Britains got style..
The British fashion awards are always an inspirational event- from the winners and their achievements to the red carpet and the outfits.. This year did not disappoint.. Tabitha Simmons - winner of the Emerging Talent Award for Accessories and Keira Smith Alexa Chung in 'those' Charlotte Olympia cat face pumps and Christopher Kane Spring/Summer 2012- The embellished top and slip bottom make for the perfect SS coupling. Tali Lennox in Metallic Mulberry- A good maxi is like a good friend, you may not see them all the time but when you do its like no time has passed at all! Poppy Delevingne wearing spring/summer 2012 Matthew Williamson- just look at that detailing, it has a distinctively Navajo feeling coupled with fresh nudes and lemon pallet- this is simply divine Samantha Cameron in Statement Charlotte Olympia heels and Olivia Palmero in Matthew Williamson and Topshop heels - LOVE these little numbers and they're only £75- love frugal fashion! Doing it for the boys... James Long and Henry Holland.. look at those fabulous loafers!! The more than worthy winners, noted for their outstanding contribution to British fashion included: Sarah Burton- Designer of the year- an accolade I feel was bestowed upon her due to her seamless move into creative director of Alexander McQueen. Victoria Beckham- Designer brand of the year- Say what you will about Victoria Beckham but the gal knows how to throw together a dress! She understands the importance of the female form and how to not over sexualise it. Stella McCartney- Red carpet- Her designs are just flawless and made for the likes of premiers and Gala's Alexa Chung- British Style- This is a no brainer really, 'The Chung' as I now like to refer to her, single handedly sparked an army of 'shaggy Ombre bob's' the country over and made 'preppy' cool again, all the while maintaining her quirky cool. Cannot get mad with that! Full list of winners are here
