The 2017 Fashion Awards Nominees Are Here (and It’s Gigi vs. Bella Again) – InStyle
Mark your calendars for December 4—In partnership with Swarovski, The British Fashion Council’s Fashion Awards (formerly known as the British Fashion Awards) is coming back to London’s Royal Albert Hall for a night of high glamour and fashion glitterati as notable names in the industry are honored. (If you missed last year’s, that’s where we saw Gigi Hadid looking like that—below—and Nicole Scherzinger in the most naked dress ever.)
While this year’s roster of nominees is nothing short of the usual suspects (Alessandro Michele, Raf Simons, Jonathan Anderson), we’re also seeing some new first-time noms: Kaia Gerber (barely 16 and fresh off her first fashion week, might we add), FENTY PUMA by Rihanna, Off-White, and more. Other notable nominations? Let’s talk about the Model of the Year category, wherein both Gigi and Bella are pitted against each other (again) alongside Adwoa Aboah and Winnie Harlow.
