Television personality and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West will receive a Fashion Icon Award during the upcoming People’s Choice Awards, organizers announced Tuesday.
The award will recognize “her keen fashion sense, her unprecedented entrepreneurial success, and single-handedly transforming the fashion industry through her innovative designs and trend-setting style over the past decade.”
“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,” Jen Neal, an executive vice president at NBCUniversal Entertainment Television and Streaming, said in a statement. “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.”
She will receive the honor during the Dec. 7 ceremony at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.
People’s Choice Award producers recognized Kardashian West’s popularity both on television and on social media, but also noted her September 2019 launch of shapewear brand SKIMS, saying it was recently valued at more than $1 billion, as well as her beauty brands KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance.
