The British Fashion Council nominated eighteen people for this year's British Style Icon prize. That list includes Victoria Beckham, Florence Welch, last year's winner Alexa Chung, and Lara Stone among others — but not, the Telegraph notes, the Duchess of Cambridge. Write-in candidates are allowed, though, and there's already a campaign to see Kate win via public support without an official spot on the ballot's lineup.
