Naomi Campbell To Receive Fashion Icon Award At The CFDA Awards
Thank god it’s Friday and thank god Naomi Campbell is the recipient of this year’s CFDA Fashion Icon Award. It really couldn’t be anyone else. She practically defines the word and is undoubtedly one of the reigning queens of the industry (or so we have declared her). Previous honourees include Kate Moss, Rihanna, Beyoncé, David Bowie, Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams and Iman. In good company then. “It is truly an honour to be recognised by the CFDA with this year’s Fashion Icon Award,” said Campbell. “Being from London, my personal style has always been tremendously influenced by both the dynamic, ever-changing nature of street culture and the music scene. I grew up in this industry and I’m forever grateful to the iconic American fashion designers who have supported me and celebrated me throughout my career.” All hail Naomi. The ceremony is to be hosted by Issa Rae and will be held on June 4th at the Brooklyn Museum. We’re ready for Miss Campbell in all her sass to take the stage and inspire us forevermore.
