October 5, 2015

Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Awards took place on Oct. 23 in Beverly Hills, CA. This year's event honored former model and style icon, Iman, and fashion designer Missoni for their long time contributions to the industry.

“The City of Beverly Hills is pleased to honor Iman and Missoni with the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Barry Brucker. “Iman's influence in the fashion, philanthropic and entertainment sectors, coupled with Missoni's genius aesthetic and presence on Rodeo Drive, make them both highly deserving honorees.”

“What a privilege it is to honor Iman and Missoni, two of the most influential figures in fashion,” said Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Selection Committee Chairwoman Wanda McDaniel. “Iman has been the voice and role model for women around the world. Her philanthropic efforts for Save the Children and the crisis in East Africa have been an inspiration to us all.”

“Missoni is one of the symbols of Italian luxury,” said Peri Ellen Berne, Chairwoman of the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style. “The Missoni family has always amazed us with their beautiful color combinations woven throughout their signature zigzag patterns. These distinctive characteristics are present in their Ready to Wear collections for both men and women, as well as their home collections. This is what makes their creations a favorite among Hollywood's elite and socialites across the world.”

NBA baller Dwayne Wayde and actress Gabrielle Union were among the celebrity guests in attendance. Gabrielle brought out her yellow and orange tone with a floor-length color faded gown with sporty pocket details, by Missoni.
