The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) held its annual awards event — often called the Oscars of the fashion world — on Monday night in New York City, where Jennifer Lopez was awarded with the prestigious Fashion Icon Award.
J.Lo walked the red carpet wearing a vibrant coral ensemble by Ralph Lauren Collection, a designer who she noted in her speech also hails from The Bronx. Her look included an embellished turtleneck crop top and a matching skirt with an oversized train. Harry Winston jewellery — as well as her massive stunner of an engagement ring from fiancé Alex Rodriguez — completed her look.
Also honoured at the festivities was none other than Barbie, a fashion icon in her own right. The ubiquitous Mattel doll received the CFDA’s Board of Directors’ Tribute Award for her influence on fashion throughout the last six decades.
