Late Night star James Corden to host CFDA Fashion Awards

The new star of late night television will be infusing his comedy into the upcoming CFDA Fashion Awards. James Corden has been announced as the host of the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards.

The event will be taking place on June 1st at the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, The Hollywood Reporter added. The pick isn’t without controversy, but CFDA CEO Steven Kolb explained why in a recent statement the council chose Corden as the host. “As the charming and funny new host of The Late Late Show, we couldn’t think of a better time for James Corden to share his observations on American fashion at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards,” said Kolb.

CFDA announced the news via their Instagram account.

Now the wait will be to see what kind of fashion observations and jokes Corden will be making about those fashion forward celebrities in attendance.

Marie Claire reported that Corden has been experiencing success with his Late Late Night talk show and enjoyed a video of David Beckham and himself mocking an underwear campaign.
