On June 2, Rihanna’s influential style will be solidified at the CFDA Fashion Awards, where she will be honored with the “Icon Award.” The Council of Fashion Designers of America have labeled the provocateur “fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory” for her ever evolving looks. Like her predecessors Iman, Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman and Kate Moss, she’s covered countless glossies and set off seasonal trends. However, the question still remains–is she truly an “icon?”
We’ve employed Bravo’s Fashion Queens (above)–Bevy Smith, Derek J and Miss Lawrence–to answer this question and reflect on Rih Rih’s journey from Barbadian pop princess to Good Girl Gone Bad.
See what these industry pros have to say on the next page and be sure to tune into Fashion Queens every Sunday night at 11:30pm EST!
