On Monday, June 4, Kim Kardashian won the Influencer Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). The reality TV star revealed she did not expect this honor, since she is ‘naked most of the time’.
37-year-old Kim walked towards the stage to collect her award. She then picked up the mic and wittily joked to the audience, “I’m kind of shocked that I’m winning a fashion award because I’m naked most of the time.”
She then continued in a serious manner. She said, “But this is seriously such an honor so thank you to the CFDA for this award.”
She also took to her Twitter to express her thoughts.
She then shared a short incident from her life with the crowd; “I mean, it was maybe seven years ago when I had a publicist and she asked what were my goals, what were my dreams, and I said I just want to be on the cover of a fashion magazine, and she said to me, ‘Let’s get some realistic goals ‘cause that’ll never happen.'”
She continued, “And so of course I sent her my Vogue cover when it came out, an autographed copy, but so it’s really a trip to me that now I’m up here getting an award for fashion when it’s something that I’ve always loved so thank you so much for this. It means a lot.”
The reality star wore a white two-piece suit, revealing her prominent abs. She accessorized herself with ancient styled golden bangles and rings. She topped it off with a tight high-pony, with the back of her hair curled in waves.
The Kardashian sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, also attended the ceremony.
Other notable stars present were Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cate Blanchett, Lupita Nyong’o, Claire Danes, Noami Campbell and Karlie Kloss.
Gigi Hadid rocked the CFDA ceremony with her unique choice of clothes. She boasted her figure in an extremely painted-on-her-skin tight multi-colored catsuit by Versace. Her overall look resembled an abstract painting. She paired her suit with blatant red four inch heels.
Naomi Campbell appeared on stage for her CFDA Fashion Icon Award. She stunned the audience with her red beaded and shimmery dress designed by Calvin Klein, and accessorized herself with elegant silver jewelry from Tiffany and Co.
