Next week, on Friday September 8, The Daily Front Row will hold its 2017 Fashion Media Awards. Model Ashley Graham is set to host the evening, and it will take place in New York with some of the world's most beautiful people in attendance.

The online site has just announced the honourees for this year's ceremony and Kendall Jenner has been revealed to be the recipient of the 'Fashion Icon of the Decade' award. Considering Kendall only walked her first runway six years ago in 2011, it's clear the model has made a significant impact on the modelling industry in that short time, fronting campaigns for Adidas, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein and Fendi and walking countless runways for the likes of Chanel, Balmain and Alexander Wang. Last year, she was ranked by Forbes as the world's third highest paid model, raking in a cool Dhs36.7 million for the year alone.

The award is even more special considering this is the first time it's been given in the event's five year history.

The younger half-sister of Kim Kardashian West will be amongst prestigious company on the night, with Mario Testino receiving 'Creative of the Year' at the ceremony also. 

Given it's such a momentous honour for Kendall, we're not-so secretly hoping we'll get a full Kardashian/Jenner red carpet appearance to celebrate.
