Organisers of Scotland’s most high profile celebration of fashion and style have announced the shortlist for the event’s 7th annual Scottish Fashion Awards ‘Fashion Icon Award’ which are to be held at the Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow, Scotland on 11th June.
Now a firm fixture on Swarovski’s International Red Carpet Calendar, which includes The Golden Globes, The Oscars, Cannes Film Festival and The Scottish Fashion Awards, the event will welcome a host of celebrities and fashion stars to the tartan red carpet this June, flying in from around the world and none more exciting than these fashion icon nominees.
The shortlist reflects a diverse range of Scottish celebrities who have a unique sense of style, with a mixture of faces from the worlds of music, fashion, television and film.
Founder and producer of the event Tessa Hartmann said: “We love this category as it’s designed as a bit of fun to get the public involved. The rest of the judging is a very serious business and is carried out by our esteemed panel but with this category Scotland can get involved and vote for their favourite and most stylish fashion icon.
“What I would say is that for us, style isn’t just about the end look or the cost or the brand that you’re wearing, it’s about how you carry yourself, how you put it together and indeed if you can pull it off! This year we have an eclectic mix of Hollywood stars like Gerard Butler and Tilda Swinton to rising star Louise Linton, who quite literally took everyone’s breath away last year on our red carpet wearing Ralph Lauren couture. Then we have the edgy musicians like Barrie James O’Neal, Emile Sande and Calvin Harris who simply from their success through their art forms become intrinsically stylish and uber cool. People respond to different looks, and want to emulate them not just for what they are wearing but because they admire their art and therefore their look. We also have Tammy, Chris Kane’s sister and muse whom just throw’s an effortless, individual style together, nothing contrived – of course with that wardrobe access who wouldn’t! Also for the first time we have a nominee in 2 categories – Tali Lennox. We couldn’t leave her out as she’s as stylish off the catwalk at fashion parties as she is on it. Her ‘out and about’ individual style is almost as exciting as her catwalk look and is the talk of endless fashion diary columnists, so just had to be in there. New names to the fold are Iain De Caestecker and Emun Elliott who are rising stars of television and film and handsome Scotsmen too.
