Lily Cole has won the H&M Conscious Award at the ELLE Style Awards 2015, which was presented to her by actress Olivia Wilde.
The award, which recognises support for humanitarian and environmental causes, couldn’t be more fitting for the model, actress and environmentalist, who has long been a campaigner for ethical fashion.
After a hugely successful career as a model, which started at the age of 14, Lily went on to start her own ethical knitwear label, The North Circular, in 2009, launched a limited-edition jewellery line aimed at saving the Amazon rainforest, and became an ambassador for children’s charity Global Angels.
All this while reading History Of Art at Cambridge, for which she gained first-class honours. Brains, beauty and now an ELLE Style Award… Apparently you can have it all.
