Gwyneth Paltrow vs. Kate Moss: who was best dressed at British Fashion Awards 2013?
Last night, Britain’s most fashionably influential took over the London Coliseum for the British Fashion Awards 2013. A red carpet of elite wearing elite can only be expected at such an affair, but Kate Moss and Gwyneth Paltrow’s looks got our style radar beeping.
The ageless Moss, who was honoured with the Special Recognition award for 25 years in the industry, wore a Spring 2014 Alexander McQueen leather dress with a fur coat. The perforated effect and pleats added texture to the look that was accessorized with a studded clutch, red pout and black Louboutin heels.
Making an appearance to present the International Designer of the Year honour to Miuccia Prada, it’s no surprise that Paltrow chose from the designer’s collection. The dress, a plum and soft pink bodice with a black pleated skirt, was paired with strappy sandals that added to her signature long legs. Side-parted pin straight hair and a rosy lip made for her low-key beauty look.
Ah, to be a fly on the wall at this year’s annual event. With an exclusive guest list including designers Marc Jacobs and Giles Deacon, style stars like Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller, one can only dream. As shoulder’s rubbed and guests were treated to tapas, awards were presented to Christopher Kane for Designer of the Year in the Womenswear category while Burberry’s Christopher Bailey won the Menswear equivalent as well as the Designer Brand of the Year accolade. With some of the most sought after footwear on the runways and in-store, it’s no surprise that Nicholas Kirkwood took home the Accessory Designer of the Year award and just like Kate Moss, Suzy Menkes was honoured with a Special Recognition Award.
