The Fashion Awards took place at London's Royal Albert Hall on Monday.

Celebrities including Sam Smith and Suki Waterhouse walked the red carpet at the event, which celebrates the biggest names in British fashion. Some attendees celebrated specific designers with their looks, including Valentino, as the brand's founder Valentino Garavani was honored with an Outstanding Achievement Award at the event.

The ceremony also raised money for the BFC Foundation, which provides "education, grant-giving, and business mentoring" to newcomers in the industry, according to its website.

'Bridgerton' star Simone Ashley wore a floral Valentino minidress that was a standout on the red carpet.

Ashley is a reliable fashion "it" girl on red carpets, so it's no surprise the actor chose this stunning piece for the Fashion Awards.

Her barely-there white dress had an embroidered-flower design, giving it a textured look.

The halter neckline dipped to Ashley's waist, while two cutouts on the sides of the short dress gave it even more edge. White pumps completed the ensemble.

Rita Ora arrived wearing a playful outfit with spikes on the back.

Her floor-length black dress — a seemingly unreleased piece from her Primark collection — had a backless design that was daring enough on its own.

But Ora also added silver spikes down her spine that added an unexpected, fun twist and literal edge to her look.

Luke Newton's sage-green outfit had a hint of sparkle.

Newton, who plays Colin Bridgerton on the Netflix series, arrived at the Fashion Awards in a long, double-breasted jacket and coordinated, high-waisted trousers from Ami.

He wore an off-white tank top and a sparkly, unbuttoned top under the jacket, adding a needed touch of glamour to the ensemble. Black shoes completed the look.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock matched the event decor in a fun way.

This red Chet Lo design included a halter neckline, backless bodice, hip cutouts, an asymmetrical skirt, and all-over fabric spikes.

The singer also added spiked heels to keep the texture of her ensemble consistent.

Lisa Rinna went with gothic glam for the red carpet.

Chet Lo created Rinna's off-the-shoulder gown, which had a neckline, sleeves, and floor-length skirt that were all covered in fabric spikes.

She also wore her hair — which was dyed a jet-black color — in a sharp style that matched her outfit, and let her silver hoop earrings shine.

Ashley Park dazzled in a floor-length David Koma gown.

The black column dress was simple but had a statement silver-and-black fish embellishment on the neckline that extended over one shoulder as a strap.

She completed the look with silver jewelry that included rings, bracelets, earrings, and a necklace.

Sam Smith's all-black outfit was custom-made by Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood.

It included a button-down blazer with silver buttons and exaggerated sleeves, a matching knee-length skirt, heeled boots, and ankle socks.

Olivia Culpo wore a Miss Sohee Couture gown with a plunging neckline.

The black, velvet gown had a deep V-neck with an interesting scalloped detail and extended into a mermaid-style skirt with a short train on the bottom.

But what made the dress unique were its bedazzled hip pieces, which looked like pink petals with black stripes.

Suki Waterhouse's maternity gown was actually a designer piece from H&M.

A version of her strapless tulle gown from H&M's upcoming Studio Holiday capsule will retail for $350 (it's just missing the train, which was added to Waterhouse's dress for the red carpet).

Speaking with Vogue, Waterhouse described herself as a "high-street girl at heart" and said she felt like she was wearing "four dresses in one."

"I had to be unfastened mid-way through dinner," she told the publication. "This one is breathable."

Jourdan Dunn wore a semi-sheer dress over a strapless black bra.

Dunn's black dress designed by Thaihuy had a high neckline and an almost completely transparent bodice, aside from a bra that provided a bit of coverage on her upper body.

The dramatic dress had a dropped waist, with rays of fabric spiraling up from the skirt onto the bodice. And instead of the skirt simply flowing out, it tapered down and flowed up her arm, attaching at the shoulder like a cape.

A tall headpiece and Bucherer jewelry completed the bold look.

FKA Twigs wore a netted Valentino dress with sparkly, platform heels.

The neckline of the singer's dress dipped low into a V, mirroring the diamond-shaped cutouts on the bodice.

Because the dress was made of silver, netted material, it was almost entirely see-through, so Twigs wore nude coverings on her chest and a nude miniskirt under the gown.

Model Leomie Anderson wore a long-sleeved, see-through gown from Julien X Gabriela.

Anderson's dress was made in collaboration between Julien Macdonald and Gabriela Gonzalez.

The transparent, tulle gown was adorned with reflective triangle prints, and it had a slit on one side of the skirt. She paired the dress with open-toe heels.

"Emily in Paris" actor Lucien Laviscount walked the red carpet in a cream Dolce & Gabbana ensemble.

The actor's look consisted of a waistcoat and high-waisted pants that flared just below the knee.

He wore no shirt with the sleeveless top, giving it a daring edge.

"Queen Charlotte" star India Amarteifio wore a mermaid gown by Huishan Zhang.

Amarteifo's soft-gray gown was adorned with ruffles on the top of the bodice, which coordinated with the tiers of ruffles on the bottom of the mermaid skirt. Exposed boning on the bodice gave the dress an architectural edge.

She styled her hair back in a slicked-back updo, highlighting the Moira Fine Jewellery she wore.
