1. Design Debut of the Year: Jamie Mizrahi for Juicy Couture, presented by Nicole Richie
“Last year, I came to this awards show when Karla Welch and Samantha McMillan won awards for the Stylists of the Year,” Jamie Mizrahi said when collecting her award. “I remember thinking to myself, how amazing would that be, to receive that honour. But as you can see, there’s a long line of accomplished stylists who deserve to be recognized, which is why I found another way of getting here.”
2. Hair Artist of the Year: Jen Atkin, presented by Kris Jenner
“This is such a pinch-me moment,” Jen Atkin said in her speech. “The fact that I’m getting a Daily Front Row award is insane. When my agent told me, I was getting an award, I was hoping it was Model of the Year!”
3. Photographer of the Year: Alexi Lubomirski, presented by Kyle Hagler.
4. Women’s Stylist of the Year: Kate Young, presented by Derek Blasberg

5. Emerging Talent of the Year: Cami Morrone, presented by Sebastian Faena

8. Model of the Year: Emily Ratajkowski, presented by Trey Laird
“Beauty as defined by the fashion industry is no longer just one ideal,” Ratajkowski said from the stage. ”It’s a multitude of shapes and colours and sizes. And, most amazingly, beauty is now about what makes you different and about what you stand for.”
