Last nights saw the likes of Victoria Beckham, Alexa Chung, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer join the line up for the British Fashion Awards 2010. Hosted by Claudia Winkleman at the Savoy Hotel in London, the ceremony saw the best in British and international fashion come together to celebrate a year of fabulousness.
Phoebe Philo, designer and creative director at Celine (and previously Chloe) won the award for Designer of the Year. Wearing a loose-fitting black jumpsuit with a chic, sharp-shouldered black blazer thrown over her shoulders, Phoebe proved that less can be more.
Alexa Chung accepted the award for ‘British Style’, and proved that she was deserving of the award by taking to the red carpet in a Chanel SS 2011 white dress with patterned opaque tights and black platform heels. Showcasing a new shorter hair style, Alexa looked effortlessly chic when she collected her award, which was voted for by the public.
‘Black is back’ was a theme on the red carpet for the awards, with guests such as Naomi Campbell, Lily Cole and Daisy Lowe appearing in head-to-toe black outfits and bringing a touch of goth to the ceremony. Taking it to a new extreme was model Lily Cole, famed for her long red hair, who showed up with a mane of jet black hair. A bit much, perhaps?
Among the other winners were Lara Stone, who won the ‘Model’ award for 2010, Mulberry who won the ‘Designer Brand’ award and the BFC (British Fashion Council) ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’ which went to the late and great Alexander McQueen. As a tribute to McQueen, the BFC put together the following video which you can watch HERE.
All in all, the British fashion awards proved to be one of the most fashionable nights of the year (naturally..) with appearances from some of the fashion industrys biggest names plus a range of celebrities in fabulous outfits.
