An Update In the CFDA's Expanding Presenters List

An Update In the CFDA's Expanding Presenters List

Text: Aria Darcella

The CFDA loves Instagram. LOVES it. In addition to culling images together for the book Designers on Instagram #Fashion, they also plan to bestow the 2015 Media Award upon founder Kevin Systrom. In an update this morning, it was announced that Kim Kardashian-West would be the one to present the accolade during the CFDA awards on June 1.

It’s a fitting choice, given that her book Selfish, comprised entirely of selfies, recently came out. Kim broke the news of her presenter duties on, wait for it, Instagram. Ever so meta!

To be fair, this is the media award, and not the news award, and social media has quickly taken over how we communicate as a culture. What better way to get the inside details on a show or shoot than from the source? Yeah, the images are often grainy or blurry, but we’ll let that slide, considering how many Instagrammers are not professional photographers. This doesn’t even count the news that happens on Instagram—case in point, the fact that Kim’s Insta-announcement is making headlines.

So, congratulations, Instagram. Good luck Kim. And no hard feelings, Twitter.
