Influencer Award: Kim Kardashian West


During her acceptance speech, Kim Kardashian West joked that she’s always naked and that she wasn’t expecting to win the Influencer Award from the CFDA but, she did and I think it’s well deserved.

The Kardashian/Jenner haters and some individuals in the fashion industry do not understand why she won this new award and I’m a bit confused about all the hate. Let me explain why, Kim and her sisters have influenced the fashion industry for the past decade and no one can take that away from them – her sister won the Icon Award last year.

Personally, Kim made me embrace my curves and want to show them off and try new styles. She even made me feel like I could bounce back and still be sexy as a mom. Kim, the award is well-deserved!
