The annual British Fashion Awards took place on Monday evening and the 2018 ceremony had its glitziest attendee list yet with a host of designers, celebrities, models and fashion innovators attending the ceremony in the Royal Albert Hall in London. No stranger to the naked dress, Kendall Jenner wore an eye-catching, completely sheer gold dress by London Fashion Week designer Julien Macdonald (she gets extra points for braving the December weather in the barely-there gown!).  She set off a metallic trend on the carpet; model Jourdan Dunn wore an opulent black sequin gown with feather detail, Penelope Cruz wore a silver gown by Chanel and Naomi Harris cut a retro figure in an embellished mini dress.

It was also a night for stylish families. The Beckhams looked chic with David and son Brooklyn accompanying Victoria (who is up for British Womenswear Designer of the Year) who kept it stylish and sleek as ever in a classic halterneck gown from her spring/summer 2019 collection. And there’s more to this look than meets the eye; it’s actually a gown reimagined on top of a pair of the designer’s signature tailored trousers. The style debuted at her 10th-anniversary show during London Fashion Week back in September.

The Gerber family also looked perfectly coordinated on the carpet. Model Kaia Gerber also opted for a dress-and-trousers combo – her heavily adorned dress featured dramatic cut-outs to reveal trousers underneath. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley added some colour in a velvet multi-coloured Givenchy gown and cape while Alexa Chung wore a mustard gown of her own design.

Meghan Markle was a surprise guest on the night; the Duchess of Sussex, expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry in the spring, appeared on stage in a bespoke black Givenchy to celebrate Clare Waight Keller, the creative director of Givenchy who designed her wedding dress. She adorably cradled her growing baby bump throughout.

“It is such an honour to be here celebrating British fashion and British fashion designers in my new home of the UK,” she said.
