man whose own latest accessory is dyed blue hair, Marc Jacobs, took
home the "Designer of the Year" award at the 11th Annual ACE Awards in
New York on Nov. 5, one of many people honored by the Accessories
Council this year for their achievements in the world of accessories.

Jacobs, whose shoes and handbags for both his signature collection
and his younger Marc by Marc Jacobs brand are highly sought after
items, also designs accessories for one of the most recognizable luxury
brands in the world, Louis Vuitton, which he reinvents season after
season. His latest collection, shown on the runways in Paris in
October, featured a collaboration with artist Richard Prince.

Actress Mandy Moore was honored as "Fashion Innovator," while
supermodel and "Project Runway" producer Heidi Klum, who designed a
jewelry line of her own that she will wear in upcoming episodes,
received the "Fashion Influencer" award. Moore opted to wear a
form-fitting black satin shirt dress, while Klum wore a black and gold
brocade gown. Jessica Simpson, a presenter, wore a black and gold

Black dresses – perhaps better for highlighting one’s accessories –
turned out to be the prevailing statement of the evening, as fellow
honoree Tory Burch, whose new line garnered the "Accessory Brand
Launch" award, wore an elegant black halter gown. Presenter Helena
Christensen and Lucy Liu, who accepted Valentino’s lifetime achievement
award on his behalf, also looked stunning in tiered dresses – Liu’s,
from the Valentino couture collection, featured dramatic, full ruffles
and Christensen’s was Grecian column-meets-flapper.

The other award winners included Macy’s, Inc. (Retailer of the
Year), Harper’s Bazaar (Magazine of the Year), Scoop (Specialty
Retailer of the Year), Bridget Foley (Marylou Luther Award for Fashion
Journalism) and Nancy Gonzalez (Brand of the Year).
