Washington: American singer-actor Jennifer Lopez, after remaining in the spotlight for more than two decades, has finally earned her place as a bona fide style icon. The 49-year-old star is being honoured by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) for her impact on fashion, reported People.
The CFDA recently announced that Lopez is all set to receive the prestigious Fashion Icon Award at the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City, later this year. From her bold and stunning red carpet fashion choices to her breathtakingly beautiful onstage looks, the ‘Second Act’ actor always pushes boundaries and takes chances with her fashion choices.
In addition to her red carpet looks, the singer has also graced the cover of almost every major fashion magazine worldwide, from Vogue to Harper’s BAZAAR to InStyle, throughout her career. “Jennifer Lopez’s style is bold, uninhibited and always memorable. Designers, including many of our CFDA Members, love to dress her for both stage and private moments,” said Steven Kolb, President, and CEO of the CFDA.
According to CFDA Chairwoman, Diane von Furstenberg, the actor chooses outfits that express confidence and power. “Jennifer Lopez uses clothes as a way to express confidence and power. Both designers and fans look forward to her fashion statements,” she said.
Lopez will join a list of previous recipients, including Beyoncé, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams and last year’s winner, Naomi Campbell. The 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards will be held on June 3 and will be hosted at the Brooklyn Museum, New York. “Jenny from the Block” has unapologetically flaunted her assets and been an inspiration when it comes to power dressing.
She carried sheer dresses with panache way back in 1998 even and who can forget her iconic silk Versace red carpet gown from 2000 Grammy Awards, with a plunging neckline the world had never witnessed before. JLo has always been a favourite when it comes to red carpet looks, with the biggest names like Marchesa, Balmain and many more always eager to dress her in their outfits.
