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.
Designing Women 2006 was no exception. The honorees included makeup artist Nicki Ledermann, costume designer Ellen Lutter, and hair stylist Lyndell Quiyou.
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.
The 2013 Designing Women will be held at The McGraw Hill Building, 1221 Avenue of the Americas (entrance on 49th St.) on Thursday, May 23, at 7 pm. Doors open 6:30. Price for members is $75, nonmembers $150. Tickets and registration available here. A reception follows the awards event. Proceeds from ticket sales go to NYWIFT’s nonprofit educational programs. — MIMI SPILLANE
