Where: British Fashion Awards 2013

As anyone who ventured near twitter, Facebook, Instagram, the internet in general or various daily papers last week will know, Monday played host to a rather special event… The 25th annual British Fashion Awards! I love an awards ceremony and with Kate Moss, Harry Styles and Miuccia Prada on the eclectic nominee list, these were set to be the big cheese. Such a fabulous event requires a fabulous dress and obviously I was determined to wear British. Thanks to the fact that everything seems to be moving in warp speed at the moment (seriously, wasn’t it September just yesterday!?) I left my outfit selection a little late. Queue extreme panic and very nearly emptying my bank balance on one of Net-a-Porter’s frocks. Luckily the wonderful Matthew Williamson came to my rescue and not only did I stave off bankruptcy for a while (or at least, until the Manolo Blahnik sample sale) I got to wear one of the most gorgeous gowns I’ve ever laid eyes on. Between the rich, cobalt blue lace, dazzling embellishment and full skater skirt I did’t think I could have been more enamoured with this ensemble. Then I added a glittery Anya Hindmarch clutch and very nearly passed out from sheer, sartorial excitement.

All the goss from the awards themselves coming soon! For now, what do you think of my look?

Love Ella. X
