Big names from around the entertainment world trod the red carpet at The Fashion Awards 2019 on Monday, as Naomi Campbell was crowned fashion icon.

The event at London’s Royal Albert Hall was hosted by actress Tracee Ellis Ross – the daughter of Diana Ross.

Another pop legend, Janet Jackson, was on hand to give singer-come-Fenty brand designer Rihanna her first major fashion award – for Urban Luxe.

Jackson posted her congratulations online, alongside a picture of them both looking suitably chuffed.

Campbell, one of the original supermodels from the 90s, wore an Alexander McQueen dress in the so-called “nearly naked” trend and was presented with her icon award by Sir Jony Ive.

Designer of the year went to Englishman Daniel Lee for his work on the Bottega Veneta brand, while model of the year was won by South Sudanese-Australian star Adut Akech. She took the opportunity in her winners’ speech to call for greater diversity in the fashion industry.

“It is important for all of us to remember that someone like me winning this award is a rarity,” she said, according to The Independent.

“This is for the young women and men who found representation and validation in my work. I want them to never be afraid of dreaming big like I once did.”
