British Fashion Award Nominees and Why We Love Them, Part 1

Try using the arrow keys

Tomorrow at midnight, voting closes for the British Fashion Awards, which honor "an individual who most embodies the spirit of British fashion and is an international ambassador for London as a leading creative fashion capital." Britain has an incredibly stylish past, characterized by, oh, the Beatles in their skinny suits, Vivienne Westwood and her safety pins, and a little thing called the invention of the miniskirt.

Even if you're not a Brit yourself, you can still vote! And vote you should, or at least gaze adoringly over the deserving nominees, stopping occasionally to shake your fists at the heavens, because Alexa Chung didn't make it onto the list.
