Her music captivates many, her style is examined, copied, recreated and envied. She is musical and fashion sensation, Rihanna.
Rihanna's progression of style has been followed for years now. She does double duty by expressing her emotions through both her award-winning music and her unique style.
On June 2, Rihanna will be honored by the Council of Fashion Designers of America with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award at the annual CFDA Fashion Awards taking place at the very chic Lincoln Center in the heart of New York City.
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," says CEO of the CFDA, Steven Kolb.
Not only does she emanate fashion with every breath that she takes, but she goes one step further with her philanthropic efforts. The talented artist has contributed greatly to the fashion industry as she has partnered with M*A*C in their worldwide "Viva Glam" AIDS fund campaign.
So what determines a fashion icon in the eyes of the CFDA? This is the individual whose style has made a tremendous impact on popular culture internationally.
As Rihanna walks to the stage to accept the coveted award, she will join the exclusive list which includes past winners: Lady Gaga, Iman, Kate Moss and Nicole Kidman.
