The beautiful Issa Rae is set to host the 2018 CFDA Awards. The actress and funny woman has been making a splash the last several years since inking a deal with HBO. The CFDA Awards is like fashion industry’s version of the Oscars.
The CFDA stands for Council of Fashion Designers of America. The event honors designers, style, and fashion influencers. Past winners include The Row’s Olsen twins, Tom Ford, and Raf Simons just to name a few.
Issa Rae, the creator of Insecure an HBO series which I watch faithfully is full of life and funny antics. She got her start on YouTube with the series Akward Black Girl which was a hit.
The CDFA’s will take place on June 4, 2018. The ceremony is destined to be great such as previous awards.
“Issa Rae is leading a new generation of performers who use their voice and humor to discuss social topics in a way that is relatable and poignant,” said Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA in a press release. The event is also trading in its previous location at the Hammerstein Ballroom in favor of Kings County. “We are also excited to take the awards to Brooklyn this year,” he said. “The Brooklyn Museum is a strong and iconic backdrop to one of fashion’s biggest nights.”
Known for its non-traditional red carpets the CDFA offer celebrities a chance to take a style risk. You’ll be bound to see some of the most trendy stars, celebrities, beauty icons, designers, and influencers all in one place.
Remember Rihanna’s iconic Adam Selman naked dress that forever remains a source of inspiration. Issa Rae is sure to please and bring her own akward but beautiful style to the ceremony.
Seth Meyers hosted last year’s awards and we can’t wait to see what the fashion industry has in store this year.
So be sure to tune in…
