For 2016, the British Fashion Council decided to introduce some change for their annual award ceremony, where the crème de le crème of the style set are honored for one evening in London. One of the most monumental alterations was the name of the event, formerly known as the British Fashion Awards. Now, they are simply known as the Fashion Awards, offering a more international point of view on the celebratory event. Of course the red carpet reflected that moniker change in the best way possible: by turning up the sartorial heat.

Hosted at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the likes of Kate Moss, Jared Leto, Karlie Kloss, Alessandro Michele, Donatella Versace, Mario Testino, Gigi Hadid and Salma Hayek made their presence known on the red carpet. Even Marilyn Manson made an appearance, as a presenter of the International Urban Luxury award to Vetements. The brand’s co-founder, Demna Gvasalia, who is also the creative director at Balenciaga, made a rare appearance at the award ceremony, though he made a subdued statement with his own outfit choice of a black turtleneck, a black baseball cap and white sneakers. Though, perhaps proving his brilliance, his normcore getup still looked good next to the black tie clad crowd.
