We’re delighted to hear the news that Naomi Campbell will be receiving the highly coveted CFDA Fashion Icon Award later this year.
Naomi Campbell has broken so many records during her time as a world-class supermodel – including being the first ever black model on the cover of Vogue Paris, and the first ever black model to open Prada’s fashion show – so it was only a matter of time!
“It is truly an honor to be recognized by the CFDA with this year’s Fashion Icon Award,” Naomi Campbell said.
“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.”
And Naomi Campbell is in pretty good company, as past recipients of this award have included Beyoncé, David Bowie, Rihanna, Kate Moss, Iman and Lady Gaga.
The awards ceremony will take place on June 4 at the Brooklyn Museum in New York.
Congratulations Naomi Campbell!
