Johnny Depp is Fashion Icon? CFDA is Sure He Is
Johnny Depp and his weird imagination of what style is caught the eye of the Council of Fashion Designers of America , and the group will give him its fashion icon award at its annual gala in June. CFDApresident Diane von Furstenberg and CEO Steven Kolb announced details of the awards ceremony last night. The nominees for womenswear designer of the year, the biggest prize, are Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen for The Row, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler, and Marc Jacobs.
Kolb said in a news release:
This year, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the CFDA, we can see what a critical role the CFDA Fashion Awards continue to play in our efforts to promote American Fashion. This year’s nominees truly represent the important influence of American design. We look forward to once again honoring the best and brightest talent working today.”
