Style inspiration: Edie Campbell
When discussing style inspiration, I usually focus on people around my own age and above. That’s not inverted ageism or anything, I realise that with fashion as with crossing the road, it’s important to look both ways. So, it was good to see Model of the Year, Edie Campbell opt for a spot of casual glamour at the British Fashion Awards last night. The beaded jacket, vest top and embellished jeans combination is a go-everywhere outfit, whatever your age. Though obviously, those of us who are not 23-year-old models would also wear a bra. And, I’m always impressed when someone turns up on the red carpet in flat shoes, even when it is a pair of scuffed up old lace-ups.
Edie Campbell is like a junior Stella Tennant, in sensible shoes. My favourite aristo-model was also looking pretty fabulous last night:
Delighted that i-D’ magazine’s Tricia and Terry Jones – together with the fabulous Suzy Menkes – all received outstanding achievement awards.
Thoughts on British Style Icon Harry Styles, anyone?
