Italian designer Valentino Garavani, known to the world simply as Valentino, was honoured with this year's outstanding achievement award. Founder of the eponymous brand, the 91-year-old has dressed the rich and famous, created a business empire and introduced a new colour to the fashion world, the so-called "Valentino Red".

American Paloma Elsesser was named model of the year, while Edward Enninful, the outgoing editor-in-chief of British Vogue, received the Trailblazer Award.

The 2023 edition of the award show was hosted by British television presenter Maya Jama and musician Kojey Radical and featured a performance by singer Sam Smith.

Stars attending the event also included actors Gwyneth Paltrow, Tessa Thompson and Pamela Anderson and model Kate Moss.

The show is a fundraiser for the British Fashion Council (BFC) Foundation which focuses on supporting the growth and success of the UK's fashion industry.
