Last night's British Fashion Awards in London celebrated and honored U.K. design talent. The parade of fabulous looks from winners and guests alike showcased both local and international labels.

Alexa Chung, the newly crowned British Style award recipient, showed off her quirky sense of style in a powder-pink Chanel dress with feathered embellishments from Spring-Summer 2011, which she paired with black platform sandals, polka-dot tights and black Chanel bag, while fellow winner Lara Stone (named Model of the Year) also stuck to a pale palette in her white Calvin Klein dress.

Naomi Campbell was honored for accomplishments in her 25-year-career with a Special Recognition trophy and paid tribute to her late friend Alexander McQueen (who was posthumously honored by the British Fashion Council) in a dramatic black velvet and sheer chiffon dress with regal jeweled embellishments and a fur stole, designed by McQueen Creative Director Sarah Burton.

Others who opted to stay on the dark side were model Daisy Lowe, who glittered in a black Elie Saab gown; Twiggy, who wore a black tutu skirt with a gray wrap jacket; Samantha Cameron, who wore a cap-sleeve belted black dress by Osman Yousefzada; Victoria Beckham, who showed off her legs with a thigh-high slit black gown of her own design; and Designer of the Year winner Phoebe Philo, who wore a chic black jumpsuit and blazer from her latest Céline collection.
