Why the A-listers love LFW

Celebrating British fashion

MOST POPULAR

The ELLE Style Awards offered the perfect ending to a fantastic week that celebrated British fashion.

Designers, actors and models came together over Möet and macaroni cheese (uh huh) to celebrate the achievements of fellow fashion lovers. Here are their Fashion Week highlights…

Erin O’Connor on the Giles Deacon show:

‘I’m sort of on maternity leave but I did see the Giles show at London Fashion Week and and my heart started pounding because I thought, this reminds me of what we’re all about. We don’t care what the rest of the world thinks, we don’t follow, we instigate. It was so raw it was beautiful. Not many places have that tradition and sense of edge. It’s quite anarchic.’

Jourdan Dunn:

‘There are a few essentials I need to get through fashion week. My phone because I’m always talking to my mum. Beyoncé is on my iPod non-stop - it motivates me in so many ways. And food. If I don’t eat I’m such a miserable cow and no one wants to be around me.’

Poppy Delevingne on supporting her sister:

‘I’m really lucky because I wasn’t meant to be here for fashion week but I didn’t want to miss Cara’s Mulberry launch – I wanted to be there as her big sister and show my support.’

Amber Le Bon:

‘I adored the Peter Pilotto show; Antonio Beradi was fantastic as well. I’ve been super lucky this season, getting to walk and go to loads of shows. And everyone’s been very relaxed and lovely. It’s all fantastic!’

Christopher Kane on attending other shows:

‘I always go and see Versace because obviously Donatella’s a really dear friend and supporter. I go and see Dior: I met Raf a few years ago and we became really good friends so it’s always nice to see his show.’

Arizona Muse:

‘I went to see the Hunter show, that was amazing, the models walked through water, it was really good fun. Favourite show of all time? I was in a Louis Vuitton show when we came up in elevators, that was dramatic.’

Emilia Wickstead on what gets her through fashion week:

‘My baby. She comes into work and keeps me going. When I'm having a flat moment I see her and can’t be upset about anything. She’s enough of a boost, it puts everything into perspective.’

Laura Mvula:

‘It was very surreal at the Hunter show as I was sat next to Stella McCartney. I thought I’d be with Katy B and Jessie J as part of the music crowd.'
