Cara Delevingne, Emily Ratajkowski and Winnie Harlow were among the stars seen heading home from London’s swanky private members’ club George after dancing well into the night at the Vogue World afterparty on Thursday.
Supermodels, acting legends, royalty and some of the biggest names in showbusiness gathered at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane for the Vogue World Show.
Showcasing the perils of her revealing look, model Cara sported visibly laddered tights as she jumped into a waiting car looking a little worse for wear.
The style icon debuted a wild punk mohawk and forewent trousers as she stepped out in a lilac cardigan and white T-shirt for one of the biggest nights in UK fashion.

Winnie Harlow changed out of her black gown from the red carpet and into a purple fringed minidress for the late night party.
The halterneck frock featured racy cut outs and left very little to the imagination as she too weaved her way through the crowd and headed home in the back of a waiting car.
Billed as a ‘multi-act celebration of the British performing arts’, the glittering one-off extravaganza, kickstarted London Fashion Week.
The event – dubbed Britain’s answer to the iconic Met Gala – is the brainchild of Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour but viewers, who watched via the YouTube livestream, took to social media to admit they left baffled by the ‘bizarre’ show.
Thursday’s event served as a fundraiser for Britain’s performing arts industry, with Anna overseeing proceedings.
The first Vogue World event featured a fashion show and street fair when it took place in New York’s meatpacking district in 2021, but the London ceremony was a much grander affair.
The dress code was Opening Night, with the invitation revealing a West End stage decorated with by blood-red velvet curtains.
