ARTIST John Byrne was last night hailed the nation’s most stylish man – at 78.
The acclaimed artist and writer of the Slab Boys plays was one of the big winners at the Scottish Style Awards.
The glittering ceremony at the Kelvingrove art gallery, in Glasgow, celebrated the country’s most stylish celebrities.

He was hailed as “authentically and effortlessly cool” by judges as he was named Most Stylish Male ahead of nominees that included Outlander star Sam Heughan.
Mary McGowne, founder of the awards, said: “Once again, in this our 13th year, we have showcased the incredible style, creativity and individuality this country has to offer.
“It is a privilege to honour these amazing Scots, with so many of them flying in from across the globe to be with us.
“We are delighted the show enjoys such high levels of respect and support from the industry as we continue our quest to present the very best creative excellence.”
Edinburgh-born artist and film-maker Rachel Maclean – described by judges as “highbrow-meets-high-fashion” – was named the Most Stylish Female.
Other winners included musician Roisin Murphy, who was named Style Icon of the Year, while independent record store Rubadub won Tastemaker of the Year.
