The British fashion awards took place on Monday 29th of November in London at the royal Albert hall. The fashion awards are Britain’s version of the Met Gala Ball which takes place earlier in the year at the metropolitan museum. Many know names in film and fashion attended the British fashion awards and with so many big stars and celebrity’s walking the carpet at the beginning of the fashion event there comes fashion flops and iconic looks. This years Fashion awards was hosted by Billy Porter, the king of the red-carpet. Billy porter has does everything but play it safe and ‘traditional’ on the carpet. Porter is always spotted with gowns, gilts and wings and without fail gives THE MOST on the carpet while blurring the dates lines between masculinity and femininity.
Starting with this year’s presenter, Billy ported was dressed a bold shoulder houndstooth Mid-axi dress designed by Richard Quinn, paired with vinal platform boots.
Richard Quinn dressed many celebrities this BFA. Quinn is a London fashion designer who is known for his Bold print designs covered in pattered rhinestones.
There is a theme with Quinn’s pieces on this year’s award red-carpet, Singer and actor Hailee Steinfeld was wearing a gorgeous black and silver poke-a-dot rhinestone catsuit paired with black simple stilettos.
Branching away from the monochrome looks, Lily Allen wore a power blue satin, suit style jumpsuit by Fendi.
Sequins where a reoccurring theme with this year’s British fashion award. Singer Charlie XCX was dressed in a stunning black cut out, one shoulder sequin gown with a high leg slit by Tommy Hilfiger.
Model Winnie Harlow wore a quilted puffer style co Ord with bold detachable sleeves, a custom piece by Montcer. The quilted clothing style has trickled along recent runways and now seems to be sported on the carpet, does this mean we will now begin to see quilted fashion, not just in coats on our High street?
