KKW Beauty mogul, Skims founder, queen of reality TV, activist, future lawyer, breaker of the internet; while the list may go on and on, one thing is for sure, Kim Kardashian West is absolutely a fashion icon. Announced today by NBC and E!, the multi-hyphenate superstar will receive “The Fashion Icon” award at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards on December 7th and will air at 9pm ET/PT from Santa Monica, CA.
For her outrageous success as an entrepreneur, activist, fashion and beauty mogul, Kardashian will be honored for the lasting impact she has made on the sartorial landscape since her rise to fame in 2007 following the introduction of the hit E! reality series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which just concluded its 20th and final season.
“For nearly two decades, Kim Kardashian West’s style evolution has disrupted and influenced trends on a global level and cemented herself as a force to be reckoned with within the fashion industry” said Jen Neal, Executive Vice President, Entertainment Live Events, Specials & E! News, NBCUniversal Entertainment Television and Streaming. “For being a cultural inspiration, trailblazer and so much more, we can’t wait to honor Kim with this year’s ‘People’s Fashion Icon’ award.”
From Juicy Couture velour tracksuits, to avant-garde Balenciaga catsuits, and eternal Yeezy moments, Kim K’s choice of ensemble has never failed to turn our heads or even drop our jaws. No one deserves this honor more.
