Pharrell Williams has won the 2015 Fashion Icon Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. With style as recognizable as his music, the Academy Award-nominated songster possesses an extensive list of successful collaborative design projects — Uniqlo, Moynat, adidas, G-Star and Moncler to name a few — and has also appeared in some notable high-fashion campaigns, including a Karl Lagerfeld-directed Chanel film with costar Cara Delevingne. Since his early years in the spotlight, Williams has always had an eccentric and imaginative style, occasionally pushing boundaries against traditional menswear norms. Having already been earned a spot on Vanity Fair‘s Best-Dressed list last year, the Grammy-winning musician will officially receive the award on June 1 at the Alice Tully Hall.
