A cursory look at Rihanna’s Instagram page will reveal that when it comes to style, nobody is touching the Bajan beauty. Now the R&B singer is being saluted for her fashionable taste by the CFDA.

Rihanna will receive the Fashion Icon Award at the annual CFDA Fashion Awards on June 2. The record-breaking, fierce-dressing, usually nearly-nude superstar is being recognized for her contributions to the fashion industry as well as her philanthropic endeavors via her MAC AIDS Fund’s Viva Glam campaign.

“We are proud to present Rihanna with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award for her impact on the industry as fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory,” said Steven Kolb, CEO of CFDA (via PR Newswire).

The songstress joins an illustrious list of previous fashion trendsetting honorees including Iman, Kate Moss, Lady Gaga and Nicole Kidman.
