Kim Kardashian Drags Her Critics While Accepting 2018 CFDA Influencer Award
Kim Kardashian did not spare her haters last night while accepting the inaugural influencer award at the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards!
“I’m kind of shocked that I’m winning a fashion award when I’m Nakked most of the time,” she teased on stage. “This is seriously such an honor.”
Then she recalled the time “maybe seven years ago” when a former publicist asked Kim what her goals were, and when she she said she wanted to be on the cover of a fashion magazine, she noted that the publicist saying to her, “‘Let’s get some realistic goals because that will never happen.”
She told the audience that she sent that publicist an autographed copy of her Vogue cover. “It’s a really trip,” she concluded, “getting an award for fashion when it’s something I’ve always really loved.”
Speaking about Kim’s award, the CFDA president and CEO Steven Kolb told WWD it was Tommy Hilfiger‘s idea to bestow the honor onto Kardashian.
“‘If you think about influencers and how they’ve changed our industry, I think we should acknowledge that.’ [The board] all agreed that Kim was someone who has really impacted the industry and has changed the way brands are presented. She’s a friend of a lot of the designers and has had great influence on fashion globally,” he recalled the designer saying.
Kim has won it, now the haters can choke!
