FASHION NEWS: Rihanna to receive the CFDA Fashion Icon Award and why Lupita Nyong'o finally made it.
Let’s face it; Rihanna has been responsible for almost all the trends that hit street fashion. So there is no surprise that she will receive the Fashion Icon Award at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards. That is Council of Fashion Designers of America if you didn’t know. Anyways, she will be honored on June 2.
Some of the past recipients include Kate Moss, Iman, Lady Gaga and Nicole Kidman. Not a bad group to be in company with. She is a fashion icon indeed. Although sometimes she wears questionable looks but that is why she is an icon, she is not afraid to take risks.
In order to say that you have made it, you need to have graced a couple of magazine covers, won an Oscar but you have not made it until your name has been mentioned in a rap song. I guess my girl Lupita has FINALLY made it. She got a shout out in Jay Z’s latest track We Made It which he collaborated with Jay Electronica.
“I’m on my Lupita Nyong’o. Stuntin’ on stage after 12 Years a Slave. This Ace of Spades look like an Oscar”
She has made it. But I still need that selfie with David Beckham. Have you heard the song yet?
