Supermodels, Hollywood legends, and entertainment icons graced the red carpet at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane for the prestigious Vogue World Show. This event, touted as a ‘multi-act celebration of the British performing arts,’ drew A-listers, including Rita Ora, Sienna Miller, and Winnie Harlow, who made a grand entrance in exquisite black gowns.
Winnie Harlow’s Dazzling Presence
Winnie Harlow, the 29-year-old model, radiated glamour in her plunging black velvet gown, complemented by a striking white satin coat with a dramatic puffed neckline. Her ensemble was nothing short of show-stopping elegance.
Rita Ora’s Bold Choice
Rita Ora, at 32, opted for a head-turning black fishtail dress. While her outfit was undeniably eye-catching, it presented a challenge when it came to walking gracefully on the red carpet.
Anna Wintour and Edward Enninful’s Red Carpet Appearance
Editor-in-chief Dame Anna Wintour and British Vogue’s own editor Edward Enninful made a united appearance on the red carpet. This came amid reports of a power struggle between the two figures. Enninful, who was set to transition into a ‘global advisory position’ at Vogue, was rumored to aspire to Wintour’s role. However, it seems Wintour is determined to maintain her position as Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief.
Princess Beatrice and Eugenie’s Stylish Presence
Princess Beatrice of York and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi graced the event, following their attendance at the V&A Chanel Exhibition the previous night. Beatrice looked elegant in a green silk dress, accompanied by her sister Eugenie, who added sparkle with diamond drop earrings.
Lady Victoria Hervey’s Dazzling Entrance
Lady Victoria Hervey made a bold statement with her white embroidered lace gown featuring a dramatic train. Her attire captured attention and embodied the spirit of the evening.
A Fundraiser for the Arts
The Vogue World Show served as a fundraiser for Britain’s performing arts industry, with Anna Wintour overseeing the proceedings. This event marked a grander affair compared to its New York predecessor, featuring opera, ballet, theatre, and a showcase of talent.
Fashion and Philanthropy
Renowned designers like Burberry, Erdem, and Maison Margiela contributed to the event’s fashion appeal, with all ticket proceeds going towards supporting threatened theater companies, including the National Theatre, Royal Opera House, and the Royal Ballet. The evening, masterminded by industry experts, aimed to celebrate the performing arts and secure their future.
