Who is Adut Akech? Meet the 18-year-old up against Bella Hadid for Model of the Year

Who: Adwoa Aboah
Wearing: A sparkly jumpsuit by Emerging Talent winner Michael Halpern and a metallic hair turban.

Who: Adwoa Aboah
Our thoughts: We’re so pleased to see the Model of the Year winner make a statement in something fun (and festive). Not forgetting that her choice of turban is reminiscent of her #NewVogue December cover, perhaps her biggest modelling moment the year.

Who: Kaia Gerber

Who: Kaia Gerber
Wearing: A frilly cut-out Ralph & Russo skirt and top combo.
Our thoughts: In was an elegant look for the model who made her show season debut in September for the spring summer 2018 shows.

Who: Jourdan Dunn

Who: Jourdan Dunn
Wearing: A bright orange dress with a high thigh split.
Our thoughts: This dress was a gorgeous colour on Jourdan and we adore her new hairdo.

Who: Hailey Baldwin

Who: Hailey Baldwin
Wearing: A Topshop mini dress.
Our thoughts: Hailey sticks to her formulaic short dress, legs out. We think maybe the mini dress is a little too plain for the Fashion Awards, never mind how amazing she looks.

Who: Selena Gomez

Who: Selena Gomez
Wearing: A frill and lace mix Coach dress.
Our thoughts: Selena worked rock’n’roll bride vibes in this off-white Coach dress. In what could have strayed into overly girly, Selena toughened up with some white lace-up boots.

Who: Ashley Graham

Who: Ashley Graham
Wearing: A Vivienne Westwood, one-shoulder cocktail dress.
Our thoughts: The power of the LBD was clear as Ashley oozed sex appeal in this vintage-style black dress. Dressed up with just some diamonds around her neck.

Who: Karlie Kloss

Who: Karlie Kloss
Wearing: A Vivienne Westwood Couture red gown.
Our thoughts: We’d just about become accustomed to seeing Karlie Kloss in solely sparkly underwear after months of Victoria’s Secret prep, so this ultra glam, floor-length gown made for a pleasant change.

Who: Maisie Williams

Who: Maisie Williams
Wearing: A patterned, green dress by Coach with a sheer top.
Our thoughts: We’re glad Maisie stuck to her cute, quirky style in this number. It’s very Maisie.

Who: Irina Shayk

Who: Irina Shayk
Wearing: A silver, white mix Atelier Versace dress with a thigh split.
Our thoughts: The supermodel let the incredible dress do the talking wearing it with minimal jewellery and just some strappy, silver heels. We’re fans.

Who: Stella Maxwell

Who: Stella Maxwell
Wearing: A Versace tuxedo dress with decorative boots.
Our thoughts: The Victoria’s Secret angel tapped into the growing tuxedo dress trend, keeping it interesting with the addition of the thigh-high boots.

Who: Naomi Campbell

Who: Naomi Campbell
Wearing: A velvet, Azzedine Alaïa dress with a pleated bottom.
Our thoughts: Naomi paid tribute to the late designer Alaïa, who acted as a mentor and father figure to Campbell throughout her life, who died in November 2017.

Who: Suki Waterhouse

Who: Suki Waterhouse
Wearing: A full Masion Margiela look comprised of an embellished playsuit under a sheer dress and gold cowboy boots.
Our thoughts: It’s a hard look to pull off, so we applaud Suki for being brave with this one, we just wish she’d swapped the gold boots with a pair of chic heels.

Who: Alexa Chung

Who: Alexa Chung
Wearing: A custom Alexa Chung baby blue gown.
Our thoughts: The dress was an excellent advert for her own brand. It was a pretty look which she took to high fashion heights with the addition of black, satin jewelled ankle boots.

Who: Pink

Who: Pink
Wearing: A floor-length black gown with gold details.
Our thoughts: The singer looked quietly cool in this velvet dress and blue jacket. It has Christmas vibes written all over it.

Who: Zendaya

Who: Zendaya
Wearing: Elie Saab with heeled sandals by Loribu.
Our thoughts: Zendaya stayed true to her fun style and penchant for switching up her hair on the red carpet. We like this combo.

Who: Rita Ora

Who: Rita Ora
Wearing: A vintage, Versace chainmail dress.
Our thoughts: Not dissimilar to the dress Cindy Crawford wore recently the Supers reunion on the Versace catwalk, Rita looked incredible.

Who: Winnie Harlow

Who: Winnie Harlow
Wearing: A fluffy Brandon Maxwell sweater, a pale green skirt and Louboutin heels.
Our thoughts: Winnie looked incredible, we just hope she wasn’t hot in that fluffy sweater…

Who: Halima Aden

Who: Halima Aden
Wearing: The model wore a full look by Topshop.
Our thoughts: Halima looked lovely in a black, patent skirt with black boots.

Who: Izabel Goulat

Who: Izabel Goulat
Wearing: A backless, gold Julien Macdonald dress.
Our thoughts: You really can’t go wrong in Julien Macdonald if you want to bring the simultaneous sex appeal and glitz, so Izabel got this just right.

Who: Georgia May Jagger

Who: Georgia May Jagger
Wearing: A custom Matty Bovan dress
Our thoughts: Sorry, Georgia but you are much, MUCH cooler than this dress.

Who: Leomie Anderson

Who: Leomie Anderson
Wearing: A sequined floral mini dress with white boots.
Our thoughts: Leomie showed us the cool way to wear sequins: short and toughened up with white boots.

Who: FKA twigs

Who: FKA twigs
Wearing: A patterned Versace gown.
Our thoughts: The singer was probably one of the only people in the room who could have rocked one of Versace’s iconic Baroque prints well.
