Another year, another crop of star designers up for CFDA Awards.

This year’s ceremony—hosted by Anderson Cooper!—is quickly approaching, and in anticipation of the big event, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has released a selection of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin-shot portraits from the CFDA journal.

The images of the nominees—which include a corseted and pigtailed Lady Gaga, a mirror-image-esque shot of Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, a shirtless snap of Marc Jacobs, and a pensive Alexander Wang—will run in a program given to guests at the June 6 event.
