On Friday night, an excited crowd gathered outside the Park Hyatt Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, impatiently waiting to catch a glimpse of the attendees of the Fashion Media Awards, Kendall Jenner, Kate Upton, Gigi Hadid, Coco Rocha, and more among them. Inside things were surprisingly chill: Joe Zee, the evening’s host, voiced his fear of falling on stage. “Though, I don’t know—it did work for Jen Lawrence,” he joked. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, who walked the red carpet with their son Charles and were receiving the fashion photography award, underscored the importance of the honor. “There finally is an award for photography,” said Matadin. “It’s a great affirmation of the creativity that goes into it,” van Lamsweerde added. The couple had recently photographed Joan Rivers for W magazine, the evening’s Magazine of the Year. “It was incredible to meet her and we feel blessed that we are the ones who had that experience with her,” said van Lamsweerde.
