The creme de la creme of the fashion world were led by Irish designer Simone Rocha at the annual British Fashion Awards last night.

Rocha (26) -- daughter of fashion guru John Rocha -- looked amazing at the glitzy ceremony in London's Coliseum where she won the Emerging Talent for Womenswear Award.

She wasn't the only Irish winner at the event where Derry's JW Anderson also lifted the New Establishment Award.

Last year, Anderson (29) took home the gong for Best Emerging Talent.

And flame-haired TV presenter Angela Scanlon was also in attendance to grill the fashion elite.

Scanlon told the Herald: "I was doing the red carpet coverage and it was deadly. I got to meet loads of my all-time favourites. It was a little intimidating, but the nerves disappeared when I was on the carpet. I was too cold to be nervous."

And the bubbly TV host made sure to show her support for Simone.

She added: "I was wearing a delicious little black dress with pearl collar by Simone -- showing my support."

The event, hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall, was a star-studded affair; Kate Moss received a Special Recognition Award and arrived in a white fur coat which hid a leather mini dress.

And the boys didn't look half bad either.

One Direction's Harry Styles looked dapper in a spotted silk scarf and black jacket, while the oh-so stylish Tinie Tempah was suited and booted in a velvet jacket and matching bow tie.
