Pop star Lady Gaga was presented with the fashion icon trophy at this year’s Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) award ceremony.
The singer, well known for her outrageous outfits, was given the prize for “being a fashion revolutionary”, the CFDA said.
“All of you made me feel like a star before I was,” Gaga told the audience at New York’s Lincoln Center.
There were also prizes for photographer Arthur Elgort and designer Marc Jacobs.
Elgort, best known for his work on the fashion magazine Vogue, was presented with the special tribute award for his “impact on photography and fashion”.
The Geoffrey Beene lifetime achievement award went to Jacobs.
“This achievement is born of love, passion, creativity and a hell of a lot of hard work,” the 48-year-old designer said.
“I believe we all know and feel the greatest reward is the process itself.”
