Lady Gaga named top style icon

Lady Gaga has been named the recipient of this year's style icon award from the Council Of Fashion Designers Of America.

The singer, who's made her mark on the fashion world with a series of bizarre creations including a meat dress, will receive the gong on June 6.

Recently, The Born This Way artist was carried on to the Grammy Awards' stage in an egg, in which she had been "incubating".

Gaga's name was announced for the annual industry awards at a reception on Wednesday evening.

Twins Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have been nominated in the womenswear category for emerging talent.

US designer Marc Jacobs will get the lifetime achievement gong and is also up for womenswear designer of the year.

Fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg, who announced the nominees and winners, said that designers were planning an online auction to raise money for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
