CFDA Deems RiRi Bona Fide Fashion Icon-------
News broke this morning that the CFDA’s 2014 fashion icon award will be going to none other than the sartorial chameleon who is Rihanna. As we’re sure you’ll remember, RiRi shook up the Paris fashion week scene in a kaleidoscope of ensembles—from a prim-and-proper look by Lanvin to a see-through body stocking to a bold Prada fur coat to a mash-up of wares by up-and-coming designers Melitta Baumeister, Hyein Seo, and Adam Selman. Indeed, some credit must be given to Rihanna’s stylist, Mel Ottenberg, who has expertly curated her wardrobe for high impact both on the stage and the street. Rihanna joins the ranks of previous winners such as Kate Moss, Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga, and Iman, and will be honored alongside the likes of Raf Simons and Tom Ford at the CFDA Awards on June 2.
