For the first time in almost a decade a woman will hold sway over the podium at the renown CFDA Fashion Awards and that woman is none other than Issa Rae. On June 4, the Senegalese American actress-director-producer will take over hosting duties from Seth Meyers and host the ‘Oscars’ of Fashion in Partnership with Swarovski.
The Council of Fashion Designers celebrates the best in fashion with categories such as Best Womenswear Designer of the Year and Best Accessories Designer of the Year. Past luminaries include Paul Andrew, Raf Simons and Marc Jacobs.
Today’s big announcement has to do with the #CFDAAwards! Now that we know the host (@issarae!!) and location (@brooklynmuseum!!), we’re holding our breath to find out this year’s nominees and honorees, which will be revealed on March 15th on @cfda’s Instagram. Mark your calendars! ✨ @swarovski #BrooklynMuseum
The creator of the critically acclaimed hit show on HBO, “Insecure,” and two time Best Actress Golden Globe nominee tweeted:
So excited to announce that I will be hosting the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 4th! Mark your calendars!
Is anyone else hoping for a ‘rooting for everybody black’ moment? #CannotWait
