Other stars who ditched sophistication for extravagance included Hollyoaks star Wallis Day, who risked a wardrobe malfunction in a very high slit bodysuit.

The White Tiger star turned heads in the colourful ensemble which also covered her heeled boots. She accessorised with a statement silver necklace and matching diamond earrings – sporting a ‘more is more’ ensemble.

Meanwhile Nick sported a classic smart in a black suit and quirky huff style shoes.

Elon Musk’s model mother Maye Musk, 73, proved that money can’t buy style on the red carpet.

The usually well-dressed star opted for a bold Tony Ward couture catsuit and matching cape with a brashy golden pendant.

She paired the look with clashing pink heels – breaking a cardinal rule of fashion to pair pink and red.

Elsewhere, London-based designer Pegah Pourmand looked gaudy in a dress from her own brand La Pearlin.

She paired the look with clashing pink heels – breaking a cardinal rule of fashion to pair pink and red. 

The bubble-gum pink asymmetrical number completely swamped her with excessive frills and bows. 

With the cape of the dress going down her back with a Barbie-esque train, the fashion star showed off her legs as she paired the short-at-the-front dress with a pair of black and sparkling silver slingback heels.

Fellow designer Gabriela Hearst also missed the mark in an ethereal white gown which would have looked out of place in the 1970s.
