Faces of British fashion unveiled
Ahead of its event next month, Clothes Show London has listed a number of definitive style icons of the 20th century, with many proving to have an "enduring legacy" on the British fashion industry.

The "resounding icon" of the 1990s was Kate Moss, whose embrace of socks, leggings and tights over the years has propelled legwear to new heights in the industry.

Additionally, Madonna was named the 1980s Material Girl, with Debbie Harry of rock band Blondie stealing the show when it came to the great trends of the 1970s.

Going even further back, Bridget Bardot, Audrey Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich claimed the 60s, 50s and 40s between them.

Recently, Kate Moss attended the launch of Topshop in New York City, turning out in a green flowing split-leg dress with a well-chosen pair of tights to complete the outfit.
