Pop star Dua Lipa, presenter Maya Jama, and actor Gabrielle Union were some of the stars that walked the 2021 Fashion Awards red carpet. Hosted at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Monday, 29 Nov., this year’s event celebrates fashion at the intersection of entertainment and culture.
Fashion designers, models, and industry insiders kicked off the festive season in slinky, cutout dresses, luxe silk-satin gowns with corset bodices, strapless dresses with opera gloves, jacquard and jewel-covered suits. We’re especially loving the mermaid-hem gowns worn by Addison Rae, Munroe Bergdorf, and emerging models Deba Hekmat and Mona Tougaard. As the occasion is hosted by Billy Porter, we expect to see some truly dramatic outfits — and we weren’t disappointed by Porter’s custom Richard Quinn one-piece and a colourful Roksanda outfit. Ahead of the ceremony, red carpet presenter and comedian Elsa Majimbo asked Porter why he is hosting the 2021 Fashion Awards. Porter shared that he is committed to the de-gendering of fashion and diversity in all areas, and feels responsible for elevating young designers and new voices.
