Last night we joined the who’s who in fashion social media for the Style Coalition’s Fourth Annual Fashion 2.0 Awards, known in the industry as “The Digital Oscars”. Held at the SVA Theater in New York the event drew a chic mix of social media influencers, tech tycoons, bloggers, and socialites.

The event was emceed by hilarious fashion personality Robert Verdi who made us LOL throughout the show. The keynote was presented by Barneys New York Creative Ambassador at Large, Simon Doonan who spoke of the “Miracle of Social Media”, touching on the many gifts the phenomenon has given us, including “intellectual and philosophical musings from the great thinkers of our day, like Kim Kardashian.”
