Kim Kardashian is without a doubt a style legend. And now she has the price to prove it.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star received the Fashion Icon Award at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards on Tuesday, December 7th.
The founder of SKIMS made a spectacular entrance dressed in Balenciaga to accept the prestigious award, presented by former Fashion Icon Award winner Tracee Ellis Ross.
“Honestly, I’m so honored to be here,” Kardashian said. “I mean, I started out as a closet organizer and stylist. So the fact that I’m winning a Fashion Icon Award is like a pinch moment.
Kardashian also took the opportunity to thank her ex, Ye (formerly Kanye West), for her keen sense of style and influence.
“Thanks to Kanye for really introducing me to the world of fashion,” she greeted rapper “Donda”, whom she filed for divorce in February after six years of marriage.
She noted that there was a time when designers didn’t want to work with her and joked that big names like Ricardo Tisci and Olivier Rousteing “probably [were] I spoke about it when I got a call from Kanye.

“And I fell in love with fashion,” she continued, “and I’m so inspired by so many people. But again, it’s like a dream to wake up and wear these amazing clothes and to try new things, you know, to take a risk.
She concluded: “I am so touched, thank you very much.”
The founder of KKW Beauty made sure to drop the jawbone with her unique look.
Similar to her animated Met Gala 2021 ensemble, Kardashian wore a black outfit from head to toe, complete with chunky black sunglasses that she teamed with a matching catsuit worn under a minidress, tights, and pointy heels.
The star was spotted attending the event solo. However, her family members showed their support in the crowd, including Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian.

Over the years, Kardashian has continued to make fans swoon with her daring and dazzling fashion. Whether she pushes the limits on the red carpet or runs errands in full glamor, she never misses a beat in the style department.
No wonder she launched her own clothing line in 2018: SKIMS.
“This is what I needed,” she told E! News in 2019. “I’ve been obsessed with traditional shapewear for about 15 years, but I’ve always cut them out and created my own styles because all the brands I found wouldn’t really do that, they didn’t. just didn’t. things that I really needed.
Her influence on the fashion industry is just one of the many reasons she received the Fashion Icon Award.
“For nearly two decades, Kim Kardashian West’s style evolution has disrupted and influenced trends globally and has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry,” Jen Neal, Executive Vice President of Entertainment Live Events, Specials & E! News, previously said in a statement. “To be a cultural inspiration, a trailblazer and more, we look forward to honoring Kim with this year’s People’s Fashion Icon Award.”
