    Stella McCartney was named Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, which were staged at London's Savoy Theatre Tuesday night. 

    The award is the cherry on top of a big year for McCartney, who designed the Team GB uniforms for Britain's Olympic competitors this summer.

    The glitzy affair, which included guests such as actress Salma Hayek and architect Zaha Hadid, also honored Sophie Hulme, J.W. Anderson and Jonathan Saunders with awards for Emerging Talent in accessories, ready-to-wear and menswear, WWD reports.

    Roksanda Illincic—a favorite shared by Michelle Obama and the Duchess of Cambridge—walked away with the coveted Red Carpet award, while Nicholas Kirkwood—he of the architectural, sky-high sandal—was dubbed Accessory Designer of the year.

    Cult favorite Erdem Moralioglu, whose floral-printed shifts have become de rigeur for fashion's elite, took the award for New Establishment.

    Unsurprisingly, Alexa Chung—who sported a semi-sheer Simone Rocha frock and Nicholas Kirkwood embroidered booties to the event—walked away with the British Style Vodafone award for the third year running.
