Ryan Seacrest will host Fashion Rocks.
The charity event - which will be attended by an impressive array of celebrities - combines the world of fashion with musical performances and will broadcast on CBS for the first time since 2008.
The American Idol presenter can't wait to get on stage at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on September 9 for the event: "I'm always excited to be a part of live events, and Fashion Rocks combines three of my favorite things - music, fashion and New York City." Ryan added that he was determined to "make it an amazing and memorable night."
A huge string of diverse musical performers have already been confirmed for the two-hour extravaganza, including Jennifer Lopez, KISS, Pitbull, The Band Perry, Duran Duran, Afrojack, Miranda Lambert, Rita Ora, and Usher.
Both designers and fashion bloggers alike heralded Rihanna's dress at last week's CFDA Awards - at which she won the Fashion Icon of the Year award - but one pair of fellow female musicians are voicing their dislike of the "Diamonds" singer's style.
Referring to Rihanna, T-Boz of TLC said, "Every time I see you you don't have to be naked... It's hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, 'Oh TLC must be jealous,' but I call a spade a spade."

Madonna is being sued over her fitness brand.
The "Hung Up" hitmaker has been accused by beauty and fashion company Hard Candy of maliciously stealing their name to sell exercise DVDs and apparel and the firm have filed a lawsuit in federal court for trademark infringement and unfair competition.
The case claims the 55-year-old singer began selling her goods under the Hard Candy name in 2011 despite a previous rejection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. "Defendants' actions have caused and will cause Hard Candy, LLC irreparable harm for which money damages and other legal remedies are inadequate. Unless Defendants are restrained by this Court, Defendants will continue and/or expand the improper activities alleged in this Complaint and otherwise continue to cause great and irreparable harm and injury to Hard Candy, LLC," federal court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com state.
The lawsuit also targets Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, but claims the "Material Girl" singer is "the driving force behind the infringing activity, taking credit herself for the initial selection and subsequent expansion."
Janelle Monae doesn't want to dress sexily.
The "Tightrope" singer feels her voice should be the main focus of people's attention when they are watching her perform, rather than her body.
"There are no women who perform fully clothed - still to this day there aren't. To me, that was a problem, to say 'If you want to be in the music industry, you need to be able to sell sex' ... I want to be in control of my body. I don't ever want a man or a woman to tell me to dress that way. I think its up to me."
Janelle, 28, also said she never takes too long thinking about her stage costumes, favoring black suits, because worrying about her wardrobe interferes with her creativity. "If I have to think about my outfit for longer than, like, two minutes, I've wasted my time. Who wants to think about, 'What am I going to wear to this performance?' I need to be focusing on creating, changing the world," she told Britain's Marie Claire.
Vogue darling Rihanna is set to launch her own fashion label soon.
While the singer has kept a tight lip about details concerning her upcoming line, she has spoken about the large part style played in the success of her music career: "It's not all down to my voice... There's people with way more talent than I when it comes to singing; bigger voices. But people want to know who you are. Fashion is a clear indication, a way to express your attitude, your mood."
Having previously worked on collections for both Emporio Armani Underwear/Armani Jeans and River Island - not to mention how fashion designers Alexander Wang, Tom Ford, and Peter Dundas have praised her fashion choices - the 26-year-old has already made some headway into the industry.
There's no word yet as to when her label is due for unveiling.

Taylor Swift has drastically changed her signature long, blonde locks.
The "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer posted a video on her Instagram displaying all of the folks circled around to watch her get her hair lopped off. "This is how many people are watching me getting a haircut right now... We don’t do anything without an audience, do we?” she says in the video, while her audience laughs and cheers her on.

Taylor Swift will never pose naked for a photo shoot.
The "22" singer has no intention of stripping off for a magazine or in her videos like many of her pop rivals, such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna, because she doesn't think it's necessary for her to "push the envelope" by revealing her body.
"I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don't really feel like taking them off. It's not an urge I have. For me 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That's putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off," she told Glamour.
The 23-year-old musician also revealed she likes to have the upper hand when it comes to dating and will often "freeze-out" guys from her life who she believes are playing with her emotions: "[What's freeze-out?] You don't respond to any of his texts or calls until he does something desperate [like] shows up. Or he calls and leaves a voicemail. Something that makes it very clear to you that he's interested."
One of Beyonce's biggest fans has offered to buy the dress she wore to the Grammy Awards for $250,000.
The "XO" hitmaker, who caused controversy with her steamy performance at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night, wore a white and sheer gown by Project Runway designer Michael Costello on the red carpet and he is currently debating whether to sell the delicate ensemble.
"There's a guy who's an obsessive Beyonce fan who offered us $250,000 for the dress. It's crazy. I'm debating. I want to keep it! It's a dream come true," he told People.com.
Michael made six dresses for the 32-year-old star for the event and previously admitted he was wowed by her "tiny, amazing" body. The blonde beauty, who is married to rapper Jay Z with whom she has a two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, reportedly dropped 70 pounds in recent months after following a largely vegetarian diet. Once known for her curvy figure, Beyonce is now said to be a size 2.
probably currently listening to Beyonce's new album and will be watching her upcoming Grammy Awards performance this Sunday, why not smell like her latest fragrance, too?
The iTunes record-breaking mother of one has just unveiled the latest advertising campaign for her new perfume, Rise. Naturally, she looks both amazingly fierce and seductively beautiful in the image, which was crafted by film director Jake Nava. “The spirit of Rise encourages women to be all that we are,” Beyonce said of her fragrance, which contains hints of apricot, iced basil sorbet, and orchid.
Beyonce Rise will hit stores next month - just in time for Valentine's Day!
