Lessons in Hair and Makeup From the British Fashion Awards
Tuesday, 22 December 2015 | Admin
It’s the one night a year that the fashion world and its avid watchers absolutely live for. On Monday, November 23, the annual British Fashion Awards ceremony was held at the London Coliseum in Charing Cross. Today we look back at the best looks and share what we learnt.
Since 1989, the British Fashion Awards has been honouring the contributions that British designers, creative professionals and models to the global fashion scene. This year, there were 16 winners in categories for men’s wear, women’s wear, model of the year, red carpet design, and more.
Karl Lagerfeld received the Outstanding Achievement Award for his unparalleled contribution to the world of fashion, while Tom Ford, who was unable to attend, was honoured with the Red Carpet Designer of the Year Award. JW Anderson was voted both the menswear and womenswear designer of 2015, the first time that any designer has won both categories in a single night. Model of the Year went to Jourdan Dunn, whose career keeps ascending: when she scored the cover of British Vogue, she became the first black model to appear solo in that coveted spot in 12 years.
Those who were not able to attend the gala itself relished the red-carpet appearances from Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham, Liv Tyler, Kate Bosworth, and other luminaries. Not everyone could afford their designer apparel, but hair and makeup styles are always easy and affordable to copy, so here are some noteworthy red carpet looks.
The British Fashion Awards not only makes careers, it also sets hair and makeup trends. This year’s red carpet procession provided plenty of inspiration for the coming year.
