The singer is being recognized for her eccentric style! Do you think she deserves the award?

Whether she’s wearing a meat dress or storming the runway for Thierry Mugler, there’s no denying the fact that Lady Gaga always manages to make a fashion statement. While some may think her style is too far out, the Council of Fashion Designers of America is honoring the singer for taking risks with the Fashion Icon Award at the CFDA Awards on June 6 at Lincoln Center in NYC.

The singer isn’t the only one we can expect to see on hand at the show — Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen are nominated for the Swarovski Award for up-and-coming talent in the women’s wear category. The talented twins are up against designers Joseph Altuzarra and Prabal Gurung.

Lady Gaga will be joining the ranks of stylish stars like Iman, Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicole Kidman, who have all received the award in the past. Personally, I go back and forth with how I feel about Gaga, and I’m not too sure I’m totally sold on praising her as a ‘Fashion Icon.’ Sure, she has worn some iconic looks — but is she really worthy of the award? What do you think?
