbuster films, such as Sex and the City, Law and Order, The Devil Wears Prada, Damages, Boardwalk Empire, Capote, Chocolat, and Mad Men.
The evening was hosted by Jeannie Park, executive editor of People, and the presenters included actress Gretchen Mol, director Tom DiCillo, and Julia Roberts. You can learn more about past NYWIFT Designing Women award ceremonies here.

Fox and Heather Locklear, Sex and the City, Law & Order: SVU, Friends from College, Red Oaks, Darren Star’s Younger, and the film Summertime. After many years of dedication, Rosemary received the NYWIFT Designing Women Award in 2011 for her contributions to the TV show Nurse Jackie and later earned the title of Head Costume Designer.
