MEGHAN MARKLE MAKES SURPRISE APPEARANCE AT THE FASHION AWARDS 2018!

The British Fashion Council celebrated its annual Fashion Awards on December 10 in London. With Swarovski as a partner, the Royal Albert Hall provided the perfect backdrop for one of fashion’s biggest nights. And the stars of fashion and entertainment did not disappoint, pulling out all the stops on the red carpet.

Looking glamorous on the red carpet were Kaia Gerber in Alexander McQueen, Kendall Jenner in Julien MacDonald, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Rosamund Pike in Givenchy, Cindy Crawford, Jourdan Dunn, Victoria Beckham, Winnie Harlow, Kate Moss, Sara Sampaio, Naomi Watts, Uma Thurman, Lana Del Rey, Vivienne Westwood, Doutzen Kroes, Carey Mulligan, Eva Herzigova, Martha Hunt, Alexa Chung, Paloma Faith, Jenna Coleman, Olivia Palermo, Rita Ora, Poppy Delevingne and Ellie Goulding.

The night’s biggest surprise came when the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, walked onto the stage to present a completely surprised Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy with the Womenswear Designer of the Year award. Markle looked radiant in sleek, black gown, clasping her hands over her growing baby bump. The pair share a special bond as Keller designed Markle’s wedding dress.

Other notable winners were Gerber for Model of the Year, Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli for Designer of the Year, Off-White nabbing the Urban Luxe award, Miuccia Prada for Outstanding Achievement and Vivienne Westwood for Swarovski’s Positive Change award.
