The night’s big winner, British designer John Edwards of Florian London, scored the prize for Best Handbag in Overall Style and Design plus InStyle’s Audience Fan Favorite award, with 77,000-plus votes on InStyle.com. “In England, this is what we call a double whammy,” says Edwards’s wife, Tola Adeagbo, who accepted the award on his behalf.
