Last night played host to one of the biggest events in the fashion calendar, The Fashion Awards 2016

Recently re-branded to its new title from The British Fashion Awards, the ceremony gives recognition to the best British and international creative talents within the industry. 

The event also attracts some of the biggest celebs from all over the globe, with the likes of Gigi Hadid, Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung attending this year's celebration.

This year, our very own Simone Rocha took home the coveted accolade of Best British Womenswear Designer

The Dublin born designer, and daughter of John Rocha, took home the award honouring "a British ready-to-wear designer who has been instrumental in leading women’s fashion in the past year."

While most fashion fans were delighted that an Irish woman won the coveted prize, some were quick to point out the fact that the prize was for a British designer.

However, Simone enjoys both Irish and British citizenship .

Derry native Jonathan Anderson was also nominated for best British women's wear designer, for his brand J.W Anderson.

The Northern Irish designer established J.W. Anderson in 2008 and shot to fame thanks to a triumphant first show at London Fashion Week and a hotly anticipated collaboration with Topshop.

The creative was also nominated for Best International Accessories Designer for his work with luxury brand Loewe.



If there was ever a time to don your most satirically sound ensemble, the British Fashion Awards would be it. 

As with any red carpet event, the style stakes were high, and the celebrities came out in force to prove their fashion credentials. 

There were plenty of head turning looks that got everyone talking, from feathered pyjama sets to skin tight silk. 

1. Alexa Chung

Hailed as the reigning queen of British style and the ultimate fashion it-girl, Alexa's look didn't disappoint on the red carpet.

This pale yellow, feathered pyjama set hit all of this years trend marks, and the designer's slicked back hair and signature red lip complemented the busy ensemble.

2. Gigi Hadid

Model-of-the-moment Gigi showed off her killer figure in a skin tight Versace Couture silk jumpsuit. 

The star won the International model of the year award, which isn't surprising after modelling for major brands like Victoria's Secret, Tommy Hilfiger and Vogue this year.

3. Karlie Kloss

This Victoria's Secret veteran cut a striking figure in this slim line, cut-out column dress.

While Karlie was absent from this year's show due to other commitments, the model channelled the VS vibe with glamorous waves and a cat eye flick. 

4. Mollie King

The ex-Saturdays star opted for a boho-chic look in a floral gown, but kept things autumnal with a berry toned palette. 

She also opted for a very Sienna Miller-esque beauty look, with loose waves and natural make up. 

5. Pixie Lott

Songstress Pixie went bold in the novelty accessory of the season, the tiara. 

Keeping with the regal vibe, Pixie added her tiara to a Dolce & Gabbana fishtail style gown which wouldn't look out of place at a royal ball.

6. Jenna Coleman

Actress and ex-flame of Prince Harry Jenna Coleman stunned in this Erdem Spring 2017 ruffed dress.

Her dramatic liner and loose up-do contrasted perfectly with the prim and proper gown.

7. Lily Donaldson

The Victoria's Secret models were out in force at the British Fashion Awards,  and Lily Donaldson made a statement in a sheer, dusty pink dress.

The full length gown featured intricate embroidered and showed off her model figure to perfection. 

8. Olivia Palermo

The ultimate fashion insider Olivia Palermo rocked an oriental inspired dress, accentuating the statement look with maximalist earrings and an iridescent clutch.

We're not totally sold on those shoes though.
