The Wimbledon champion joins Gerard Butler and Julianne Moore in running for 'bit of fun' award.
Wimbledon tennis champion Andy Murray joins Hollywood stars including Gerard Butler and Julianne Moore on the shortlist for the Scottish Fashion Icon award, it has been announced.
A total of 13 famous names from film, television, music, sport and modelling are in the running for the accolade at this year's Scottish Fashion Awards.
The public can vote for their winner, who will be crowned at the awards ceremony to be held at Dover House in London on October 9.
Founder and producer of the event, Tessa Hartmann, said: "The icon list always prompts much debate but it's a bit of fun on top of what is otherwise a very serious awards presentation.
"I think it's wonderful to have so many stylish Scots working in the world of sports, acting, singing and entertainment and we applaud their own unique identity.
"We are huge fans of Andy Murray, who has literally had a fashion make-over in the last 18 months, and given his win at Wimbledon this year and his excellent sartorial choices, he very much deserves to be in there."
She added: "It's about celebrating the wide spectrum of stylish Scots we have and there's an impressive collection in there; some whose unconventional but strong looks make the grade to the classic old school glamour from Louise Linton and indeed new entrant this year, Hollywood actress Julianne Moore, whose mother is Scottish and has just taken British citizenship.
"Then there's the young, edgy and adventurous fashionistas who are seen regularly in the weekly fashion glossies, like Nina Nesbitt and now Gemma Cairney.
"We love this category as it's designed as a bit of fun to get the public involved.
"The rest of the judging is a very serious business and is carried out by our esteemed panel but with this category everyone can get involved and vote for their favourite and most stylish fashion icon."
The event, which will be hosted by MTV's Laura Whitmore, also includes a further 13 categories judged by a panel of leading industry figures including Stella Tennant, Rankin, Dolly Jones, Colin McDowell, Sara Maino and Hilary Alexander.
The 2013 Scottish Fashion Icon nominees are: Gemma Cairney, Thom Evans, Calvin Harris, Kirsty Hume, Andy Murray, James McAvoy, Julianne Moore, Amy Macdonald, Louise Linton, Karen Gillan, Gerard Butler, Nina Nesbitt and Emeli Sande.
