Anna Wintour to present Rihanna with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award
The upcoming CFDA Fashion Awards just got even more star power. Us Weekly can exclusively announce that Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard will both present at the event.
Wintour, 64, has signed on to bestow the Icon award to Rihanna at the swanky affair, which is taking place on Monday, June 2, at New York City’s Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center.
“We are proud to present Rihanna with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award for her impact on the industry as fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory,” CFDA CEO Steven Kolb said in a release. The “Pour It Up” singer, 26, is being recognized for her boundary-pushing style, as well as her philanthropic efforts with MAC cosmetics.
Rihanna’s recognition comes after the award was presented to stars including Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga, and Kate Moss in the past.
Cotillard, 38, will lend her hand to the Fashion Awards by presenting the International Award to Christian Dior Artistic Director Raf Simons. The actress will be joined by Christian Dior chief executive Sidney Toledano to honor Simons.
Other stars involved in the event include Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, and James Marsden.
