Hooray for fashionistas! They dare challenge fashion convention and make us look forward to their red carpet photos because we know they won’t be wearing the usual glam gowns.
See which celebs rose to the occasion at the UK Elle Style Awards last Tuesday.
Now you know why there were named Elle’s Style Icons of 2010. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen rocked their own signature styles—Mary-Kate in her gothic Lanvin, and Ashley in her tulle couture Christian Lacroix.
I don’t know who else could rock a python-print gown. Supermodel Naomi Campbell, 39, was given the Outstanding Contribution award for her 25-year career and her work as global patron of The White Ribbon Alliance (WRA), which promotes safe pregnancy. She dedicated her award to the late Alexander McQueen.
