Last night, the Claridge’s Hotel in London was the place to be for great women in the fields of fashion, music and entertainment. Harper’s Bazaar held their Women of the Year Awards and as you would expect, the stars came out and they looked amazing. The awards were a celebration of inspiring female figures who have made a mark in 2012.

Emily Blunt, keeping in tune with the theme of Halloween, showed up in a sleeveless orange gown by Alexander McQueen that boasted a sparkly neckline. The 29-year-old beauty paired her striking gown with a black clutch purse and Burberry shoes.

Also on hand for the evening were designers Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney, as well as models David Gandy and his girlfriend Sarah Ann Macklin.
