CFDA To Honor Pharrell Williams With Fashion Icon Award

The infamous hat and Chanel bellboy suit paid off for Pharrell who snagged the 2015 CFDA Fashion Icon Award. This win should come of no surprise to the producer who has been taking fashionable risks and catching our eye since forever.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America is thee authority for who’s who in North American fashion, but the Virginia native’s look and influence spans worldwide.

“If cool was a person, it would be Pharrell, not just for his looks and sense of style but for his kindness,” said Diane von Furstenberg, fashion designer and president of the CFDA. “I cannot imagine anyone not seduced by him.”

The last winner of the accolade was Rihanna who turned heads and snatched wigs with her see-through sequined dress and matching du-rag at the 2014 CFDA Awards presentation.

We’ll have to patiently wait to see what get-up Skateboard P steps out in for the ceremony (hosted by CFDA in partnership with Swarovski), being held June 1st at Lincoln Center’s Alice Trully Hall. – Cook T.P.
