Plus gorgeous looks from Halima Aden, Karlie Kloss, and more.
How do you make a red carpet statement when your name is Zendaya? Well, it’s all about a statement sleeve, a deep V neckline, and a beautifully ombre’d skirt, courtesy of Elie Saab.
The British Fashion Council’s Fashion Awards took place in London on Monday night, and by our reckoning, Zendaya was among the best dressed.
Her black and copper gown had the level of drama you’d want for an event like that, but it’s still sleek and lets Zendaya’s beauty speak for itself. Saab is truly one of Lebanon’s finest. Here’s a better look at the gown:
Another red carpet highlight? Hijabi supermodel Halima Aden.
We’re saving this picture for any time someone suggests modest fashion is boring. Look at that mix of textures, and the bold tomato red coat against the black. Inspired styling. She’s wearing Topshop.
Adwoa Aboah won the evening’s coveted model of the year title, and wore British designers Halpern to collect.
Karlie Kloss wore tomato-red Vivienne Westwood.
Versace were also very well represented at the event, with FKA Twigs, Jourdan Dunn, Stella Maxwell, Irina Shayk and Rita Ora all opting for designs from the Italian house. Our pick of the bunch is Ora’s high-sparkle vintage number.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath was a big winner on the awards front – she went home with the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator. Designer Stella McCartney was presented with a Special Recognition Award for Innovation, and Donatella Versace was given a Fashion Icon Award.
