The award is given to a person whose style has made a tremendous impact on pop culture around the world. Past recipients include Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Iman, Kate Moss and Nicole Kidman. Johnny Depp is the only other male who have received it (2012).

The 42-year old Williams, who is also a fashion designer of eyewear collection for Louis Vuitton and Moncler and a co-founder of the clothing brands Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream Footwear, is known for his iconic personal style and participation in many different design projects, so it's not a big surprise that he will receive this recognition.

Asked about his personal clothing choices he said: 'It's how you feel when you wake up in the morning, where your head is and what the weather's going to be like. If you follow those three things, you'll always be true to yourself and your intention will be transparent. That's what I love. I love when things are transparent, free and clear of all inhibition and judgement'.

, said Diana von Furstenberg, President of the CFDA.
