It was a night of high fashion at the Elle Style Awards in London With Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry stealing the show.... She was crowned a fashion icon and thanked her punk influences for defining her style. (Soundbite) Blondie musician, Debbie Harry, saying (English): "Coming from the punk point of view, which was very deconstructionist, destructive, and disrespectful, you have to find something in yourself that makes you feel a lot of different ways. So you have to feel beautiful, you have to feel comfortable. I have to feel sexy." Harry playfully wore a crown designed by Vivienne Westwood while posing for photos. She also wore a Westwood red suit with a black-and-white shirt and shoes. Blondie is expected to release their 11th studio album 'Pollinator' in May. (Soundbite) Blondie musician, Debbie Harry, saying (English): "It's about the ongoing circle of culture and how we all feed off of each other and I think at this particular time...it's very important to remember that. That we're all so deeply connected," Other stars to attend on the night included the actress Thandie Newton.... Anya Taylor-Joy also walked the red carpet.
