Christopher Kane snuggled up with the one and only Donatella Versace after winning the 2013 British Fashion Award honor for Womenswear Designer of the Year.
Billion-dollar brand Burberry took home two honors at the evening's celebration. Newly-named CEO Christopher Bailey was on hand to receive the awards for Menswear Designer of the Year and Designer Brand of the Year.
Gwyneth Paltrow was Miuccia Prada's better half at the annual event, where the latter received International Designer of the Year for her work at namesake label Prada.
Nicholas Kirkwood took home the Accessory Designer of the Year award—his second in a row—for his eponymous shoe brand. Fifty Shades of Grey's newest addition, Rita Ora joined him to celebrate.
Irish designer Simone Rocha was applauded as the year's top Emerging Womenswear Designer, beating out her peers Thomas Tait and design duo Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida of Marques’Almeida.
On the menswear side of things, Agape Mdumulla and Sam Cotton of Agi & Sam also earned an Emerging Designer award following their first standalone show at London Fashion Week this year.
After receiving last year's Emerging Designer Award for Ready-to-Wear, J.W. Anderson ascended to BFA glory again, this year winning New Establishment Designer for his “ increasing stature on the international stage and ability to define the future of the fashion industry,” according to the awards council.
Move over Cara Delevingne! Leggy wonder Edie Campbell had a major model moment this year, starring in campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, and Lanvin; covering issues of British Vogue, i-D, and Vogue Italia; and reigning as fashion month's top muse after walking 21 shows including Alexander Wang, Burberry Prorsum, and Balenciaga.
Erdem Moralioğlu is adding another British Fashion Award to his name. After winning last year's New Establishment Award, he took this year's Red Carpet Award thanks to his glamorous clientele and A-list appeal.
Lady Amanda Harlech, who's worked alongside Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano, was given the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator due to her impact on the global fashion industry.
One Direction's Harry Styles beat out David Beckham, Kate Moss, and Cara Delevingne for the Style Icon award, the ceremony's only honor voted on by the public.
Kate Moss didn't leave the BFAs empty-handed though. Her 25 years as the modeling industry's queen of heroin chic were commemorated with a Special Recognition Award.
Also on hand to receive a Special Recognition Award was Suzy Menkes, whose quarter-century at the International New York Times has made her one of fashion's most respected figures.
Last, but not least, i-D Magazine founders Terry and Tricia Jones received the significant Outstanding Achievement in Fashion honor for their 30 years as vanguards of fashion, art, nightlife, and music's evolving culture.
