The Ultimate Style Icon: Congratulations Kelly Osbourne!

October 31, 2012 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

If you could choose one lady to be your ultimate style icon, who would it be?

Although it’s a tough decision, a few people do spring to mind straight away. Like Kourtney Kardashian; we love the way she switches up her style from bohemian chic to daily glamour and loves to experiment with chunky jewellery and bright accessories.

Another lady who has our heads turning with every outfit is Beyonce. Since giving birth to her daughter we have seen a different side to her wardrobe. We’re seeing more cute daywear instead of her showbiz stagewear. Bright blazers, spiked moccasins, leather trousers and funky glasses are just a few of what she’s been working with.

But there are a great number of ladies to look to for inspiration, which is why it’s such a huge deal and achievement to British fashion designer Kelly Osbourne who has just been awarded with the Ultimate Style Icon award.

Here’s what Kelly had to say about being honoured with her latest title. “I used to look like s**t,” she said. “I never thought I’d get a style award. Cosmo putting me on their cover a couple of years ago did wonders for my self-esteem.

“When you see yourself in a certain way, that never changes. People who are larger and then they lose weight, you will always look in the mirror and see yourself as that fat girl, no matter what happens.

“I don’t see myself as that anymore, but I did used to be 65lbs heavier. I get this every single day ‘Oh you’re so much skinnier and prettier in real life,’ I’m like, oh thank you, what a compliment. Have a nice day.”
