The actress has been invited to honour the late designer at the CDFA Awards, which are due to be held on June 7 in New York. She will present the CFDA Board of Directors' Special Tribute Award to McQueen at this year's event.

SJP attended the 2003 Costume Institute Gala along with McQueen, in which the pair wore matching tartan designs. Following his death in February this year, Parker said: "Every single inspired, original, lofty, whimsical, stunning, brilliant and jaw-dropping detail was Alexander McQueen."
