The fact Awards 2021: the best red carpet arrivals

It’s London’s answer to the Met Gala and attracts one of the best red carpet line-ups the UK sees all year. That’s right, The fact Awards 2021 are here.

Guests have arrived on the steps of the Royal Albert Hall, and braced the cold (it’s currently two degrees out there) in truly spectacular style. The VIPs will then will be seated for a ceremony complete of speeches, performances and always some unexpected surprises. (Remember when a pregnant Meghan Markle appeared on stage pregnant to present an award in 2019?)

On the carpet, Kris Jenner made an entrance wrapped in a Tommy Hilfiger logo cape alongside the designer himself, his wife Dee Ocleppo and her boyfriend Korey Gamble. Dua Lipa looked sleek in a black, strapless gown, while Winnie Harlow showed some midriff in a quilted, pale green dress complete with sensible puffer sleeves.

Griff wore a white gown from Simone Rocha’s SS22 collection, while Normal People’s Paul Mescal opted for a golden, jacquard jacket with a peachy shirt and ribbon bow tie. form Munroe Bergdorf looked like a modern day Queen Elizabeth I wearing a lime green corset and huge, half-upturned, pleated farthingale. Chic!
