From successful businesses in Fashion and Beauty, to ruling the Reality TV world and most importantly commanding Social Media with their presence, its no wonder they are being awarded for it. You have to give it to them, they are unstoppable! This years CDFA will be awarding the Ultimate Kardashian with its Inaugural Influencer Award. Keep reading and find out more after the cut.
You guessed it right, Kim Kardashian the first of her name and the Queen of all things Reality, Beauty and Social Media will be awarded at the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Award, with the title of “Influencer”. Its one thing to be cheered on for being the biggest influencer on Instagram by your One Hundred and Eleven Million followers, but its a whole other thing to be collectively recognized as an influencer by the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Kim Kardashian has done very well for herself and will be adding another accolade to her collection, and making history come June 4th.
In describing why—as though it needs any explanation— Kim Kardashian West was chosen for the honor, the CFDA noted that Kardashian West is not only a woman with over 200 million followers across all her social channels, but also runs a number of fashion and beauty brands, including KKW Beauty, KKW Fragrance, Kids Supply, Kimoji, and her own site kimkardashianwest.com.
“Over the past decade, Kim Kardashian West has mastered the meaning of influence in the digital age,” CFDA Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg said in a press release. In addition to promoting her own brands, Kardashian West continues to work and promote brands across the fashion spectrum. One day she might be starring in a Calvin Klein Jeans campaign, the next she could we walking the Met Gala red carpet in vintage-inspired Versace.
Congratulations to Kim K for this prestigious Award and the recognition. She has truly mastered the act of being a true influencer in this digital age and she deserves all the accolades and more. The only question left on everyone’s mind right now, is what would she be wearing? I cant wait to see Kim come June 4th, so keep a date.
