He’s never one to miss out on a high-profile party, and last night Kanye West was spotted at the 14th Annual ACE Awards in New York City.
The “Love Lockdown” rapper smiled for the cameras as he arrived at Cipriani 42nd Street sporting a black suit.
And Kanye wasn’t just a spectator at the event. He was named 2010’s Stylemaker of the Year, an honor he received for his “style and influence on fashion”. After accepting the honor, West gave a gracious speech in which he told the audience: “Thank you for this moment of acceptance.”
The Stylemaker honor is likely to be just one of many Kanye West will be in the running for this year, as his new album, My Dark & Twisted Fantasy, comes out November 22nd.
Also being honored at last night’s ACE event was tennis champ Maria Sharapova, who along with Dave McTague received the Brand Collaboration Award.
The beautiful tennis babe also hit up a screening of “Due Date” hosted by The Cinema Society & DKNY Jeans at LAVO.
The “Due Date” event proved to be a popular attraction in NYC last night, as Courtney Love and Russell Simmons were just a few of the stars spotted mingling at the screening.
The new movie, starring Robert Downey Jr., is a comedy in which a high strung father-to-be is forced to hitch a ride with an aspiring actor on a road trip so that he can make it to his child’s birth on time.
