CDG Awards choose “Sex and the City” actress to host, announce honors for Berry, Joel Schumacher and others
Kristin Davis will host and Halle Berry will be honored at the 13th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards, the CDG announced on Tuesday.
Davis, the star of the widely-reviled but definitely clothes-centric "Sex and the City 2," will serve as emcee for the gala event, which takes place on Tuesday, February 22 at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills.
Berry, whose most recent film is "Frankie & Alice," will be presented with a new award, the Lacoste Spotlight Award, designed to honor "an actor whose talent and career personifies an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design."
Other honorees will include director Joel Schumacher, who got his start as a costume designer and will receive the Distinguished Collaborator Award; costume designer Julie Weiss, a CDG winner for "American Beauty" and "Blades of Glory," with the Disaronno Career Achievement in Film and Television Award; and the late Michael Dennison, who will be inducted posthumously into the guild's Hall of Fame.
Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore and Robert Duvall will participate in the award to Weiss.
Nominations in the competitive CDG Awards categories will be announced on January 20.
