There was a very special guest at the event as star of The September Issue Grace Coddington was presented with the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator. She received a standing ovation as many teary eyed over her emotional speech. Karen Elson presented Grace with her gong, but there was drama as the model fell through the stage!

One of the most discussed awards has to be model of the year which went to Hudson jeans campaign star Georgia May Jagger. Daisy Lowe was a graceful runner up tweeting, "I don't mind as she is super amazing". For the first time, the public voted for one award called London 25 which was awarded to Kate Moss for 'embodying the spirit of London'.

Kate also collected another award on behalf of John Galliano who won the BFC Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design prize – she was fittingly in Dior. You can see a full list of winners here and there is still time to vote for your design house of the year.
