2017 British Fashion Awards: Naomi Campbell Leads Alaia Tribute
Since his death on Nov. 23 at age 77, his muse Naomi Campbell has been sharing tribute photos and messages on Instagram. Alongside some of his favorite models, including Stephanie Seymour, Farida Khelfa, Carla Bruni and Veronica Webb, Campbell told her fans that the women were honoring Alaïa at the big event.
“#tributetopapa #tonight ALAIA DAUGHTERS @azzedinealaiaofficial ON the red carpet #BritishFashioAwards @britishfashioncouncil #londoncalling,” Campbell, who opened and closed his fall couture show, captioned an Instagram photo.
Some of the other highlights that evening included awards for Raf Simons, named Designer of the Year; Stella McCartney, who won the Innovation award; Virgil Abloh received the Urban Luxe Brand honor for Off-White; and Jonathan Anderson was named Accessories Designer of the Year for Loewe.
Of course, the biggest show was on the red carpet when the fashion industry’s biggest tastemakers arrived to celebrate among the honorees.

Kaia Gerber looked chic in an ice blue multi-tiered dress with matching Ralph & Russo satin pointed-toe pumps that featured covered heels with silver-tone leaf accents.
