Angela Scanlon and Laura Whitmore fly Irish flag at British Fashion Awards

The Irish were out in force at the annual British Fashion Awards in London last night and their looks did not disappoint!

Yes, the 2022 BFA saw celebrities pull out all the stops in the name of couture for one of the most anticipated moments of the global fashion calendar.

The event itself celebrates fashion at the intersection of culture and is a global entertainment platform for brands, creatives, designers, artists, and tastemakers who come together to celebrate the industry.

Of course, the Irish ladies did us more than proud as they hit the red carpet at The Royal Albert Hall.

First up we have the beautiful Angela Scanlon, who wore a silk organza open-heart dress with a gingham puff sleeve shirt from Irish designer Simone Rocha.

Styling the look with a pair of pearl earrings from her own jewellery brand, frkl and a matching micro perspex pearl egg bag, also from Rocha, Angela finished it all off with a pair of festive burgundy platform heels.

Fellow Irish presenter, Laura Whitmore also looked every bit as stylish as she wore a design from Irish-born art director and celebrity stylist Graham Cruz.

Styled by Emma Lane, the presenter paired the ‘Tiger’ bodice with flattering cigarette trousers and a pair of strappy black heels, while the chunky gold rings and earrings lent an edgy finish to the otherwise sophisticated look.

Finally, Irish actress Niamh Algar went with a daring, off-beat movement for the evening as she rocked a playful cut-out ensemble.

The BAFTA-nominated actress opted for an all-black dress with a plunging neckline and accessorised with leather opera gloves followed by patent black chunky Mary Jane heels.

While many opted for the out-of-the-box approach, such as our gorgeous Irish gals, celebrities such as Florence Pugh, Naomi Campbell and Irish writer Sinead Burke kept it classic with their timeless silhouettes.
