Behind The Scenes: Scottish Fashion Awards

The 7th annual Scottish Fashion Awards in association with InStyle took place last night  in Glasgow and aswell as a star-studded list of supermodels and celebrities, WhatSheWears jetted into Scotland for the occasion too.

Dolce & Gabbana model David Gandy was in attendance, as well as Made in Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh  and Amy Winehouse’s goddaughter Dionne Bromfield (who gave a performance) – and all mingled with fashion’s elite.

With a bird’s eye view of the red carpet, I tweeted guests arriving before they were swept away to a Moet champagne reception in Glasgow’s Clyde auditorium, followed by the awards ceremony and a four course gala dinner including a mini marshmallow handbag as part of the dessert.

Wears: The event host wore a Christopher Kane dress layered over a white shirt. I spotted her later wearing a Carven leather biker jacket over it.

Wears: Supertrash dress, Louboutin platforms, Swarovski clutch and earrings

She: Mario Testino and Karl Lagerfeld spoke warmly about Scottish model and face of Chanel Stella Tennant  in a video as she was inducted into the Scottish Fashion Awards Hall of Fame.  Stella thanked Testino, “not only for his kind words, but for introducing me to my husband who’s sitting over there”.

Wears: Autumn winter 2012-13 Christopher Kane

After dinner, I danced with New York celebrity stylist and media figure Derek Warburton (who wore a turban and a quarter of a million Euro’s worth of Swarovski rings) and I then asked stalked model David Gandy for a photo together!

Other highlights of the night included seeing my favourite fashion blogger,  Liberty London Girl, arrive wearing a Temperly dress and tux jacket and chatting to fashion designer Holly Fulton at the after party in the Blyswood Square Hotel.
