The British Fashion Awards are now over for another year. The ceremony, which was held in London on Monday 2nd December, saw a star-studded guest list arrive in a range of weird and wonderful outfits.
Daniel Lee, designer for Italian fashion brand Bottega Vaneta, managed to scoop up all three of the accolades that he was nominated for, including Accessories Designer of the Year, Womenswear Designer of the Year and Designer of the Year with the company picking up Brand of the Year.

Other winners included Rihanna’s fashion brand, Fenty, for the Urban Luxe category, Naomi Campbell for Fashion Icon, Adut Akech for Model of the Year and Giorgio Armani for Outstanding Achievement.
But, of course, the most important and exciting part for us fashionistas is what everyone was wearing on the red carpet, so we’ve picked out some of our favourite looks from the night to share with you all.
Rihanna at the 2019 British Fashion Awards
As always, the singer, actress and businesswoman looked absolutely amazing in a teal coloured combination and we would expect nothing less from her. Her outfit was designed by her own fashion house, Fenty, which was only founded earlier this year and has already received so much praise. She finished off the look with some stunning pieces of jewellery from Boghossian.
Cate Blanchett at the 2019 British Fashion Awards
As expected, Cate looked magnificently elegant in her Giorgio Armani gown. The sage green colour complemented the actress perfectly and the ruffled sleeves provide the dress with that extra bit of glamour, without taking away from Cate’s usual angelic look.
Naomi Campbell at the 2019 British Fashion Awards
If there’s anyone who can pull off a sheer dress like this, it’s Naomi Campbell. The model looked amazing in the black and gold detailed Alexander McQueen dress, complemented with matching statement heels and jewellery. From the way she looks in this dress, you would never guess that she was approaching the big 5-0.
Jourdan Dunn at the 2019 British Fashion Awards
Jourdan, who was the first black model to walk in a Prada runway show in over a decade, looked stunning in this Vivienne Westwood creation for Flannels. The silhouette showed off her tiny little waist perfectly and the colour of the dress, combined with the red lip, gave us total Christmassy vibes.
Poppy Delevigne at the 2019 British Fashion Awards
Model and actress Poppy, who is the older sister of famous model Cara Delevigne, managed to keep her look simple, yet extravagant at the same time. Anyone who can pull off a white marshmallow coloured, tiered ruffle dress automatically goes up in the fashion rankings. Unfortunately, the designer of her dress is unknown.
Lady Amelia Windsor

As if being a relative of the Royal family wasn’t enough, fashion model Amelia, also got to wear this gorgeous silver-pink gown from Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini to the awards ceremony. The black belt is the perfect contrast to the otherwise angelic and light colour scheme, and the neckline is so flattering on Amelia, we love it.
Chiara Ferragni at the 2019 British Fashion Awards
Fashion blogger, designer and influencer Chiara, looked amazing in this emerald green dotted dress. The floaty material of the dress, alongside the accessories and make-up look, give us ultimate boho queen vibes whilst still managing to make the ensemble classy. The perfect combo.
