As the British Fashion Awards take place tonight, we’ll bring you coverage as soon as videos and photography become available.
   Tonight’s first video, broadcast prior to the presentation of the Outstanding Achievement Award at the Savoy, features celebrities and editors praising the winner, Manolo Blahnik, CBE.
   Anna Wintour, Suzy Menkes, Kate Moss, Grace Coddington, Alexandra Shulman, Franca Sozzani, Lady Amanda Harlech, Anjelica Huston, David Bailey, Naomi Campbell, and Michael Roberts call him, among other accolades, ‘energetic’ and ‘deserving’ in the clip below.
   Menkes congratulates Blahnik not only on the award but on 40 years in business: it was 40 years ago when Ossie Clark invited Blahnik to design shoes for his collection. The following year, Blahnik set up a boutique in his own name in London.
   The video concludes with Bailey jokingly stating, ‘That’s enough, it’s just f***ing high-heel shoes.’
