2010 British Fashion Awards

Victoria Beckham was uber-chic at the British Fashion Awards, held at London’s Savoy Hotel, in a long black gown of her own design. The super-star, who was flying solo at the event, lost out on the Designer Brand gong, but enjoyed the evening nonetheless, rubbing shoulders with Samantha Cameron, who has just joined the British Fashion Council as an advisor for London Fashion Week as of next February. The PM’s wife, who recently gave birth to daughter Florence, looked fantastic in a waist-cinching Osman Yousefzada gown.

Naomi Campbell was stunning at the British Fashion Awards in a carpet-sweeping gown by Alexander McQuuen. The supermodel was awarded the Special Recognition gong at the ceremony, paid homage to the late designer, and thanked the label’s current creative director, Sarah Burton, for making not one but two dresses for her to choose from for the evening. On stage Naomi also thanked her mother, Valerie Campbell, and her partner, Vladimir Doronin, for putting up with a “wild woman”.

A Chanel-clad Alexa Chung was crowned Style Icon of the Year at the British Fashion Awards. The gong, which was the only one to be voted on by the British public, was presented to her by singer Bryan Ferry.

Despite the bitter cold, a host of celebrities were spotted in spring/summer outfits, including Thandie Newton who teamed a pretty printed Peter Pilotto frock with super-strappy sandals by Nicholas Kirkwood (who picked up the Accessory Designer of the Year award).

German supermodel Claudia Schiffer rocked an asymmetrical cream, bronze and navy frock by London-based designer Mary Katrantzou. Opaque black leggings and snug black booties helped her to brave the wintery weather in style.

Emma Roberts showed a surprising bit of skin in a flirty little Julien MacDonald frock. She kept the short length from looking too scandalous with opauq black tights and black peep-toe ankle booties.

Calvin Klein spokesmodel Lara Stone slipped into a starkly minimalist little white sheath and black strappy sandals. It would have been nice to see her command the red carpet in an over-the-top ballgown, but she looked fantastic all the same.

Gilrs Aloud songstress Kimberley Walsh was pretty in a tulip-shaped frock in stand-out gold.

Daisy Lowe chose a dramatic black gown by Elie Saab and a matching Gothic-style clutch by Pauric Sweeney for the British Fashion Awards, where she caught up with A-list pals Alexa Chung and Alice Dellal.

Kelly Brook probably felt a night has been wasted if she hasn’t turned some heads. It’s safe to say this over-the-top corseted Suzie Turner dress did the trick, especially paired with those Jimmy Choo cage heels.

You may not recognise model Lily Cole because she’s had a hair makeover. The leggy lady has gone from flame red to chocolate brown and looked super-sexy at the event in a Julien Macdonald dress.

Professional ballroom dancer Kristina Rhianoff opted to wear a whimsical feathered strapless dress that might have been nabbed from the Dancing With the Stars wardrobe department.

Erin O’Connor looked retro chic in this lovely print chiffon cocktail dress. She also showed off a classic French twist.

Look Of The Week : Kim, Natalie, Carla, Halle, Hathaway, Alexa, Sarah, Beyonce, Krysten, Emma, Anna, Bosworth

Kim Kardashian chose a ’50s-chic gray sheath (with lace kick pleats!) for a Charmin event.  The entrepreneur should always go retro! The waist-enhancing silhouette of the vintage-inspired number flattered the multitasking star’s timeless curves.

Trust Natalie Portman to pick the simplest outfit and still be the most stunning gal in the room. The Black Swan actress was gorgeous in a little white dress with sheer overlay and bow-tie belt by John Galliano for Dior. A pair of black pumps and smokey eyes was all she needed to add drama to the look.

Carla Gugino stole the spotlight at the Los Angeles premiere of her new action flick, “Faster,” in a shimmering Georges Chakra Couture dress, matching peep-toes, and chic updo. Her outfit is a bit bold (and a bit ice skater-y), but we love it!

Looking radiant in white, Halle Berry wore a stunning strapless dress by Pamella Roland to the screening of her new movie Frankie & Alice in New York. A simple diamond jewel encrusted clutch was all she needed to add a little gleaming polish to her look.

Across the country at NYC’s highly anticipated “Love and Other Drugs” premiere, Anne Hathaway took a risk (that totally paid off) by sporting this cute ‘n’ classy Valentino dress, which featured floral tiers and an enchanting bow.

Alexa Chung moved away from her trademark preppy chic look for something a little more ladylike as she attended the premiere of Love and Other Drugs. The gorgeous Brit worked a delicate silk floral Valentino SS11 dress teamed with pretty bow heels.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s a lady who knows what works for her, and a tailored Vivienne Westwood dress was as-ever, the perfect fit at the Harry Potter New York premiere. The Sex and the City star elongated her petite frame with a volumous skirt that sits just above the ankle to reveal her eye-catching Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

Beyonce Knowles looked marvelous in a beaded Naeem Khan mini and strappy Christian Louboutins while attending a screening of “I Am … World Tour” at the School of Visual Arts Theater in New York City.

Krysten Ritter arrived at the BFF & Baby wrap party in Hollywood wearing a silver sequin Reem Acra mini, Carla Amorim earrings and Valentino peep-toe heels.

Emma Roberts tucked her Zac Posen printed blouse into a pair of the designer’s form-fitting bondage pants for the boutiques.com launch party in New York.

Anna Paquin certainly knows how to work a body-con dress. The True Blood star, who hit the Boutique.com party with her new hubby and co-star Stephen Moyer, looked sexy in a fitted metallic shift with geometric panels. She teamed it with Hollywood’s go-to shoe: the peep-toe Louboutins.

Kate Bosworth got all dolled up for the premiere of The Warrior’s Way in a white floral and lace frock by Erdem and dainty, strappy metallic sandals. The fashion-savvy actress matched the retro-chic look with a vintage-style hairdo and a bright pink lipstick. Swoon!

Lauren Lo Bosworth wore black pants and a white lace top. She completed her look with Round-toe black pumps and bold red lips.

The Secret Life of The American Teenager star India Eisley appropriately dolled up for the 2010 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party.

Sarah Hyland went for a sexier look in this cute cross-shouldered Ani black dress and Bebe heels.

Actress Cassie Scerbo looked so hot in this white Michael Kors mini dress with matching metallic pumps.

Chelsea Staub wore a cute silver silk metallic mesh strapless cocktail dress by Ronald Abdala for the event. Chelsea completed her look with Aldo heels, Le Vain jewels and a Kotur clutch.
