Christine Chiu takes us through her day as she prepares and attends her first British Fashion Awards

Held in London’s Royal Albert Hall, the 2021 edition of The Fashion Awards saw not only the biggest names in fashion in attendance. With Kim Jones, Dua Lipa, and Billy Porter among the luminaries who made an appearance—The Fashion Awards was certainly a veritable gathering of fashion’s cognoscenti. 

Joining the shiny firmament of stars at The Fashion Awards was Bling Empire’s very own Christine Chiu, who marked her red carpet debut at the event hosted by the British Fashion Council. Chiu is definitely no stranger to high fashion. Aside from being the co-founder of the Beverly Hill Plastic Surgery practice, the fashion-forward personality is an avid couture client—from Gucci gowns to Dior dresses, Chiu has donned them all in her many public appearances and social gatherings.

You know you never forget your first—so thankfully, Chiu documented her night for Tatler. Here, she shares an exclusive photo diary of her time in London for the Awards: from her journey from glam prep, to the red carpet and on to the after-parties.

Excited to be attending the British Fashion Awards for the first time.

Armani Privé is always the best idea.

A healthy and full breakfast, goes a long way.

My tip for red carpet ready skin? Sleep, water and 111 skin masks.

When you have height, style and comfort in a satin heel—thank you Armani Privé for this perfect pair.

Giorgio Armani once said, “The difference between style and fashion is quality.” I couldn’t agree more.

30 degrees Fahrenheit outside, but this gown is fire.

London dressed in Christmas lights made for the most beautiful ride to the red carpet.

Whether as a talent or as a client, to be dressed by Armani Privé is an incredible honour and pleasure.

Loved bumping into the sweetest and über-talented designer Sohee Park, at the awards.

After the awards were the Tommy Hilfiger after-party, and after that we had martinis at the Connaught Bar.

From their afternoon tea, patisserie, and iconic bar—The Connaught is my home away from home in London.
