Rose Byrne to honour Francisco Costa

Rose Byrne has been chosen to honour Francisco Costa with the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award next month.

The event takes place on May 7 and will see the creative director of Calvin Klein pick up the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award.

Now it’s been revealed the stylish actress has the task of presenting Francisco with the prize at the ceremony, which will be held in New York.

It’s not much of a surprise Rose has been chosen for the honour. She is a huge fan of Francisco’s designs and wore a beautiful pink Calvin Klein dress to the Emmys in 2013.

Rose’s dress was fairly daring, showing off her midriff, but it’s all part and parcel for the 35-year-old, who is used to dressing up for red carpets now.

"I have definitely developed more confidence in my style as I've got older. These days it's hard to shock; in comparison to the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga, I'd say I'm pretty middle-of-the-road," she told British magazine InStyle. "I love the romantic drama of something by Valentino, or Philip Lim for an edgy, downtown feel. I think it's far more interesting what people wear to, say, the Grammys than the Emmys. All those ladies treat the red carpet like a performance - it's fun to watch."

News Francisco would be honoured broke in March, with a statement revealing why he had been chosen.

"We are thrilled to honour Francisco Costa with the 2015 Pratt Fashion Visionary Award. He is one of the greatest leaders in fashion today, and has been for decades with his exquisite tailoring and minimal, modern silhouettes," Jennifer Minniti, Fashion Department chair at Pratt Institute, said.
