The Scottish Style Awards is renowned as Scotland's style Oscars - our nation's most glamorous gathering.
With actor and director Pollyanna McIntosh hosting and a list of nominees that reads like a who's who of Scotland's elite, Moet and Chambord Royale flowed like rain in Scottish spring.
Even the goody bags were a step up from every other event, with bottles of Belvedere, Chambord and Hennessy among the treats and beauty gifts by Kiehls and Rainbow Room - as well as invitations to the elusive afterparty at The Sanctuary. Before that of course there was the small matter of dinner, TWO spectacular fashion shows and the awards ceremony which nearly brought the house down - quite literally in some cases as tables celebrated wins wildly, showing just how prestigious this event and the awards it celebrates are.
Notable winners included the brilliant BAaD (Barras Art and Design) Glasgow, artist and playwright John Byrne, artist and film-maker Rachel Maclean, Ken McCulloch, Rubadub records, The Voyage Of Buck in Edinburgh, Dakota Deluxe and The Spanish Butcher in Glasgow.
In a Scottish Style Awards exclusive, a stunning runway presentation celebrating the first decade of Harris Tweed Hebrides paid tribute to the iconic fabric whose quality and provenance is loved by the world's biggest and best designers, fashion houses and luxury brands.
This show was stunning, with a Peaky Blinders theme and sensational opening holding the audience enthralled. Well played Mark Hogarth.
Celebs galore enjoyed the evening, from the very stylish View singer Kyle Falconer to Be Charlotte, Young Fathers and Emily Shakarji.
All eyes, though, were on Roisin Murphy, who collected the headline Style Icon award and whose video reel had the entire audience dancing around and, in some cases, on their tables.
Judging by her enthusiasm post-show, we have a new adopted Glaswegian on our hands, and a very stylish one.
As always the real heroine was organiser Mary McGowne, who only got one thing wrong all night - she described Roisin as the "Queen of all style" when clearly, that title can belong to only Mary herself.
