Rihanna will be honored with this year’s Fashion Icon Award at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards.
She’s being recognized for her contributions to the fashion industry as well as her philanthropic partnership with the MAC AIDS Fund’s Viva Glam campaign.
“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”, said Steven Kolb, CEO of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, in a statement.
Past Fashion Icon Award recipients include Lady Gaga, Iman, Kate Moss and Nicole Kidman.
We can’t think of a more deserving recipient. The ceremony will take place June 2nd in NYC.
