As Daily Mail reported, the 48-year-old made a great entrance showing up in a red fringe dress paired with a set of classic red heels. She sported many accessories, including a large black choker, a layered necklace, a sparkly cuff, and rings.

Campbell wore her hair down and stick straight, in her signature style. The iconic model shared her a picture of her stunning outfit in her Instagram, thanking the designer of her dress, Calvin Klein’s Raf Simons, in her caption.

The prestigious Fashion Icon award is the top honor in the annual event, and among the stars that have been previously honored with the title are the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, and Pharrell Williams.

It was only a matter of time before Campbell was given official icon status by the American fashion guild, but she certainly stole the show the night of the award ceremony, being the most anticipated guest of the event

‘I was told many times that I couldn’t do certain things because of the color of my skin. I let it drive me. And of course, I’m human, and I found it hard at times not to take it personally,’ Campbell said.

‘But I stand here today as a proud woman of color, and I will continue to push for diversity and equality in this industry,’ she added. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
