Tom Ford, Donatella Versace, Zuhair Murad – these are just some of the designers who contributed to Jennifer Lopez’s iconic status on the red carpet. Now, the CFDA is thrilled to reveal that the actress, singer, dancer, and producer is this year’s recipient of the Fashion Icon award at the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards this June.
The CFDA Board of Directors is giving Lopez this award for her longstanding and global impact on fashion.
“Jennifer Lopez uses clothes as a way to express confidence and power,” CFDA Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg said. “Both designers and fans look forward to her fashion statements.”
Lopez showcases her unique style not just on the red carpet, but also on stage and in her everyday life. Of course, there’s the iconic Versace tropical leaf silk chiffon dress that was such a cultural moment it has its own Wikipedia page. Another powerful look: the stunning mirror mosaic Tom Ford dress she wore to the Oscars this year.
“Jennifer Lopez’s style is bold, uninhibited, and always memorable,” said Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA. “Designers, including many of our CFDA Members, love to dress her for both stage and private moments.”
