Our own Rose Byrne is held in high regard by the bigwigs at Calvin Klein

She's been chosen to award their womenswear creative director Francisco Costa with the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award on May 7, at the Pratt Institute Fashion Show and Cocktail Benefit in New York.

It's a big deal for an Australian to be chosen to present at the benefit, but we're not surprised by Byrne's selection: the perennially chic actress is the perfect fit for Calvin Klein and is often spotted wearing their designs on the red carpet. It's been a big year already for Byrne: locally, she was awarded the inaugural AACTA Trailblazer Award and continues to front Oroton's campaigns; and globally she's starred in Broadway's You Can't Take it With You opposite James Earl Jones and espionage spoof Spy with Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law, which opens in Australian cinemas on May 21.

Costa is being honoured for two decades of excellence in the fashion industry, including 13 years at Calvin Klein, at the benefit.
