He’s not only managed to make us happy but also influenced the international stage in terms of fashion. Last year he made a bold statement with his iconic style – which has been widely adopted by the likes of Justin Bieber and Octopizzo. This year, he gets feted for his warm soul and intrinsic sense of style.
The 2015 CFDA Fashion Icon Award goes to Pharrell Williams for his major contribution to fashion trends in pop culture. His Grammy Awards appearance left mouths talking for weeks as no one expected that he would wear something out of this world; a special light-reflective suit.
“If cool was a person, it would be Pharrell, not just for his looks and sense of style but for his kindness and openness. I cannot imagine anyone not seduced by him,” Diane von Furstenberg, President of the CFDA, admitted of having fallen in love with the singer-producer’s style.
Johnny Depp, Kate Moss and Lady Gaga are some of the honorees in this years CFDA awards.
