Just as London’s high-octane Christmas decorations and displays begin to adorn the streets, the city’s best and brightest style stars are rivaling those twinkling displays on the 2022 British Fashion Award red carpet. Indeed, in case you needed any further proof that December is a season of giving, Britain’s established and emerging style savants have bestowed the best early Christmas gift we fashion fanatics could’ve ever dreamed of: a flawless red carpet.
With the British Fashion Awards celebrating the achievements and accolades of international and local designers, creatives, models, and fashion tastemakers, the red carpet can only be described as a testament to what makes British fashion so enviable, durable, and downright covetable.
Much like those luminous festive displays taking over the front windows of boutiques and lining the streets, the celebrity style set is clearly sartorially referencing one of the most special times of the year in London, dressing in tinsel or tulle, adorned in sparkles or silver wrapping and even covered up with trains like the bow on a Christmas present.
All things gilded and glistening will be one of the biggest trends for the upcoming Summer 2023 season, and here on the red carpet, we have definitive proof. Suki Waterhouse is emulating an almost modern-day Joan Of Arc in a metallic Alexander Vauthier FW22 Couture gown that is giving off the appearance of armor.
Continuing the silver battle-ready theme is Naomi Campbell, who opted for a reflective Valentino gown. Featuring a dainty cut-out and cape, Naomi is clearly commanding the red carpet with a dress worthy of her stature and legacy.
Below, are the best looks from the 2022 British Fashion Awards red carpet.
