Kerry Washington will be presented with the prize at the event at Cipriani Wall. Designer, Dries Van Noten is set to receive the Superstar award, while Thom Browne, Isabel Marant and Simone Rocha will receive Fashion Star prizes.
FGI’s president and chief executive officer Margaret Hayes said: “As the modern voices they represent, each of this year’s Night of Stars honorees speaks, through their work, with vision, truth and authority.”
Simon Doonan will host the black-tie ceremony.
Meanwhile, Kerry – who is renowned for her stylish red-carpet looks – recently revealed she gets her fashion inspiration from many different places.
She explained: “From all over – from travel, from magazines, from movies. Music videos. It’s such an important aesthetic medium.”
Recently, Kerry has branched out into designing and she created a stunning clutch with Dee Ocleppo, with 25 per cent of proceeds going to domestic violence charity, the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse.
