Considering she's the woman responsible for making Céline the most coveted label out there and bringing luxe minimalism back into fashion, it's hardly surprising that Phoebe Philo took home the top honor, Designer of the Year, at last night's British Fashion Awards.
The ceremony was held at London's Savoy Hotel, with guests including Daisy Lowe, Yasmin Le Bon, Claudia Schiffer, Samantha Cameron, Thandie Newton, Daphne Guinness, Victoria Beckham, Emma Roberts and Bianca Jagger, who presented Philo with her prize, given to the designer who "has made a significant impact in the past year both in the U.K. and internationally."
Upon winning, Philo said, "It feels very meaningful... I'm very lucky," according to Grazia Daily.
Other winners of the evening include Lara Stone, crowned Model of the Year, Naomi Campbell, who was honored with a Special Recognition trophy to mark her 25-year-career, and Alexa Chung, who picked up the British Style Award.
Mulberry won the Designer Brand award, Burberry received the honor for Digital Innovation, Lady Gaga's stylist Nicola Formichetti took home the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator, E. Tautz's Patrick Grant won for Menswear, Nicholas Kirkwood won for Accessories, Meadham Kirchoff was awarded the prize for Emerging Talent Ready to Wear, and Husam el Odeh was the winner of the Emerging Talent Accessories Award.
