Fashion designers and celebrities alike were in the limelight Tuesday night at the Fragrance Foundation’s 36th annual FiFi Awards ceremony, which was held at Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory.

On a night when Coty Inc. stood out with five awards, the roster of presenters seemed equally formidable. The lineup was to include Zac Posen, Salt-N-Pepa, Danity Kane, Alyson Hannigan, Cynthia Rowley and Bernadette Peters. Vera Wang, who has launched a number of fragrances with Coty, received the foundation’s Hall of Fame award.

While Coty was the night’s big winner, FiFi statuettes also went home with Procter & Gamble Co., the Giorgio Armani Beauty division of L’Oréal USA, Avon Products Inc., Puig Beauty & Fashion Group, the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., Hermès and Chanel. Here is the complete list of winners:
