As for why it was “important” for her to present at the CFDA Fashion Awards, Christina said, ‘My mother was a model, and so I grew up watching Elsa Klensch on CNN every Sunday morning at 10 a.m. and following fashion and being obsessed with it… I fell in love with fashion very young, so to be asked to present in a world like this actually means something to me.”
At the show, Lenny Kravitz was honored with the Fashion Icon award. Christina commented, “He’s just, like, the man. He supports women, he loves women, he supports all kinds of people and love and his messaging, and his energy is incredible. His music is iconic… Nobody else can do what he does.”
