Having collected five Grammy awards for her singing, Lady Gaga is in for recognition in another walk of life – RadarOnline reports that the stage superstar is to become an officially recognized fashion icon.
The decision comes from the New York Council of Fashion Designers of America (CDFA) who gave out this week that the Born This Way artist will be granted the prestigious Fashion Icon Award at their Fashion Awards event this year.
The CFDA Fashion Awards annual was established to honor present-day fashion trailblazers. The 2011 celebration is set for June 6 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. CFDA’s previous award recipients team (to include Gaga soon!) comprises Kate Moss, Iman, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman.
Other Hollywood stars are expected to appear as nominates at the style awards show. The Swarovski Award promises a fierce competition where child stars (who are also prominent fashion figures) Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen will stand for their own against designers Joseph Altuzarra and Prabal Gurung. The twin sisters are regarded as the women’s wear category rising stars.
