It’s no surprise that singer/song writer/music producer Pharell Williams will be receiving the CFDA icon award this year. Afterall, his hats have made headlines along with his style. Williams will be joining past icon award winners such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman and Johnny Depp (quite the group to be in might I add).

Williams has also collaborated with brands such as Adidas and co-founded brands such as Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream Footwear. When asked about Williams being chosen for the award, president of the CFDA Diane von Furstenberg said: “If cool was a person, it would be Pharrell, not just for his looks and sense of style but for his kindness and openness. I cannot imagine anyone not seduced by him.”
