Kim Kardashian will be the first fashionista to receive the Council of Fashion Designers of America's (CFDA) Influencer Award, which recognizes her impact in the world of fashion and beauty. Kim's fans say she's definitely an iconic celebrity fashion influencer. But some feel Kim isn't the most fashionable and doesn't deserve such an honor from the fashion authority just because of her huge social following. Is Kim really the ultimate fashion influencer?

The CFDA Fashion Awards recognize the best in American design. The organization was established in 1981 and is fashion's highest honor. So it totally makes sense the red carpet at the CFDA Fashion Awards is one of fashion's biggest nights. This year, the ceremony will take place at the Brooklyn Museum.

Kim has been the brand ambassador for major brands like Calvin Klein, Yeezy and has appeared on the cover of Vogue Magazine. The organization says only a few have been able to master influence and impact like Kim. 

Over the past decade,” said CFDA Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg, “Kim Kardashian West has mastered the meaning of influence in the digital age.”

But according to New York Post, fashion insiders are mocking the organization's decision to award the lead Kardashian and are accusing her of "squandering its cred."

“Part of the award has to do with the zeitgeist, and it’s certainly the CFDA’s point to be ‘with it,’ ” said designer Jeffrey Banks, who sits on the Emeritus Board of the CFDA.
“It’s the same as the Met Ball. In the days of the old Met Ball, it was about New York society and fashion and designers,” Banks added. “Now you have . . . people who are really not connected to fashion at all taking up a lot of space on that carpet.”
