Singer, businesswoman and fashion icon, Jennifer Lopez will receive an accolade for her bold, fashion style at the CFDA awards in June 2019
2019 started off on a high with the global icon who has been successfully killing it in showbiz for decades and recently been engaged to her fiance, Alex Rodriguez. Growing up watching her gracefully slay the music stage, box office and those red carpet moments, JLO is by far one of my favourite entertainers, so I couldn’t help but being excited when I saw that she’ll add to her collection another award for her fashion prowess. The Council of Fashion Designers of America broke the news on Instagram, revealing J.Lo as the recipient of the award. She will join in the likes of Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Pharrell in collecting this award.
“The CFDA is thrilled to reveal Jennifer Lopez is this year’s recipient of the Fashion Icon award at the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards this June. The CFDA Board of Directors is giving the actress, singer, dancer, and producer this award for her longstanding and global impact on fashion. “Jennifer Lopez uses clothes as a way to express confidence and power,” CFDA Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg said. “Both designers and fans look forward to her fashion statements.” “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.”
It further stated, “‘Our 2019 Fashion Icon recipient Jennifer Lopez showcases her unique style on the red carpet, but also on stage and in her everyday life. From the iconic Versace tropical leaf silk chiffon dress to her stunning mirror mosaic Tom Ford dress she wore to the Oscars this year, she is undoubtedly a fashion force.
