Style Files: Harry Styles Named Fashion Icon by BFA
Last night (December 2) at the British Fashion Awards, One Direction’s Harry Styles — wearing Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane — walked away with the title of British Style Icon, besting world-wide fashion icons and fellow nominees Kate Moss, Kate Middleton, Cara Delevingne, Carey Mulligan and David Beckham.
With a list of that caliber, Styles’ win has been received with a bit of an eyebrow raise — does he really have better style than those boldfaced fashion names?
One thing is for certain: Styles has been making overtures to the fashion world. He was seen at various shows during London Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2014 roll out, including a front row spot at Burberry, which was awarded BFA’s Menswear Designer of the Year last night.
Below is his brief acceptance speech, including a cheeky jab at presenter Alexa Chung who expressed some surprise when announcing his win.
