Kim Kardashian West already has a lengthy resume, but she's about to add one more major accomplishment. As Vogue reports, she's set to receive the CFDA's first-ever Influencer Award. The annual CFDA Awards typically focus on designer achievements, with categories including Womenswear Designer of the Year, Accessory Designer of the Year, and the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent. However, this will be the first year that an Influencer Award will be added to the lineup—so Kardashian West is certainly making history.

"Over the past decade, Kim Kardashian West has mastered the meaning of influence in the digital age," CFDA Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg stated in a press release. Mark your calendars: The event will be held on June 4. In the meantime, scroll down to see her Instagram posts from the past week that have had the highest level of engagement.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
