TRACEY TAKES ON: Tracey Ullman has already lampooned Miuccia Prada and Donna Karan on her Showtime series “State of the Union.” Next month, she will get a chance to rib an entire room of fashion folks. Ullman will host the 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards, which will take place at Alice Tully Hall on June 15. The comedienne is a longtime friend of CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg.
Meanwhile, Scott Pask, who was just nominated for a Tony Award for “Pal Joey,” will create the set, which will feature a Swarovski crystal podium. The Austrian crystal maker is the evening’s sponsor for the eighth year. Other changes this year include the dinner. Where once the awards were marked by a lengthy seated dinner, this year’s affair will feature a light, passed supper. “We are looking forward to this change in venue and format which will allow us to have a fun party for the winners, nominees, honorees, and guests in the beautiful glass-enclosed atrium of Alice Tully Hall,” von Furstenberg said.
