Jourdan Dunn Up for British Fashion Award

Nominees for the British Fashion Awards have been announced. Handed out by the British Fashion Council, these are like the U.K.’s version of our CFDA Awards. Except unlike the CFDAs, the BFAs include the always entertaining model category, which we’re especially excited about this year since Jourdan Dunn made the list! Agyness Deyn unsurprisingly accompanies her, but we’re guessing she’s just filler since she won last year and the BFC doesn’t often award the same person two years in a row. (Besides, it gives her a reason to show up on the red carpet in a crazy outfit the tabloids will talk about for months.) They’re also up against Lily Donaldson, who we’d say hasn’t created as much buzz as Jourdan, aside from that fun short-lived rumor about her dating Michael Phelps. The Brits restrained themselves from putting Kate Moss on the list this year, which we don’t mind since our tolerance for her is wearing thin with her newfound love for publicizing herself and all.

In the designer categories, Stella McCartney earned a nod for Red Carpet Designer, and Burberry’s Christopher Bailey nabbed one for menswear designer. For a full list of this year’s nominees, click on.
