12 British Girls Show Us How to Dress for a Night Out

London has been quite the hub of after-hours activity this week: Monday kicked off with the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards, where Emma Watson and Keira Knightley, both in sumptuous gowns, added some A-list sparkle to the magazine’s annual proceedings.

Tuesday was the party night, as Alexa Chung fêted her collaboration with Marks & Spencer with stylish friends TV presenter Laura Jackson and stylist Martha Ward all loyally kitted out in her second range in collaboration with the high-street stalwart. That same evening, Burberry hosted its Christmas party with its new face, actress Lily James, and over at Somerset House, and hair guru Sam McKnight’s exhibition opened with Yasmin le Bon and a slew of top model supporters.

Exhausted just reading his? Hangovers were no doubt being nursed at the weekend as expats Rosie Huntington Whitley and Liberty Ross strutted their stuff in new-season Gucci at the LACMA Art and Film Gala. 

So never mind if you’re wearing cosy slippers, scroll through the gallery below to get your fix of red carpet style done the Brit-girl way…
