When the British Fashion Awards was crammed with stylish stars wearing Stella McCartney creations, we should've known the designer would be the biggest winner of the night. Yep, our Stella scooped not one but TWO gongs at last night's ceremony - one for Designer Brand, one for Designer of the Year - as well as having the likes of Amber Valetta, Gemma Arterton and Salma Hayek showcasing her designs on the red carpet.
'I’m obviously a massive fan of Stella and since the Olympics I don’t think I could choose anyone else,' Victoria Pendleton told us of her dress choice for the event. 'I’m very lucky to have spoken to her about the development in the Olympic kit, she actually came to Manchester to meet us all so it was a really unique experience and I really look up to her. She’s like my idol. She's such a powerful, successful woman.' Praise indeed!
As well as winning our hearts as an Olympic champion this summer, Victoria hit our screens in this year's series of Strictly Come Dancing. She's spent the last few weeks shakin' and shimmin' in an array of flirty ensembles, but which was her favourite costume? 'The fringy gold number right at the beginning with the cut out,' she revealed. 'It felt very revealing but it kind of just made you want to shimmy.'
Fringing aside, 2012 has seen Victoria become a style star in her own right. She's bagged front row seats at the Burberry show and many a designer frock as well as her triumphant gold medal at the Olympics. Take a trip through a year in her style with our gallery above.
