Bajan Beauty Makes Bon Ton
This year on June 2, superstar singer Rihanna will receive The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc.’s prestigious CFDA Fashion Icon Award, which is given to one whose style has made a tremendous impact on pop culture around the world.
The face of Balmain’s spring 2014 campaign, Rihanna has established herself as a permanent fixture in the world of high-fashion. Always stunning and super-chic, she appears flawless in pretty much anything. From urban fashion to being red carpet ready, Rihanna certainly knows how to wow and has already etched a special place in the hearts of many famous designers as a fashion icon, even at the tender age of 26.
According to an interview with Seventeen Magazine, Rihanna’s sense of style comes naturally, “Well, I love playing with fashion. I’m very spontaneous – the best outfits from me come from not thinking about it.”
This type of effortless style makes it no wonder why the CFDA chose to honor Rihanna as its 2014 recipient of the prestigious award. “Big up” to Rihanna for her latest fashion feat.
