Reality TV star, and one of the most followed people on Instagram – Kim Kardashian – will (rather fittingly) present the founder of the social media platform with his CFDA Award next month. Get the scoop here...

In March, Buro 24/7 Middle East revealed that for the first time ever Instagram would be honoured at the 2015 CFDA Awards. The social media giant will receive the 'Media Award in Honour of Eugenia Sheppard', which also marks the first time the prestigious award has been given to a business over an individual.

Now we can announce that the award will be given to Instagram founder Kevin Systrom, by an incredibly fitting person – the third most followed Instagram account holder (after Instagram's own account and Beyoncé) on the planet, Kim Kardashian. Of course the queen of the selfie first shared the news via Instagram, posting a picture with Systrom with the caption "Couldn't be more excited to present the @CFDA Media Award to Instagram's founder @Kevin Systrom at the 2015 #CFDAAwards on June 1st!"

Other CFDA Award presenters recently revealed include Empire star Taraji P. Henson, Vogue's latest cover girl Amanda Seyfried and Joshua Jackson. Stay tuned for more 2015 CFDA Awards and be sure to check in first thing on June 2 morning for all of the CFDA news and pictures.
