NBC and E! announced on Tuesday, Nov. 30 that the entrepreneur, fashionista and beauty mogul will receive the Fashion Icon Award at the 2021 People's Choice Awards on Tuesday, Dec. 7.

"For nearly two decades, Kim Kardashian West's style evolution has disrupted and influenced trends on a global level and cemented herself as a force to be reckoned with within the fashion industry," said Jen Neal, Executive Vice President, Entertainment Live Events, Specials & E! News, NBCUniversal Entertainment Television and Streaming. "For being a cultural inspiration, trailblazer and so much more, we can't wait to honor Kim with this year's People's Fashion Icon Award."
Over the past two decades, Kim continually wows us on the red carpet, surprising us with cutting-edge fashions and editorial looks that keep us guessing what she'll wear next.

It's no wonder that Kim's risk-taking sartorial efforts have cemented her as a fashion icon in Hollywood.
