The British Fashion Awards 2015 November 26 2015
It was time for Britain’s annual celebration of fashion on Monday at the London Coliseum, as celebrities and designers took to the red carpet to honour the best of British style. Following on from last year’s ceremony, creative director Sherene Robson joined the prestigious audience, beautifully accompanied by the yellow Sophy clutch. The 2015 ceremony was as glamorous as ever; this week we catch up with Sherene to find out how her experience compared with last years. Plus we take a look at our favourite handbags from the red carpet and talk about all the highlights from the ceremony including this year’s winners.
A new experience
Sherene moved a balcony lower this year, taking her place closer to the stage and seating area below. Her position itself was also far more central within the theatre, giving her a much clearer view than last year. This allowed her to be more involved with what was happening. A highlight for Sherene was when Anna Wintour gave a speech preceding Karl Lagerfeld’s lifetime achievement award (you can see the video below). She felt especially inspired by the story of Karl.
The evening was fantastic with many talking points, but here are just a few special moments.
Anna Wintour gave an inspiring speech (video below) before awarding Karl Lagerfield his lifetime achievement award. It was a reminder of what a great personality Karl has and how deserving he is of the award for his continuous contributions to the fashion world.
Lady Gaga wore a stand-out Tom Ford embroidered red hexagon dress with laser-cut detailing for the red carpet. The dress was specially made for her by the designer and she later accepted the award for Red Carpet Design on his behalf. In our opinion, it was easily the best dress of the evening!
Our picks from the Red Carpet
Speaking of the best dress of the evening, we also kept our eyes peeled for some of the finest handbags worn at this year’s ceremony.
Olga Kurylenko looked glamorous in a Dolce & Gabbana dress, teaming it perfectly with this contemporary clutch by Charlotte Olympia, who later took the award for Accessory Designer.
Emma Watson looked classy as always in a Misha Nonoo jumpsuit, Dior coat, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Anya Hindmarch clutch.
We really loved the colour and texture of this Louboutin clutch worn by Anna Kendrick, paired with Victoria Beckham and Louboutin shoes.
