The latest lifestyle, fashion and travel trends
The great and the good of the fashion world descended in their droves upon London’s Royal Albert Hall tonight for the 2019 British Fashion Awards.
The annual event, which has been a hallmark of the fashion calendar since 1986, saw one stellar turn-out, with Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Julia Roberts among the sartorially on-the-money.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley graced the red carpet wearing a floor-length gold Bottega Veneta gown, which was custom-made for her by the brand's Creative Director, Daniel Lee.
The 32-year-old Devon native is regularly seen donning the brand - her Instagram is populated with images of her with their cult "Pouch" bag and pared-back heels, which have catapulted the Italian house into the spotlight.(Joel C Ryan/Invision/AP) This year the brand has been nominated for the coveted gong of Brand of the Year, while Lee has personally been nominated for three: accessories designer of the year, British womenswear designer of the year and overall designer of the year. Elsewhere, supermodel Naomi Campbell, who is being awarded this evening's Icon award, arrived donning a breathtaking Alexander McQueen gown, which she accessorised with heels and accessories also by the British fashion house. The gong of the best dressed attendee however would have to go to Julia Roberts who looked every inch the pretty woman as she arrived on the arm of Giorgio Armani, who will be honoured tonight with the prestigious prize for outstanding achievement. Roberts donned a two-piece which was adorned with tiny embellishments and stunning turquoise earrings. Sarah Burton OBE was also in attendance at this evening’s awards, as she is being honoured with the Trailblazer Award. The Trailblazer Award was introduced in 2018 and is one of the Special Recognition Awards, celebrating one whose work in the past year has been a game-changer and has significantly shaped the industry.
