Today’s article was prompted by Mona Tougaard‘s nomination in the category Model of the Year at this year’s British Fashion Awards.

She is one of my favorite models and I wanted to revisit what she wore to the event, the first time she attended in 2021.

On the red carpet, Tougaard stunned in a red Alaïa ensemble with a bandeau top and long skirt with side slit from the Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear collection, paired with light grey Alaïa open-toe La Sculpture mules in calfin and wood (same model as pictured below, not the same shade).

The jewelry was at the bare minimum, indeed she complemented her ensemble with a pair of black Alaïa Eyelet leather earrings.

Petro Petrohilos did her makeup and focused his attention on keeping her brows combed and arched, applying a gentle touch of glittery grey eyeshadow on her lids, plus abundant mascara on the outer corner of her eyes to make them appear bigger. Blushy nude lips completed the look.

The hair was styled by Teiji Utsumi in her signature do: sleek, long, with a middle part.

She also sported a middle-length square nude manicure, which was courtesy of nail artist Jenny Longworth. A very classic choice for a very sexy and timeless ensemble.

The model has been part of several Alaïa campaigns, so it comes as no surprise that she was accompanied by the maison’s creative director Pieter Mulier, who probably served as her “stylist” for the occasion.

The Danish-born model has built an incredible modeling portfolio through the years and has slowly left her mark on the runways. I honestly think she has a good chance of winning the award this year, let’s see if I’m right in less than two weeks (the award celebration will take place on the 4th).


The Fashion Awards is a fundraiser for the BFC Foundation and focuses on celebrating excellence in the fashion industry and supporting the future pipeline of creative talent.

The BFC Foundation supports the future growth and success of the British fashion industry by focusing on three areas: Education, Grant-Giving & Business Mentoring and the Institute of Positive Fashion.

The BFC Foundation aims to improve equality and opportunity so that the fashion industry remains diverse and open to all, helping talented designers at all stages of their career from school level through to becoming a global fashion brand.

The 2021’s edition was presented by TikTok.
