Florence Welch looked sensational whilst gliding down the red carpet at Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards, which was held at Claridges Hotel in London last night.

Salma Hayek may have been the first to wear an Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 commercial look, but Florence is the first to bring a runway look alive.

She wore a gold barnacle lace gown with gold beaded embellishments.

Her gown still has the tiered details from the empire waist, the keyhole detail and high neckline, but her modified version has long sleeves.

Whilst she let her gown do all the talking by pulling her hair back and opting for minimal makeup, she did add a standout McQueen clutch.

The ivory knuckle clutch with gold hardware also had ivory horns.

Florence more than does justice to this gown. I never had her in mind for this collection – strangely – but she’s a perfect fit.
