Clearly you've never seen their clothes in person.
I'm actually hoping they'll pull a surprise win. Proenza's done great work these last few years and Marc, for better or worse, keeps the entire fashion world on it's toes, but they've both been honored plenty, and frankly, after the few collections they've shown recently, I think the Olsen's deserve it.
Count me among those shocked by Johnny Depp. I love him, and he does have his own look, but I'd hardly count him as a style icon. Besides, he doesn't really strike me as someone who cares all that much about fashion or style.

FASHION ICON AWARD
Which one of these do not belong with the others...?
Why, it's Rei, of course. A true icon amongst mere commoners.
And Johnny Depp a "fashion icon"...? The list of stylish individuals sure are barren. It's so transparent the fashion industry is desperate to promote and champion some random anti-fashion personality-- as they've proven with the one-noters Juergen Teller and Terry Richardson. But Depp as a "fashion icon" is so laughable: Oh look, he's always wearing a bit of beads and crap with his suits in that disheveled manner that's been the uniform for most art students-- so he must be stylish...
Anyway, yay for Rei.
