Bad and British: We Showed Up and Out at the British Fashion Awards 2017—Including The Glow Up’s Veronica Webb

Last night, our very own editor and supermodel Veronica Webb took to the stage of the British Fashion Awards 2017 to honor her mentor and friend, iconic fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa, who died suddenly last month at the age of 77. Dressed in—of course—Alaïa, she was joined by both fashion-industry friends and fellow models and muses Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour and Dilone. The emotional tribute brought tears to the audience assembled in London’s Royal Albert Hall.

But the night was equally joyful, and we were well-represented by the likes of FKA Twigs, Jourdan Dunn, Zendaya and Model of the Year Adwoa Aboah (beating out both Hadid sisters), among others. Since we couldn’t all take a skip across the pond this year, The Glow Up compiled this handy slideshow of the most melanated highlights of the evening. Cheers, mates!
