The GQ creative director will be presented with the CFDA's Eleanor Lambert Award at the council's annual awards night on June 15, and Barneys New York has just unveiled windows designed in his honor. The windows highlight some of Moore's most memorable work at the magazine, from covers to photos shoots, and features praise from the likes of Tom Ford, Miuccia Prada, Giorgio Armani, and GQ editor in chief Jim Nelson. "Whenever you hear someone say 'That guy is so GQ,' Jim Moore ought to get a residual check. He's the man who made GQ so GQ," says Nelson's window quote. In addition, the retailer is throwing a party in Moore's honor on June 11 on the men's designer floor, to celebrate the man...and his window display. (The Daily)
