Last night, the who's who of the fashion world gathered at the Royal Albert Hall in London for the British Fashion Council's Fashion Awards 2018 (essentially the CFDA, but British). Models, celebrities, designers and even HRH Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, showed up to celebrate the talents of the fashion industry, and boy, did they have a lot to celebrate.
There were the people whom we already knew would be honoured at the glitzy event, like Miuccia Prada, who received the Outstanding Achievement Award, or Burberry collaborator Vivienne Westwood, now the proud owner of the Swarovski Award for Positive Change.
Then there were the winners of the competing categories, such as the Brand of the Year, which went to Gucci. (It's fairly easy to see how the brand behind everyone's favourite bag of 2018 nabbed the award.) Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli was the biggest winner of the night; the Italian designer was crowned with the prestigious title of Designer of the Year.
But perhaps the moment that stood out the most for the evening's guests was when Givenchy Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller took to the stage to receive the award for Womenswear Designer of the Year — from a pregnant, Givenchy-clad Princess Meghan Markle, no less.
