British Fashion Awards – The best Looks and how to get them.

December 1st, 2011


The cream of the fashion glitterati turned out in force on Monday for the British fashion awards. Sarah Burton won a well deserved award for Best British Designer, with Victoria Beckham cementing her fashion status with her award for designer brand. My favourite shoe lady Charlotte Dellal won British Accessories award for her fantastic designers for Charlotte Olympia, and saw no less than Samantha Cameron sporting her red heels. But of course, what we really want to know is ‘what did everyone wear?’. Here are my favourite looks from the night.

The ever-chic Victoria Beckham kept it simple with a self designed dress. I loved the pleated skirt, but think  this would’ve looked better with a slight draping to the neckline.

Alexa Chung won the British style award for the second year running and looked wonderful in a Christopher Kane beaded dress. My one question was is Alexa related to Claudia Winkleman, because they seem to be morphing into one another?

British Fashion legend Kate Moss looked incredible in an unusual mesh/fishnet style dress.  This look could’ve been quite goth looking, but with the use of glossy hair and make-up, this became a very high maintenance look. I just bow to her impeccable taste.

Another Kate, this time Ms Hudson, also added high-octane glamour to the proceedings in a beautiful black asymmetrical dress by Stella McCartney. There is only one word to describe this dress, HOLLYWOOD.

With my current obsession with all things 1920s, I was always going to love Georgia May Jagger’s flapper inspired dress by Julien MacDonald. But what I really loved was the colour pop of the green shoes. Definitely a look to try yourself.

One of my best dressed on the night was Charlotte Dellal, who stuck to her vintage glamour style in a black sequinned dress. This was exquisite in its own right, but when teamed with red and gold accessories, it was raised to a whole different level.
