Congratulations are in order for Jennifer Lopez.

The 49-year-old actress and singer is set to receive the Fashion Icon award at the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards this June. According to the organization, the honor recognizes Lopez's "longstanding and global impact on fashion."

"Jennifer Lopez uses clothes as a way to express confidence and power," current CFDA chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg told the organization in a statement on Tuesday. "Both designers and fans look forward to her fashion statements."

It's no secret Lopez likes to have fun with fashion. Who could forget the pink Giambattista Valli gown she wore to her Second Act premiere, or the Balmain number she wore to the 2018 Met Gala? In fact, the "Jenny From the Block" star is one of the committee members for this year's Met Gala. She's joined by Bradley Cooper, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Katy Perry, fiancé Alex Rodriguez and more.

"Jennifer Lopez's style is bold, uninhibited, and always memorable," Steven Kolb, president and CEO of the CFDA, told the organization in a statement. "Designers, including many of our CFDA Members, love to dress her for both stage and private moments."
