The Kardashians star, 42, was awarded the first-ever Innovation Award, presented for her shapewear brand SKIMS, and used the moment to call for designers to be inclusive for all body shapes.
SKIMS co-founder and CEO Jens Grede and founding partner and chief product officer Emma Grede also joined Kardashian to receive the inaugural award, which was presented to her by Martha Stewart.
Picking up the honour, the SKKN entrepreneur said: “We have put a strong emphasis since our launch on continuing to shape the industry to embrace size equality and diversity as a fixture and not just a trend and I see so many of you are doing just that.”
Clad in a Dolce & Gabbana PVC gown, the star was supported on the night by her mother, Kris Jenner, as well as her sisters, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie Jenner as she accepted her award.
Bradley Cooper, Trevor Noah, Amy Schumer, Christina Ricci, and Kerry Washington were among the presenters on a night when a variety of designers took home trophies and Lenny Kravitz received the CFDA’s Fashion Icon Award.
