Consider the CFDA Awards right up there next to the Met Ball as one of the biggest nights of the year for the fashion set.

Tonight the stars are stepping out to Lincoln Center for the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. So who is up for the most coveted fashion award this evening, you ask?

Well, Rihanna, for one. The 26-year-old singer will receive the Fashion Icon Award to pay tribute to all her killer red carpet ensembles, and to honor her for never playing it safe, style-wise.

This year's nominees include household designer names like Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs (who are both up for Womenswear Designer of the Year), as well as Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen, who are up for Accessories Designer of the Year for their fashion label, The Row.

And we're only getting started. The night will also be full of A-list presenters, like Lupita Nyong'o, who will present the womenswear award. And James Marsden will present the winner of the menswear category.
