Emma Watson wins British Fashion Award for British style

The British Fashion Awards, honoring famous figures in the fashion world, took place Monday at the London Coliseum, and Emma Watson was among the fewer than 20 companies and individuals recognized. The 24-year-old received the British Style Award, presented by One Direction’s Harry Styles.

As defined by the British Fashion Awards,

The British Style Award recognises an individual who most embodies the spirit of British fashion and is an international ambassador for London as a leading creative fashion capital.

As we previously reported, Watson was up against many British celebrities, including Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, and fellow Harry Potter alum Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort). While the British Fashion Council selected the nominees and winners of the other awards, the winner of this particular award was voted on by the public in an online poll.

Other winners included Victoria Beckham for Brand, Louis Vuitton for Creative Campaign, and Cara Delevingne for Model. For a complete list, click here. Congratulations, Emma! What do you think of Emma’s style? Do you agree that she should have won the British Style Award?
