Gwendoline Christie and Jourdan Dunn win British Fashion Awards

Published 24/11/2015

Entertainment and fashion elite celebrated the rag trade at the 2015 British Fashion Awards.

Actress Gwendoline Christie and model Jourdan Dunn were honoured for their style sense at the 2015 British Fashion Awards on Monday night (23Nov15).

The Game of Thrones regular was named the Red Carpet Ambassador while Dunn was presented with the Model of the Year prize by Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing.

Singer FKA Twigs was handed the Fashion Innovator award, and credited her family for inspiring her to be different.

"I would like to dedicate this award to my mum because she used to make clothes that she wore and I wore," actor Robert Pattinson's girlfriend told the audience during her acceptance speech. "I used to want just a tenth of what she had - people used to look at her in the street because she looked so great. My nanna inspired us to be brave and creative and beautiful on the inside as well as the outside."

Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld was also feted with the Outstanding Achievement award for his years of contributions to the fashion industry. The prize was presented to him by last year's (14) recipient, Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Among the other attendees at the star-studded event, which was held at the London Coliseum, were Victoria and David Beckham, Rita Ora, Lady Gaga, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Orlando Bloom, Kate Beckinsale, and singer Lily Allen
