Last night was the CFDA Fashion awards in NYC and back in March we told you about Pharrell receiving The CFDA Fashion Icon Award because of making a significant impact on popular culture on an international stage.. Well, Kanye West was on hand to present his “style idol” with the award as their wives Kim Kardashian and Helen Lasichanh looked on.
According to Rap-Up Kanye starts off by saying:
“Pharrell has always been my style idol. And there would be no me, no A$AP, without Pharrell,” said ‘Ye.
An overwhelmed Pharrell humbly took the podium to accept his award. “No one has better style than the everyday American people. Why? Because they’re the real thing and they live it every day,” he said. “I can never be as cool as them, but I’m happy to take notes. I’m not a style icon, I’m just inspired. I am other and I am OK with that.”
