It was not easy for Sarah Burton to take after Alexander McQueen in the brand founded by the genius deceased designer but she was able to cope and went even further. She designed the wedding dress for Duchess of Cambridge, the dress that was named one of the most beautiful wedding dresses of all ever created. So, the title that Harper’s Bazaar gave to Burton yesterday – Designer of the Year – was well-deserved.
Sarah Burton received the accolade at the Harper’s Bazaar’s Women of the Year Awards that was held at Claridge’s Hotel in London last night. She wasn’t the only one to be honored at the event. Designer Tom Ford was presented with Man in a Woman’s World award. Actress Helena Bonham-Carter took the Role Model of the Year prize. Models Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigova, Yasmin Le Bon and Cindy Crawford all were named Fashion Icons of the Year.
