We all knew that Westwood would introduce a frisson of the unexpected into this evening's proceedings. But even we couldn't have imagined that Westwood, in the course of presenting Emma Watson with the Style Icon Award, would utter the immortal phrase: "Who's Emma Watson?"
True, Westwood was leveraging her prior lack of familiarity with Watson for comic effect. And true, when Watson came onstage (wearing Hakaan), once she got past the, "I don't know what to say to that" stage of things, she was equally glowing toward Westwood.
So no harm, no foul. And respect, to two of the most original characters in London fashion. Well done. And congratulations to all the winners.More
