Jennifer Lopez to be honored with the 2019 CFDA Fashion Icon award for her global impact on Fashion… This is one award where she’s actually deserving.
t only took one dress for Jennifer Lopez to ascend to fashion icon status. In 2000, she wore a plunging, jungle green Versace number to the Grammy awards, establishing herself as a stylish risk taker and cementing her place in the history books. But rather than hang up her stilettos after that paradigm-shifting look, Lopez has only continued to experiment with fashion, whether it be the glittering bodysuits she wears on tour, the mint V. gown modeled on a dress worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that Lopez chose for the Oscars in 2003, or her daily street style looks that are photographed by paparazzi and discussed ad infinitum by the fashion press. It’s fitting, then, that Lopez will be honored with the Fashion Icon Award at the 2019 CFDA Awards.
