With the CFDA awards right around the corner, the tension is mounting. Who will win? Who will lose? What will they wear? The answers to all these questions will be revealed Monday night, but in the meantime the annual nominees portfolio only adds to the excitement. Shot by Solve Sundsbo and styled by Lori Goldstein, the images feature designers posing alongside models who represent the look of their brand; Jason Wu stands in awe of the statuesque Karlie Kloss, wearing one of his elegant fall creations, while Prabal Gurung lounges with Heidi Mount. Marc Jacobs may have missed the photoshoot but with a team of models led by Jacquelyn Jablonski andÂ Paul Boche, wearing masks of the designer’s face you hardly notice his absence, Trey Laird‘s inventive creative direction, really makes these images shine.
