Hillary Clinton will yet again be honored by the fashion world this October. According to Vogue, Clinton will be the first recipient ever to receive the Michael Kors Award, which is a new addition to the God’s Love We Deliver awards. The charity is a non-profit organization in New York City that provides food and nutrition counseling to people with serious illness. Kors selected Clinton to be honored for her humanitarian commitment and dedication to community services. Kors has worked with the organization for 20 years, honored last year by receiving the Golden Heart Award for Lifetime Achievement. The former Project Runway judge first debuted his women’s collection in 1981 and since then has launched further collections consisting of a wide range of clothing and accessory genres. Because of his regular commitment to God’s Love We Deliver, the New York native was given the chance to distribute his own award, the Michael Kors Award for Outstanding Community Service. “I am deeply honored to present Mrs. Clinton with this award that means so much to me,” Kors said in a statement. “She is a dedicated and enormously effective humanitarian whose commitment to community service encompasses the whole planet. Thanks to her talent, devotion and unrelenting efforts on behalf of those with much less, she has improved millions of lives and helped lay the foundation for a better, more just world.” CNN reports that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour will present Clinton’s award alongside Kors. The award ceremony will take place on October 16, which happens to be World Food Day. Image: Wiki Media Commons
