Model of the Year: Lara stone

Lara Stone came out tops amongst the pretty faces. I really love her teeth.

Digital Innovation Award: Burberry

Burberry’s innovative digital marketing initiatives have definitely paid off. The brand has launched its A/W 2010 collection as an interactive, motion-responsive experience. Motion responsive images allow viewers to zoom in on a jacket or bag they've got their eye on or see the how the clothes move in virtual motion.

British Style Award: Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung has emerged as the style icon and international fashion ambassador of the UK, voted for by the British public. Rightfully awarded, if I should say so myself. Alexa Chung really embodies the essence of London and has exported that style by establishing herself as an international style icon.

Phoebe Philo takes the coveted prize this year.

Designer Brand of the Year: Mulberry

Mulberry edged out fellow nominee, Posh spice a.k.a. Victoria Beckham, to earn recognition as a British fashion label that has impacted the international fashion scene in the past year.
