It’s the biggest night on the British style agenda.

And with the most stylish descending on London for a night of excellent outfits and bestowing honours to the industry’s highest achievers, Winnie Harlow made sure to make her presence known.

The model, 27, oozed confidence on the red carpet as she pulled off a daring three piece look. 

Appeal: Winnie Harlow commanded attention in a quirky padded quilted co-ord at the 2021 Fashion Awards at Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday 

With the cold London temperatures, it could be said that Winnie was dressed for the occasion. 

In one of the most striking looks of the night, the Canadian model wore a padded three-piece outfit whilst showing off her taut abs.

 She accessorised the matching skirt and top with some padded sleeves, while donning some chic opera style gloves underneath. 

She accessorised the adventurous look with a show-stopping, snake design necklace and wore her long dark tresses in loose curls.

Known as the British Fashion Awards up until 2016, the ceremony was first established in 1989 in a bid to spotlight those making impressive contributions to the industry.

Monday’s event will no doubt pay tribute to Winnie’s late friend Virgil Abloh, who made history as Louis Vuitton’s first black artistic director, and died at age 41 on Sunday following a secret years-long battle with cancer.

The supermodel took to her instagram on Sunday to pay tribute to the designer.

She wrote: ‘RIP to a visionary and icon who helped push the culture forward and open doors and break down barriers, who made the next generation of creatives feel anything is possible.’

The fashion prodigy, a married father of two, had been privately battling a rare form of the disease called cardiac angiosarcoma. He was diagnosed with the condition in 2019.   

‘We are all shocked by this terrible news, Virgil was not only a genius designer, a visionary, he was also a man with a beautiful soul and great wisdom,’ Louis Vuitton executive director Bernault Arnault said in a statement.

‘The LVMH family joins me in this moment of great sorrow and we are all thinking of his loved ones after the passing of their husband, their brother, their father or their friend.’

His designs were supported by the biggest names in fashion, including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Hailey Bieber, and sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid. 

Italian fashion designer Donatella Versace was among many celebrities to pay tribute to Abloh on Sunday. 

‘Virgil, I am lost for words,’ Versace said on Instagram. ‘The world has lost a fashion superstar. An innovator. A creator for the history books. I am thinking of all your loved ones on this tragic day.’

Born on September 30, 1980 in Chicago, the first generation Ghanaian-American Abloh was raised in Rockford, Illinois.

Although having no formal training as a designer, he learned from his mother who was a seamstress.

On the day he graduated from engineering school in 2003, Virgil met Kanye West and went on to meet his then-manager John Monopoly. He became a member of his creative team soon after.

Abloh began his fashion career in 2009 when he interned for Fendi in Rome, Italy, alongside West, Vogue reported. 

The pair became fast friends and collaborators, and in 2010 Abloh was named creative director of West’s creative content agency Donda.

News of his death sent shockwaves rippling through social media, where celebrities and fans expressed shock and offered condolences.
