Vivienne Westwood presented Emma Watson with the Style Icon award at Elle’s Style Awards, even though she didn’t know who the actress was. Westwood, a legend within the fashion industry, was honest during the presentation of the award and admitted to the crowd that she was unaware of who Emma Watson was:
“It’s very self-indulgent of me because I was supposed to welcome and to announce the winner of the Style Icon — which I’m going to do — and I was given this text about a woman and how amazing she is, and yesterday I was asked, ‘This lady would like you to present if she wins.’ But I didn’t know who she was.”
Still, Watson took it all in stride and laughed off the embarrassing confession. She graciously accepted the award, demonstrating the poise this young style icon is known for.
