While she’s best-known for her infectious pop hits, Rihanna has made an undeniable mark on the fashion industry as well.

So, it came as no surprise to hear that the Council of Fashion Designers of America have selected the “We Found Love” singer to receive the Fashion Icon Award for 2014.

CEO Steven Kolb announced that Rihanna will accept the trophy on June 2 in New York City. “We are proud to present Rihanna with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award for her impact on the industry as fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory.”

Per the CFDA, the Fashion Icon Award is “given to an individual whose style has made a significant impact on popular culture on an international stage.”
