Fashion month is well and truly in full swing, with London Fashion Week offering up the best in British and Irish design.

From Simone Rocha sending tulle-covered parkas down the runway, to JW Anderson and his mirrorball mini dress design, the Irish and Northern Irish contingent is going strong alongside other heavyweights such as Erdem, Emilia Wickstead and Richard Quinn.

The Irish fashion flag was also flown by Nicola Coughlan, as the Galway actress attended the Christopher Kane show at London Fashion Week.

The Bridgerton star turned heads in the chic crowd, standing out in a striking vampy little black dress by the designer. Coughlan has become a fixture at certain fashion events, always bringing her blend of opulent glamour and contemporary edge.

Styled by go-to stylist Aimee Croysdill, she wore a form-fitting black gown, featuring a sweetheart neckline edged in crystal embellishments, long slightly voluminous sleeves, a cinched in waist and an elegant maxi-length skirt. She accessorised with simple black pointed toed heels and a smattering of rings.

Contrasting her comparatively understated and sophisticated ensemble was a bold and modern makeup look, created by makeup artist Naoko Scintu.

Scintu chose a graphic silver eye look, featuring a floating metallic wing painted into the crease of Coughlan's eye. She contrasted this with a minimalist eyeshadow and mascara look, letting the pop of silver do the talking.

She finished the look with a coral-nude lipstick and dewy and balmy skin, with a touch of contouring and a swirl of shimmering rose-hued blush.

Her hair was also kept simple, letting the makeup talk, as hair stylist Halley Brisker created an elegant and sleek blow dry look. Further heralding the return of the side part, Brisker styled Coughlan's platinum blonde tresses into a sleek long bob, with the ends lightly turned under for a polished and retro-inspired look.
