Last month, the Council of Fashion Designers of America announced that Rihanna will receive the Fashion Icon Award at the organization’s upcoming 2014 Fashion Awards, taking place later this summer. Now, the singer has reacted to the news.
“I’m truly honored,” Rihanna tweeted to her 34 million followers. “Thank you.” Over on her Instagram, she added the hashtags “#FromTheLeftSideOfAnIsland,” “#Blessings” and “#idothisfashionsh**forfun.”
The singer joins an impressive list of past winners, including Lady Gaga, Iman, Kate Moss and Nicole Kidman.
As previously reported, the ceremony will take place on June 2 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York and will live streamed via cfda.com.
