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.

      Life is about LIVING FOR GOD OUR FATHER and DO WHAT HE SAID on HOW WE ALL NEED, MUST and WILLINGLY LIVE THROUGH HIS HOLY WORD, HIS ”SON JESUS CHRIST” WHO ”DIED FOR US”!!!!! because of our SINS, KNOWING WE WERE VERY ”DISCONNECTED” FROM THE FATHER, but doing so GIVING US ALL HOPE, That we all might be RECONNECTED with GOD and OBEY THE 1 TRUE GOSPEL having a CHANCE TO CHANGE OUR LIFE AND TURN COMPLETELY FROM SIN. The LORD JESUS said in JOHN 14:6 I’am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, but BY ME.

      Faithz ”Creating yourself” leads to much much much SIN, LIKE THE LUST OF THE FLESH, WORSHIPNG OF OTHER PEOPLE THAT WALK IN DARKNESS an NOT IN THE LIGHT, OVER LOOKING WHAT THE TRUTH IS OF GOD. I got a small feeling YOU KNOW THIS, but still DELIBERATELY, WILLINGLY, JUST DO NOT CARE and DOING WHAT YOU WANT TO DO in the sight of GOD.

    We all can say with pride and joy that Rihanna is fashion’s most exciting ambassador……and yes we all can say she is also known for her boundary-pushing style, and yes she has a tremendous impact on the industry, because she has others breaking their necks to stay current and relevant eventhough it is time for them to sit down and take a rest and be the mothers and wives that they are….. so I say, go ahead Rihanna, receive your CFDA Fashion Icon Award with pure pride and joy and ALL of your Navy fans will be right there with you in mind and in spirit. You deserve it. CONGRATULATIONS FROM YOUR NAVY!!!!

    I would say Rihanna is a Pop Idol, a Superstar and now as of Monday June 2nd 2014, she will officially be a Fashion Icon. There is no other that can carry those titles, only Rihanna can!
