British Fashion Awards 2013

Fashion kings and queens were out in full force on Monday 2nd December to recognise the work of their colleagues in the fashion industry at the 2013 British Fashion Awards. image

A good awards-ceremony presenter must dance the fine line between affectionate irreverence and downright offensiveness. After David Walliams was struck down by a back injury, the BFC press-ganged Jack Whitehall into the job, and he was excellent. Whitehall had clearly boned up on his tricky fashion pronounciations (acing Loewe, and only stumbling slightly on Katrantzou) and he handled Stella Tennant’s reluctance to tackle the autocue with aplomb. But he pitched a few hardballs, too, telling Burberry’s double award-winner Chistopher Bailey, “I have one of their trenches – it is the best coat I have ever been flashing in.”

Our very own Harry Styles walked away with this year’s British Style Award after Alexa Chung held on to it so tightly all these years.

Alexa Chung opted for a white number teamed with black strapped heels and grey clutch
