2018 CFDA FASHION AWARDS: KIM KARDASHIAN POLARIZES WITH INFLUENCER AWARD WIN!

Kim Kardashian-West showed some skin in Rick Owens at the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards, hosted by Issa Rae and held at Brooklyn Museum on June 4, 2018 in New York City.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star took home the Influencer Award, boasting 112 million Instagram followers. However, the prestigious fashion award going to the reality star was not without controversy, with some believing Kardashian-West isn’t deserving of the honor based on her style and because of some of the controversial products she promotes.
