Miley to hand Marc award
Miley Cyrus will attend a major fashion awards next week and hand Marc Jacobs a prize while she is there.
The controversial singer has been confirmed as a presenter at Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars event next week.
Miley will hand Marc and his business partner Robert Duffy the Superstar Award, which is the biggest prize given on the night. It’s thought she was selected after growing close to the former Louis Vuitton designer after she shot a T-shirt campaign with him.
Not content with having Miley with them, Marc and Robert have also asked musical superstar Aretha Franklin to attend, according to WWD.
Fashion Group International is non-profit organisation which has 5,000 members and aims to encourage and support them to be effective in their careers. Each year a number of names are honoured at its annual ceremony, which in 2013 is taking place at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on October 22.
A number of celebrities are attending, with Alexa Chung presenting Christopher Kane with a fashion prize. The same honour will also be bestowed on Angela Missoni and Alexander Wang.
Supermodel-of-the-moment Kate Upton will be on hand to celebrate Carine Roitfeld’s media trophy, with a host of other celebrities expected to get their glad rags on for the event.
Other fashion stars to be taking home prizes include Franca Sozzani and Deborah Needleman.
