London Fashion Week paid its own tribute to Her Majesty the Queen on Sunday evening as a host of stars attended Christopher Kane catwalk show on the eve of her state funeral. 

Laura Carmichael, Daisy Lowe, Lara Stone and Jourdan Dunn were all in attendance as the Scottish designer unveiled his latest collection at Camden Roundhouse, with all paying tribute to our longest serving monarch by wearing funereal black. 

Leading the glamour on a subdued evening in the English capital, Downton Abbey star Laura, 36, opted for a smart black leather miniskirt teamed with a statement sweater as she prepared to take her seat on the front row. 

She added to the look with a pair of strappy black heels, while her hair was naturally styled with a simple side-parting. 

As the United Kingdom remains in a period of mourning for the Queen, who will be laid to rest on September 19, the actress appeared to be one of few guests to opt for something other than traditional black evening wear.  

Elsewhere Daisy Lowe, 33, opted for a sweeping black gown and matching suede for her latest public appearance, just days after confirming her engagement to  long-term boyfriend Jordan Saul. 

She offset the look with a shimmering gold handbag, while generously applied red lipstick gave an otherwise subdued ensemble an added splash of colour. 

Joining the socialite, supermodel Lara Stone made her own concession to the Queen’s passing in a sequined black dress with sheer detailing. 

The Dutch star, 38, rounded off her look with a pair of strappy black heels – while limited accessories – a recurring theme on the night – added to its sombre tone.
