The CFDA Awards is taking place in just a few weeks time and we are getting seriously excited, particularly by the news that Kim Kardashian will now be making an appearance. After last year when Rihanna showed up in that nude sequin dress, we can only imagine what amazing ensemble the reality queen will be slipping into.
One of the biggest nights of fashion will be taking place on June 1st in New York, where Ms Kardashian will be presenting the Media Award to the founder of Instagram, Kevin Systrom. As the queen of taking selfies who boasts an astonishing 33.3 million users on the app, Kim was the obvious choice for the awards.
And just how did she celebrate the news? With a selfie of course! Taking to Instagram, Kim posted this snap, captioned:
“Couldn’t be more excited to present the @CFDA Media Award to Instagram’s founder @Kevin Systrom on June 1st”
We have a feeling Kim’s going to show up in something spectacular and that her fashion designer hubby will also be making an appearance.
This news adds even more anticipation to the award show which will see Amanda Seyfried and Diane Kruger’s other half, Joshua Jackson, presenting to a star-studded set of nominees, including our personal faves, the Olsen twins.
They’ve been out of the spotlight for a while now, concentrating on their efforts as designers and mega-brand builders, and it seems like this has more than paid off for our favourite Nickelodeon twinset, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. The pair have been nominated for not one, but two awards! Yup, fashion’s brightest gathered at the Top of The Rock (that’s literally the top of the Rockefeller centre) in New York to celebrate the award nominees for this year’s ceremony, which will take place on 1st June. And, amongst the likes of Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, the Olsen twins were nominated for both Womenswear Designer of The Year and Accessories Designer of The Year, due to their work at The Row, the label they established together.
The only other brand to receive two nominations was Proenza Schouler, making this quite the coup for the designer sisters. Their fellow nominees for the Accessories award included Alexander Wang, Tabitha Simmons and Proenza’s Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernandez, while Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and Joseph Altuzarra all received nominations for Womenswear Designer of The Year.
Diane Von Furstenberg announced the list of nominees, while Mary-Kate and Ashley posed for group pics with their fellow designers. Mary-Kate chose an oversized coat and scarf, and Ashley rocked black tailoring for the event. Naturally, the pair both carried black handbags of their own design. Good work girls, we can’t wait to see who scoops the prizes come June. Haven’t they come a long way since Full House…?
