Kim Kardashian was honoured with the Fashion Icon award at the People's Choice Awards 2021. 

Whenever the reality TV star steps out, it is always a jaw-dropping fashion moment. She can whip up a pair of joggers and forge a couture look effortlessly. Kim recently caused a scene when she graced the red carpet at this year's Met Gala in a Balenciaga all-black ensemble that covered her face too. It was a gutsy and unforgettable look.
