Joel McHale hosted last night’s Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. It marked the first year that the annual show was produced by Harvey Weinstein and the Weinstein Company, and the ceremony featured film and TV names from Harvey’s world including Jennifer Hudson — who performed a Prince tribute — Jessica Chastain, Ana de Armas, Lena Dunham, Julianne Hough, Olivia Wilde, Kirsten Dunst, Tilda Swinton and more. Claire Danes, Alexander Skarsgard, Ansel Elgort, and Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson were among the presenters. TWC plans to shop the event for TV next year to scratch a midyear itch for a red-carpet event.
