Over the years she’s made a significant impact on the fashion industry, and Carolina Herrera received her due recognition at the Couture Council Awards on Wednesday (September 3).

Set up to benefit the Fashion Institute of Technology, Ms. Herrera’s party had a guest list that included Anna Wintour, Oscar de la Renta, Renee Zellweger, Hilaria Thomas, Ivanka Trump and Seth Meyers.

Speaking of the “Late Night” host, Meyers sang Carolina’s praises while addressing the distinguished crowd, telling them that Ms. Herrera may have saved his wedding to Alexi Ashe back in 2013.

Seth explained that his bride had food poisoning the morning of the big day, and Carolina’s dress helped brighten the situation. “I was terrified because she didn’t look good . . . You can imagine my incredible relief that as she walked out in a Herrera wedding dress, she looked more beautiful than I had ever seen her look. I truly believe that Herrera dress was transformative not only in the way it made her look, but the way it made her feel . . . I am not saying this dress saved our wedding, but we are naming our first child Carolina — girl or boy.”
