Following in the footsteps of Naomi Campbell, Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez will receive the Fashion Icon Honour at the CFDA Awards this June.
“Jennifer Lopez uses clothes as a way to express confidence and power… both designers and fans look forward to her fashion statements,” commented CFDA chairwoman, Diana von Furstenberg.
J-Lo has certainly set a name for herself as a stylish risk-taker when it comes to fashion – from the plunging green Versace number she wore at the 2000 Grammys, to the numerous glitter bodysuits she struts on tour stages, she has kept the fashion press talking for decades.
“Jennifer Lopez’s style is bold, uninhibited, and always memorable,” said Steven Kolb, president and CEO of the CFDA. “Designers, including many of our CFDA members, love to dress her for both stage and private moments.”
Recently, Lopez has turned heads in the mirrored Tom Ford evening gown she wore to the 2019 Academy Awards (fittingly, Ford is the new chairman of the CFDA), the shocking pink Giambattista Valli haute couture gown that some say took centre stage at the premiere of Second Act, and who can forget last summer’s Versace denim boots?
Already prepping for her summer wedding to Alex Rodriguez – set to be an incredibly stylish affair – and gearing up for her North America tour, this is a very busy year for the pop star. Adding icon status to the mix only seems fitting. Lopez is expected to attend the ceremony on June 3 at the Brooklyn Museum. Her outfit of choice is anyone’s guess, but we can be sure it’ll be iconic.
