Edie Campbell scooped the covetable Model of the Year accolade at the British Fashion Awards on Monday night, a year after Cara Delevingne bagged the title.

The raven-haired beauty was effortlessly cool in slouchy boyfriend jeans, a grey t-shirt and embellished black cape as she accepted the British Fashion Council gong, declaring: "This is nice because models rarely get to speak!"
