Lea Michele certainly has a flair for the dramatic—the star of Glee grew up performing on Broadway, after all—but we would have preferred to see a more toned-down look on the actress at Fox’s upfront after-party yesterday. On the runway, this Erdem frock was paired with little more than a smoky eye, lending some much-needed edge to a sophisticated print. Michele’s voluminous updo and dark pout are just too much here. What do you think? Do you like seeing the real-life Rachel Berry experiment on the red carpet, or should this solo be cut?
The British Fashion Council announced today that Erdem Moralioglu is the winner of the first BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund Award, beating out fellow Britons Angel Jackson, Christopher Kane, Clements Ribeiro, E. Tautz, Marios Schwab, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Richard Nicoll. The award comes with a £200,000 prize and access to mentors across the industry. “I am thrilled to be the winner of the BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund. It is an honor,” the Turkish-born designer said simply.

If you need any evidence that Nicholas Kirkwood is London fashion week’s go-to cobbler, look no further than the display he’s set up at LFW’s Somerset House headquarters. After every show in which a Kirkwood shoe appears, a pair is added to the installation—at last count, half a dozen pairs. But fans can rejoice that one new pair will be available off the runway, too: the collaborative Kirkwood-Erdem boots that debuted at Erdem’s show yesterday will be sold to stores, making them only the second NK collab (after his designs for Rodarte) made available to the public.
