Who Wore What: GUAP Gala 2023 Red Carpet Photos

Last night GUAP celebrated its second annual GUAP Gala event in London. Like last year, the celebration represents what GUAP stands for: the celebration and platforming of the unsung heroes of the creative industry. As guests arrived at the iconic venue: Natural History Museum, they were greeted with live music from Edward Adeshina on the saxophone and J Hope on the Violin.

To kick off London Fashion Week and as a way to encourage guests’ creativity, they were invited to choose outfits that explored this year’s theme: Cosmic Dreams.

Fashion is a great storytelling tool and this year more people than ever committed to the theme. Here are some looks from the night.
