Last night’s British Fashion Awards saw a typically star-studded bevy of attendees descend on the London Coliseum, decked out to the nines in true award ceremony fashion.

The event itself was dominated by Loewe creative director J.W. Anderson – who picked up both men’s and womenswear awards for his eponymous label – while Karl Lagerfeld collected the Outstanding Achievement prize and FKA twigs was given the Fashion Innovator Award. Gucci’s Alessandro Michele, meanwhile, picked up the International Designer prize.

It wouldn’t be an award ceremony without a star-studded red carpet and a whole ton of celebrity peacocking, so below you’ll see the best sartorial maneuvers from the fashion world’s A-listers.

Head over to the British Fashion Awards website for the full list of winners.

How’s that for a power couple? Vogue‘s Anna Wintour and Chanel mastermind Karl Lagerfeld rocked up to the event in some pretty head-turning getups. Nice silver trench coat, Karl.

Superstar model/heartthrob Lucky Blue Smith and Lady Gaga both sported outfits from Tom Ford’s high-glamor mainline.

Gucci’s Alessandro Michele seemed determined to upend the fashion designers’ stereotypically modest uniforms, hitting the red carpet in an embroidered silk tuxedo from the luxury house’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection.

FKA twigs picked up her Fashion Innovator Award in a suitably standout dress from Calvin Klein Collection’s Spring 2016 line.

Double-winning JW Anderson collected his prizes in a low-key outfit worthy of an avant-garde designer.

Fashion’s power couple – the Beckhams – showed their faces in standard award ceremony attire: tuxedos.

Dazed founder and all-round media mogul Jefferson Hack hit the ceremony in what appears to be a camo-patterned velvet suit, with actresses Kate Bosworth and Gwendoline Christie.
