The Fashion Awards made its return at the Royal Albert Hall in London on November 29, an annual event that honours international individuals and businesses who've made a mark on the fashion industry.

The event saw 15 individuals and brands named leaders of change for their actions in the past year helping the environment, people and creativity. The list included the late Virgil Abloh who recently passed away due to cancer. The American-born son of Ghanaian immigrants was the creative force behind Louis Vuitton's menswear collections.

Others on the list included Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia, Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, and Kim Jones, artistic director for Fendi womenswear and couture as well as menswear designer at Dior. Jones was also named designer of the year at the awards. Michele also won the trailblazer award, while Hilfiger received the outstanding achievement award.

The event was attended by fashion and entertainment A-Listers such as Demi Moore, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Tan France.

Chopra Jonas wore a flower patterned outfit by Richard Quinn, complete with a very large cape. Was her look interesting enough to get a curious double-take? Yes. Did we actually like her outfit? No, not really. The head-to-toe patterned look felt too overwhelming to the eye for us to consider it as tastefully dramatic.

Her partner, singer Nick Jonas wore a suit by fashion-house Maison Margiela.

British-Pakistani stylist and television personality France chose to "proudly wear" a "fellow Pakistani" designer, Mohsin Naveed Ranjha, and we're pretty ecstatic about that. This isn't the first time France opted for the Gujranwala-based designer, he wore a sherwani made by him earlier in November. He rocked the embroidered outfit.

American actor Zendaya grabbed social media's attention yet again with an all-black outfit by Roberto Cavalli that had a very intriguing back. We feel this is another look for the win by the Spider Man star who's known for serving red carpet looks and grabbing attention.

Here's Zendaya's outfit from the front.

American TikTok star Addison Rae wore a dramatic gown to the event with a bejewelled bodice and long black trail.

American actor Gabrielle Union was seen in a bright neon number by Valentino on the event's red carpet. Union might just have revived this summer's neon trend for a few hours right at the end of the year.

The designers and celebrities who attended the event also paid tribute to Abloh on the red carpet. "Genius, disruptor... [he] will be missed tremendously by all," Hilfiger said on the red carpet. "He inspired designers as well as the public."
