An unlikely choice but a great one at that, British actor and comedian James Corden will host the CFDA Fashion Awards, an official announcement has revealed. Set to take place on June 1 at the Lincoln Center, Corden will follow in the footsteps of Seth Meyers, Andy Cohen and most recently John Waters – all previous CFDA Awards emcees. 

"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 Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA.
