Our number one Dutch supermodel Lara Stone received the award for Model of the Year last night at The British Fashion Awards (BFA). She competed with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Georgia May Jagger won the award last year.
Alexa Chung, Naomi Campbell and Burberry were amongst those lucky ones too. Phoebe Philo (for Céline) went home with the award for Designer of the Year. Christopher Kane and Erdem were nominated too. Well deserved for Philo, we think!
During the Dutch version of the BFA – The Dutch Fashion Awards – designer Iris van Herpen won the award for Designer of the Year, the Accessory Award and the Fashion Incubator Award. Nice fact: Mario Testino shot Lara in Iris’ futuristic shoes for the December issue of Vogue UK. You can read about it in here.
For all those BFA winners: congratz!
