Suzy Menkes to Be Honored at Pitti Uomo With Prestigious Italian Award

After all that hate Cathy Horyn received earlier this year, it's nice to hear news of a fashion critic actually getting some appreciation: Suzy Menkes, renowned fashion critic for the International Herald Tribune, will receive the Fiorino d’Oro during the upcoming Pitti Uomo, WWD is reporting.

The award is conferred by the Municipality of Florence, given to "international personalities who have distinguished themselves and contributed to the society’s social and cultural development." Menkes will receive the award January 9 at Florence's Palazzo Vecchio.

It isn't the first high-profile international award for Menkes; she has also been given an Order of the British Empire and named a chevalier of the Legion of Honor for her services to journalism.
