While the Met Gala, famously held on the first Monday in May, is dubbed the Super Bowl of fashion, in the same vein, another Monday evening soirée serves as the playoffs: The Fashion Awards. Every year since 1989, on the first Monday in December, the celebrity set and tastemakers jet off to London’s Royal Albert Hall to honor the industry’s most ground-breaking creatives. At this year’s presentation, Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen’s former creative director, Jonathan Anderson, creative director at LOEWE, and Valentino Garavani were just a few of the major honorees. Before heading into the Dec. 4 ceremony, the star-studded guest list walked the red carpet in looks ranging from fresh-off-the-runway Spring/Summer 2024 pieces to archival designs sourced for one night only — all in the name of paying homage to their favorite designers.

Ahead of joining Gwyneth Paltrow and more Valentino brand ambassadors at the label’s private table inside, Anne Hathaway gave her cream gown a moment on the red carpet. The stunning piece was chosen directly from the atelier’s Spring/Summer 1993 collection. Shortly after Hathaway’s show-stopping arrival, Amal Clooney arrived in a sequin Versace maxi dress — a surprisingly glitzy choice given Clooney’s penchant for quiet luxury styles at previous Hollywood events. Another notable look? Suki Waterhouse’s holiday party-ready tulle gown, which flaunted her growing baby bump ever so slightly.

And that’s not all. Ahead, check out the best celebrity moments from The 2023 Fashion Awards. They’re sure to tide you over until May.
