Kim Kardashian Receives CFDA Award; Advocates For Diversity And Acceptance!

Kim Kardashian Honored at CFDA Awards

Kim Kardashian, who was recognized for her shapewear line at Monday’s Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards in New York City, used the opportunity to urge the industry to embrace women of varying sizes.

Amazon Fashion gave Kardashian their inaugural Innovation Award for her shapewear line SKIMS. Emma Grede, Chief Product Officer, and Jens Grede, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, were also honored alongside Kardashian with the first-ever award.

Natasha Lyonne, Joseph Altuzarra, Gabriela Hearst, Aurora James, Lazaro Hernandez, and Jack McCollough hosted Monday night’s live Fashion Awards, the industry’s version of the Academy Awards. The evening celebrated 60 years of the fashion organization and the heritage of American style.

Kardashian told the celebrity-studded crowd, which included Khloe and Kendall and their mother Kris Jenner, that the company has placed a “strong emphasis” since its launch on “continuing to shape the industry to embrace size equality and diversity as a fixture and not just a trend,” and she saw that many in the audience were doing just that.

The award was given to Kardashian by Martha Stewart, who had to make an abrupt announcement because her phone had just rung. With the help of the audience, Kardashian told Jenner “mom, turn your phone off,” which was met with laughter.

Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall, Kylie Jenner, and Khloé’s sister, Kylie, were all present to see their sister accept her award.

Law Roach was presented with a brand new award this year that specifically recognizes the achievements of stylists.

A queen was born on the South Side of Chicago once upon a time. Kerry Washington retold Roach’s origin story, describing her as “a queen who was a fear force for good and for beauty, and she changed the landscape of fashion just by being her.”

In 2016, he was working as Zendaya’s stylist and was able to watch the CFDA Awards from the comfort of the backstage.

Roach: “I watched from the kitchen as the waiters served your food, and I just thought, ‘One day I’m going to be on that stage.’ I am an example that anything and everything is possible.”


Lenny Kravitz was awarded the CFDA’s Fashion Icon Award, and the evening featured a number of presenters including Bradley Cooper, Trevor Noah, and Christina Ricci.

Cooper said of Kravitz, “(Kravitz is) effortless, cool, eclectic, fearless.” He has it, whatever it is. The coolest person ever when it comes to clothing. Nobody else in the music industry today can pull off leather and leopard print quite like Lenny.

Kravitz, who grew up in the late 1960s and early 1970s, has said, “My mother’s closet was my own personal boutique.” He would dress up like his musical heroes, such as the Jackson Five, Jimi Hendrix, Sly, and the Family Stone, David Bowie, and Miles Davis, by donning accessories such as scarves, belts, platform boots, and boas from his mother’s closet.

Before Zendaya, previous Icon award winners included the likes of Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez.

To present Patti Wilson with an award, surprise guest Cher said, “Fashion is to be fun and feared, and Patti Wilson is fearless.”

Raul Lopez won the award for accessories design, and Elena Velez won the award for the emerging designer in the United States.

Catherine Holstein of KHAITE won the award for womenswear, and Emily Adams Bode Aujla of A/X won the award for menswear, both for their work as American designers.

Shannon Abloh, Virgil’s wife, accepted the Board of Trustee’s Award on his behalf and said, “what he was able to accomplish in his short 41 years will live on to inspire all of us for decades to come.”

Kim K. Was A CFDA Fashion Awards Honoree This Year

On Monday night, the Council of Fashion Designers of America presented its annual fashion awards.

This first-ever Influencer Award was presented to the 37-year-old TV personality and beauty mogul at a ceremony held at the Brooklyn Museum in New York.

Wearing a white Rick Owens crop top and long skirt, Kardashian joked about herself during her acceptance speech.

“I am kind of shocked that I am winning a fashion award when I am naked most of the time,” the star joked. But seriously, thank you CFDA for this award; it’s quite an honor.

Kourtney and Kendall Kardashian, Kardashian’s sisters, were also present. According to People, Kardashian was taken by surprise when her husband Kanye West appeared in a video message alongside their two-year-old son Saint.

“The world’s most powerful person is the intended audience for this video. Are you hoping to make contact?” In the clip, the rapper and fashion designer asked Saint.


Kardashian said that West and her mother Kris Jenner were responsible for a lot of her fashion choices.

The celebrity stated, “My husband is a huge fashion inspiration of mine.” “If you want to call what he does a “makeover” for me, that’s what he does. The man is my go-to stylist.”

The choice I make is definitely influenced by my mom,” she continued.

Saint, North, 4, and Chicago, who is 4 months old, are Kardashian and West’s children. Penelope Disick, North and Kourtney’s daughter, celebrated her birthday on Sunday with a party centered around unicorns hosted by her famous parents.


“She’s the most famous woman in the world,” Wilmot declared of her. The Council of Fashion Designers of America is acknowledging her significance without criticizing her taste. They can’t even compare her to Beyoncé in terms of fame. “Even more well-known than Rihanna.” (In recent years, the CFDA has honored both of these ladies with Icon Awards.)
