That Rihanna reign just won’t seem to let up…any time soon at least! The multi-million dollar music and fashion powerhouse will be honored with the Fashion Icon Award at the 2014 Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards on June 2nd at the Lincoln Center.
“We are proud to present Rihanna with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award for her impact on the industry as fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory” CFDA CEO, Steven Kolb stated in the huge announcement. Along with @Badgalriri’s music, acting, and fashion designer credentials, she will be recognized and honored for her contributions to the fashion industry as well as her philanthropic partnership with the MAC AIDS Fund’s Viva Glam campaign.
The Fashion Icon Award is given to an individual whose style has made a significant impact on popular culture on an international stage. With Rihanna’s timeless and evolving fashion style, CFDA could not have chosen a better candidate for the award other than Ms. Fenty. Whether “She” is in a sheer Balmain Top or an elegant Stella McCartney piece, Rihanna certainly knows how to work fashion from all angles and turn it into her very own muse.
Most importantly what and who will Rih Rih be wearing to the CFDA awards? Either way I’m more than sure she will look stunning as usual. Rihanna joins the ranks of past CFDA winners such as Lady Gaga, Iman, Kate Moss, and Nicole Kidman.
