Fashionistas! Stylish fingers on buzzers; the British Style Council have announced its nominees for this year’s British Style Awards and it’s down to the style-savvy British public to decide who scoops the prestigious gong.
The effortlessly gorgeous Mrs George Clooney is the bookies favourite with odds of 5/2 to enter the A-list fash pack with a classy-chic bang and take the title, with supermodel/human Cara Delevingne (and her coveted eyebrows) hot on Amal’s Louboutin heels at 7/2.
The classically dapper David Beckham not surprisingly features with the bookies placing him 10/1 along with debonair Idris Elba at 8/1.
Dolce and Gabanna poster boy David Gandy is third favourite to represent stylish gents everywhere – now although there’s no doubt he showcases a pair of M&S pants like no other, we’re a little confused about this one. We’re pretty sure Mr Gandy rarely wears clothes (pants aside), which is precisely what makes him so great…

A few weeks ago we brought you the techy yet mega-stylish Gillan Make-up bag/phone charger, perfect for carrying the gorgeous make-up of an Emerald Goddess. So we thought it only fair to feature something for the sartorial gents and Emerald Prince’s among you!
The new SEYVR Power Saver Wallet, with a built-in 1400mAh Li-Po battery and integrated cables will charge your phone, on the go, anytime you need it – never run out of power again!
SEYVR is available in two versions (Apple Lightning and MicroUSB) and is made of the finest quality, reinforced cowhide leather in two classically stylish colour options – black and brown.
SEYVR has four card slots and a section ideal for the professional man wishing to keep all his notes and receipts safe and on his person.
The dapper SEYVR wallet really is the perfect wonder-gadget and power accessory – totally handy, utterly practical, with serious fashion credentials at the same time!
We would say it makes the perfect Christmas gift, but who can wait until then?!
