Kim Kardashian-West showed off her body in a two piece white outfit as she received her first-ever CFDA fashion influencer award, accompanied on the red carpet by her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.
The annual fashion awards were hosted by actress and producer Issa Rae, and recipients for the evening included fashion icon award winner Naomi Campbell, International award winner Donatella Versace, media ward Edward Enninful, lifetime achievement recipient Narciso Rodriguez and founder's award Carolina Herrera.
Designer and member of the CFDA board Tommy Hilfiger, stated that he had suggested not only the award be added to the CFDA, but also that Kardashian-West be the first recipient of the award back in May. "Kim is the most important and powerful influencer in the world," the designer said in a statement. "Her reach extends far beyond her own brands. Every time she wears, posts, or talks about a fashion brand, there is an immediate and significant increase in both awareness and sales".
Upon receiving the award,
Kardashian-West joked about how shocked she was to learn that she would be receiving the awards, considering how she is is known for posting more naked pictures on social media than her fashionable posts, but that she was extremely grateful to be recognised and to be seen as a positive influencer.
