The event follows a 2020 awards ceremony that was a virtual award show due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and comes as many countries around the world announce new travel restrictions because of the Omicron variant. It also takes place one day after the devastating news of trailblazing designer Virgil Abloh’s death. Virgil Abloh died of cancer at the age of 41.

The Fashion Awards 2021 is hosted by the British Fashion Council, and the fashion industry has stepped out on the red carpet.

Billy Porter wore a glittering patterned silver and black gown with sculpted shoulders, designed by Richard Quinn. Billy Porter was on hosting duty for the night. He entered with dancers around him, and the dancers were in floral print and black PVC outfits. Some of them are entirely incognito in head-to-jumpsuits, which is also designed by Richard Quinn.

Other celebrities also wore Quinn tonight include Priyanka Chopra, Hailee Steinfeld, and Addison Rae. Priyanka Chopra Jonas wore a billowing floral gown, Addison Rae in a black and pink mermaid gown, and Hailee in a shimmering backless polka-dot jumpsuit.

Gabrielle Union arrived in a chartreuse Valentino couture gown, Tom Daley wore a deep blue asymmetrical suit designed by Christian Dior, and Maria wore a dress made from recycled Evian bottles designed by Iris van Herpen.

“British fashion to me…there’s something so incredible when you can go from street style to formal style, unique style, gender-bending queer style,” said Daley on the red carpet in a TikTok video posted by The Fashion Awards, which live-streamed the red carpet on the social media platform. “Just to represent yourself however you want to, wear what what you want and just be you, and I love that about London (especially).”

Demi Moore and Lily Allen arrived in Fendi, with Moore posing in her ombre knee-length gown next to Fendi creative director Kim Jones. Tonight, Jones is up for Designer of the Year, competing for the title with Jonathan Anderson, Prada, Demna Gvasalia, and Daniel Lee co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons.
