See the most stylish star's from fashion's biggest night out

Forget the Oscars and Grammys. If there’s one red carpet on which the stars really need to put their best foot forward it’s the Fashion Awards. With an haute couture-level guestlist second only to that of the Met Gala, this annual gathering of the world’s most glamorous trendsetters is not the time to be throwing on an old LBD and calling it a day.

Happily, this year’s attendees got the memo – turning out in showstopping looks worthy of the event’s Royal Albert Hall location. Here are some of our favourites from the Fashion Awards 2022.

Florence Pugh and Pierpaolo Piccioli in Valentino

Pierpaolo Piccioli, who scooped the Designer of the Year prize at the Fashion Awards 2022, and actress Florence Pugh both chose Valentino for the designer’s big night. While Piccioli opted for classic tuxedo (worn, in signature style, with white trainers), Pugh donned a custom backless gown in a season red silk paired with Tiffany & Co jewellery.

Naomi Campbell in Valentino

The Crown star Elizabeth Debicki gave a lesson in baordroom to bar style in a Dior shirt and tailored black trousers paired with Jimmy Choo shoes. The actress also chose fine jewellery from Dior’s Bagatelle and Rose des Vents collections.

The evening’s host, actress Jodie Turner-Smith, turned heads in an eye-popping neon green gown and matching cape from Gucci. This was far from Turner-Smith’s only jaw-dropping looking of the night, with her onstage duties also seeing her outfitted in midnight blue Richard Quinn, sequinned 16Arlington and a cacophony of white frills by Robert Wun.

Model Winnie Harlow opted for a sculptural gown by haute couture designer Iris Van Herpen for the awards ceremony. The bold look was accompanied, not by statement jewellery, but by a daring hair style reaching all the way to Harlow’s ankles.

Munroe Bergdorf in Tony Ward Couture

Practical for a sit-down dinner and awards ceremony? No. Completely fabulous? Absolutely. Munroe Bergdorf donned acres of Tony Ward Couture ruffles attached to a shimmering blue and silver gown for the Fashion Awards 2022.

Laura Carmichael

Forget what we said about LBDs: when they’re as good as Laura Carmichael’s we’re all for them. The Downton star’s velvet look blended chic cutouts with a sweeping train and diamond jewellery for good measure.
