The British Fashion Awards Through The A-List Instagram Lens

Go behind the scenes at fashion's most talked-about evening...

We’ve seen the red carpet highlights, picked out our style crushes and congratulated the winners, but when the paps weren’t around, what really happened at last night’s British Fashion Awards?

From Alexa sipping espresso Martinis to Karlie Kloss getting her make-up did in a cab, here’s what really happened at the BFAs through the lens of the celeb Instagram accounts…

Hats off to Karlie Kloss’ make-up artist. Applying mascara by torchlight in the back of a cab is no easy feat…

Suzy Menkes offered a glimpse of the auditorium at The London Coliseum before the guests had chance to take their seats…

Suzy also revealed the pain-staking preparation going into the event. Captioning this Instagram shot ‘Love watching the Swarowski crystals laid one by one for tonight ‘s British Fashion Awards.’

Once the awards kicked off, Marie Claire’s Tanya Philipson took her seat at the round table, complete with her very own personalised Edie Parker clutch

This was just a selection of the delicious food on offer at the Marie Claire table…

Suzy Menkes was the proud owner of the AAA pass everyone wish they had. She even got close enough to snap Kate Moss downing glass of wine before hitting the stage to present Sarah Burton with the Red Carpet Award…

Suki’s sister Immy Waterhouse shared this cute selfie, with the caption ‘#bfa with ma girl’

Label of the moment Shrimps was at the awards, complete with faux fur clutch which just so happened to match the one being carried but blogger Susie Bubble.

And then another with Kendall… ‘#aboutlastnight ❤️ @kendalljenner @britishfashioncouncil #britawards2014 #partnersincrime #london #bestnightever’

Olivier wasn’t the one showing off his table guests. Alexa’s BFF Jack Guinness was also at it…

And so was Rihanna, who shared this snap of her talking to award winner Edward Enninful with Naomi Campbell elegantly draped around her, naturally.

One of the most photographed moments of the evening was when John Galliano took to the stage, which Suzy Menkes eloquently explained: ‘John Galliano presented an Outstanding Achievement award at the British Fashion Awards to his dear friend Anna Wintour, whom John said had supported him through good and bad times’

With the evening almost over, the dancing started… 

One of the final parting shots came from Rita Ora’s stylist Kyle Devolle… ‘The British fashion awards was fun!’

From the London Coliseum it was onto Café Royal for Edward Enninful’s after-party where Rihanna made a quick outfit switch-up… 

With that, the night was over. Confirmed by Henry Holland’s captionned pic: ‘Ladies and gentlemen. #thebritishfashionawards is over.’

But it wasn’t all over for some guests. Karlie Kloss, one of the stars of the Victoria’s Secret show, shared this alarming snap: ‘Last night after a 17hour day running around London with the @VictoriasSecret #Angels and attending the #BFAs, I squeezed in a midnight work out with my trainer #JustinGelband to get ready for the #VSFashionShow (Dedication….or insanity?’
