Rihanna to be awarded with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award

Pop Star Rihanna has become quite synonymous with the word "icon" last year she was awarded with the first ever Icon Award at the American Music Awards. Again this year she will be receiving a similar award for her undeniable impact in the fashion industry. “We are proud to present Rihanna with the CFDA(Council of Fashion Designers of America) Fashion Icon Award for her impact on the industry as fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory,”CFDA CEO Steven Kolb said in the announcement. 

Rihanna joins the likes of Lady Gaga, Kate Moss and Iman as the recipient of the CFDA Fashion Icon Award. In the past few years Rihanna has been able to change her style effortlessly like no one else in the world. Her impact on the fashion industry has been apparent for some time now, she has collaborated with high end fashion houses like Chanel for an ad campaign, Armani for a collection, River Island for two limited edition collections and most recently she is currently the face of the French fashion house Balmain. At this year's Paris Fashion Week she served up a storm of fashion with her risque and rather daring outfits from bra-less sheer tops to lingerie inspired looks during daytime she has proven that she can wear anything from street wear to haute couture and still look fierce.

  1. I could not think of anyone who deserves this more right now. Rihanna is the most definitive expression of contemporary times right now. She's doing what Madonna did in the eighties but even better because she's a strong, independent black woman!
