Stella McCartney has been announced Designer of the Year 2012 by the British Fashion Council at this year’s British Fashion Awards. She was also awarded with the Designer Brand of the Year, which was presented to her by Amber Valletta, who attended the Awards in the Savoy wearing an Autumnal red Stella McCartney gown. The actress, who describes Stella as an “old friend” and said she “loves Stella and everything she does”, wore the elegant 70s style gown gracefully with a pair of amber drop earrings.
The awards come after an amazing year for the designer, and recognise not only her contributions to the fashion industry but to Team GB as well.
