Last week Cara Delevingne was toasting the grand opening of London’s Leon Max boutique on Westbourne Grove. Last night at the British Fashion Awards at the Savoy she was crowned Model of the Year 2012. Is there no stopping the elfin Belgravia-born babe who the London Times knighted today as the “The New Kate Moss.” That’s one great rep to live up too. But if last night is anything to go by, as Jonathan Saunders and a heady fash pack swept around her post-award, she’s definitely got the UK-side industry’s nod of approval. Meanwhile Stella McCartney landed two of the big prizes - the designer brand award and the designer of the year award. What with designing the outfits for Team GBs Olympic efforts its been a big year for the designer. She confirmed she would be moving her show from Paris to London for next season, as she was handed her award by Salma Hayek. With Princess Beatrice handing out awards and Prime Minister’s wife hanging off the arm of Erdem, everyone could agree, it’s definitely been a good year for Fashion’s Team GB.
