best dressed: british fashion awards

the coolest dresses from kate, alexa, rita and more.

One of the most awesome parts about the British Fashion Awards--besides the clothes, of course--is the fact that it takes place a full six hours ahead. This means that everyone stuck stateside can see all the action, even if we're still at work/school/wherever.

Tonight's event, which honors the major designers, models, and industry figures, brought out all the style heavyweights in some seriously cool dresses.

From up-and-comers like Edie Campbell (who snagged Model of the Year) to Kate Moss (who picked up the Special Recognition Award and really needs no introduction), the red carpet was packed with all of our It Brit favorites. 

So who looked the best? Click through our picks below, and keep checking back--we'll keep adding more as images roll in! Getting nighttime style inspiration while it's bright outside might be our new favorite thing.
