The nominees are in and the lucky individuals have been named! Victoria Beckham, Sarah Burton (Alexander McQueen) and Christopher Bailey (Burberry) are among the designers leading the nominations for the 2013 British Fashion Awards announced earlier this morning. Now, don’t get us wrong, we love our fashion here at Modelinia, but it’s the “Model of the Year” nominees that we truly have our eye on!
As expected, the British Fashion Council chose three models majorly in the press right now to fill this year’s nominee slots, including Edie Campabell, Sam Rollinson and last year’s “Model of the Year” winner, Cara Delevingne! The trio are already well-known for their runway work, appearing together in shows for Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, and Bailey among others, as well as their prolific Vogue credits— Cara and Edit have both scored covers with the glossy in the past year. As for their campaign work, Cara boasts such partnerships with Fendi, DKNY, Mulberry and YSL Beauty to name a few, while Edie remains a muse to Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen. Same, who made her ad debut only last season, has quickly caught fire among designers, earning feature campaigns with Valentino, Sonia Rykiel, Kurt Geiger and Isabel Marant for H&M this season alone.
Meanwhile, supermodel extraordinaire Kate Moss is rumored to be in the lead for this year’s one-off award for Outstanding Achievement, which will be selected by the BFC press committee that night. Kate is no doubt at the top of her modeling game as of late, appearing in campaigns for Versace and Stuart Weitzman, landing the cover of Playboy’s anniversary issue, earning a spot on Vogue UK’s masthead and returning to Topshop for the release of her 15th Kate Moss x Topshop collection.
Look forward to the announcement of the winner on Monday, December 2nd at the London Coliseum. Good luck to all of the gorgeous model nominees!
