Before the Meghan Markle effect even existed, Jenny From the Block’s style was the one everyone wanted to emulate. She’s why you wanted to wear a Juicy Couture tracksuit (ahem, the “I’m Real” video) and who could forget J.Lo’s iconic green tropical print Versace dress from the 2000 MTV VMAs? The CFDA certainly hasn’t and will honor Lopez for her fashionable contributions, giving her the CFDA Fashion Icon Award at this year’s ceremony.
“Jennifer Lopez’s style is bold, uninhibited, and always memorable,” Steven Kolb, president and CEO of the CFDA says. “Designers, including many of our CFDA Members, love to dress her for both stage and private moments.” Adds CFDA chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg in a statement, “Jennifer Lopez uses clothes as a way to express confidence and power. Both designers and fans look forward to her fashion statements. ”
Past CFDA Fashion Icon Award recipients include Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, Pharrell, Beyonce, and the late Franca Sozzani. The CFDA Awards will take place at the Brooklyn Museum on June 3.
2019 has been off to a great start for JLo, who kicked off the year with a mesmerizing 10-minute Motown tribute at the 2019 Grammy Awards ceremony. She also wore this voluminous neon pink Giambattista Valli gown at the premiere of her movie Second Act.
Currently, the triple threat is filming a new movie titled Hustlers, starring alongside Cardi B, Constance Wu, and Lili Reinhart. Suffice to say, J. Lo’s kind of a killing it…and we aren’t even half way through the year.
