Alexa Chung wore a yellow Prada pyjama suit and added black accessories to match. We couldn’t help but fall in love with her non cliche red carpet look and loved the oriental print mixed with the feather detail.

Olivia Palermo also went for an embroidered look with a cold shoulder slit dress designed by Peter Pilotto. The fact she added an element of gold to contrast the colours in the dress is darish but works for the evening look.

Lady Gaga looked stunning and sophisticated in an all black gown by Brandon Maxwell. The accentuated back detail gave it that much needed edge to transform it into the perfect black dress for such an event.

Jean Campbell wore an edgy see through Alexander McQueen dress. With the bralet detail and corset waist we couldn’t help but feel the Victorian goth elements in it…especially paired with black biker boots and a choker.

Lily Donaldson wore this Burberry see through pink dress. She kept it plain and simple with the jewellery and again took on a Victorian element… do we see this trend coming back around for next year?

Gigi Hadid (winner of the International model award) wore an Atelier Versace jumpsuit with an extended train and asymmetric neckline. The choker detail kept it modern and the silver shoes took on part of the metallic trend.

David Gandy mixed velvet along with a classic suit style trouser and looked the part with a contrasting waistcoat paired underneath.

Douglas Booth kept his suit plain and simple with a finely textured jacket to create a subtle impact.

Dougie Poynter definitely mastered the velvet trend in true form by wearing a matching velvet slim fit suit. Velvet is definitely a key material for evening-wear this AW!
