Style Off: WAGs At The British Fashion Awards
The British Fashion Awards were announced last night at the Savoy in London and with baby Harper (likely wearing solid gold pajamas) asleep upstairs and her parents in tow, Victoria Beckham accepted the award for Designer Brand of the Year. Victoria triumphed over Tom Ford, Stella McCartney, and Burberry to take home that strange rectangular trophy. The brands she beat out should give you some indication of how big a deal this is for Victoria.
No one promotes Victoria’s brand better than the woman herself so obviously she chose to wear one of her own designs. We would have died to see VB in the mustard yellow version of this dress she sent down the runway in her Fall 2011 presentation. With a red lip and minimal eye make-up? Yes please.
The lovely knife pleats on the skirt are lost in the black dress and seeing as how she wore black last year, we are a touch disappointed even if she does look gorgeous.

We are on the fence to end all fences with this dress.
Designed by Abbey’s fashion BFF and wedding dress designer Giles Deacon, this suede, studded concoction has us in a conundrum. Is it fabulous? Is it awful? Can she walk in it? Can we pet it (you know how suede feels)? Is this her best make-up look in a while?
The answer to the last question is yes because a light smokey eye and a nude lip does wonders for her and is perfect for this look. The rest? We’ve no idea.
Do you like Abbey’s dress? Does she look better than Victoria? Do you think Victoria could have pulled off the yellow dress? We needs answers.
