It was a glamorous culmination of flamboyant celebrity and fashionable insider at the British Fashion Awards in London. A cross-section of the best-dressed and most influential style icons in the world, they flocked to the red carpet in their Sunday (or Monday) best with exuberant glee. And whilst the fashion was compelling (read: that sequin-saturated Halpern), beauty also rose to the occasion.
The perfect inspo for the festive season, here are our favourite beauty looks from the British Fashion Awards.
Adwoa Aboah’s Lilac Lids + Copper Turban
The winner of the prestigious Model Of The Year, Aboah – forever fearless when it comes to beauty – wore a generous wash of lavender across the entire lid, whilst hair was dripping in rose gold; all wrapped up in a metallic copper turban.
Hailey Baldwin’s Side Slick Bun + exaggerated smoky eye
Baldwin’s bun was perfectly executed: super side-swept, heavily slicked, and bedazzled with a sparkly hair accoutrement, her eyes also made a statement; deeply shadowed in purples and browns.
Zendaya’s Platinum Pixie + Strong Brow
A chameleon when it comes to her hair, Zendaya joined the cropped crew; sporting a very short, very blonde, Beatnik crop; offsetting the platinum with a strong, dark brow.
Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert’s Polished ’50s Beehive + Winged Line
The Italian style queen rarely puts a fashionable foot wrong (as too her beauty), and we love this elevated rendition of the ’50s beehive and cat-eye combo, igniting some serious Sophia Loren vibes.
Selena Gomez’s Wet Textured Strands + Brick Red Lip
Hung Vanngo opted for a brick red lip (the soon to be released Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon in “Burn Notice” to be exact) and kept it tonal on eyes, washing a rust shadow upwards towards the brow bone. Whilst hairstylist, Marissa Marino, textured hair with a scrunchy wave and wet down accordingly.
