Stella McCartney is double-win at last night’s British Fashion Awards 2012.

The British Fashion Awards took place at the Savoy Hotel on November 27, 2012 in London, England. Stella McCartney won big at this year, taking home two top honors of the night: Designer of the Year and the Designer Brand Award. Hollywood star Salma Hayek presented Stella with her Designer of the Year statuette.

The daughter of singing legend Paul McCartney has an effortless appeal that attracts the masses. She’s known for her use of clean, strong lines. As one of Britain’s most famous fashion designers, she had the honor of designing Team GB’s uniforms for the 2012 Olympic Games held in London.

Celebrities seen wearing her clothes include but are not limited to Kate Winslet, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Other winners included fashionista Alexa Chung who picked up the award for British Style, marking the third time she has been recognised at the British Fashion Awards for her style credentials, and she remains the sole winner of this award since its introduction in 2010.
