The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards honors the excellence in fashion design and is often referred to as the Oscars of fashion.

Annual nominations are created by a team of over 1,500 CFDA members, fashion editors, retailers, and stylists. Awards are distributed among winners at the luxury ceremony at Lincoln Center in NYC.

While receiving the award, the Hollywood star gave an emotional speech, remembering two talented fashion icons, who passed away last year: hairstylists Kevyn Aucoin and Oribe Canales. They were the ones who helped Jennifer Lopez create her unique image at the beginning of her career.

While talking about them, the singer turned away from the camera, and people could see tears on her eyes.

We lost two (great) artists this year, Kevyn Aucoin and Oribe, who helped turn me from an around-the-way girl. I said I wouldn't cry. Together we created so many iconic looks, and I'm forever grateful. And tonight, I'm dedicating this award to them.
