PRESENTING DUTIES: The names of the presenters at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3 are starting to trickle in. Kerry Washington will be at Alice Tully Hall to present this year’s Womenswear Designer of the Year award. Ralph Lauren will be on hand to give the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award to Vera Wang, who once worked for him, and Jessica Chastain will do the honors for Riccardo Tisci, who is receiving the night’s International Award. Linda Evangelista will give the Media Award in Honor of Eugenia Sheppard to Tim Blanks (both hail from Canada). Andy Cohen will serve as the evening’s host. The presenter of the Founder’s Award in Honor of Eleanor Lambert to Oscar de la Renta is still a bit of a mystery, but none other than his friend — and former Secretary of State — Hillary Rodham Clinton is said to be on the short list of candidates.
