Bravo's Andy Cohen is pausing from breaking up catfights between the ladies of The Real Housewives for a very special reason. The Watch What Happens host has been selected to emcee this year's CFDA Awards, which will take place June 3 at Lincoln Center in New York City.

"I am terrified and thrilled to be hosting the show because the fashion community is both exciting and intimidating to me. At least I know that I can get a black DVF wrap dress and I know I'm going to look great in it," Andy joked to E! News. 

Cohen's pal, designer and CFDA president Diane Von Furstenberg praised the 44-year-old, saying in a statement: "Andy Cohen is a friend of the fashion industry and we are thrilled to have him host the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards." Indeed, Cohen includes fashion big wigs such as Sarah Jessica Parker among his closest friends.

Also, on that list? Pals Seth Meyers and Anderson Cooperwho have previously hosted the ceremony.

Are you excited for Andy to host the chic awards show?
