If there was an award for the best dressed star at the British Fashion Awards, it would go straight to Maya for this elegant, vintage inspired look.

Maya wore a black dress that cinched in at the waist, with bold cut-outs and a matching black hat. Makeup-wise, she and makeup artist Letitia Sophia opted for a glow, 'glazed' foundation look and a classic smokey eye, which really pulled the whole look together.

Just hours before the British Fashion Awards, Maya also rocked up to Vogue's 'Forces For Change' dinner wearing a white lace dress, covered in a black chain print.

Underneath her sheer lace dress, she also wore black underwear to match the chains and wore her hair up. Overall it was a very dramatic but elegant ensemble.

This appearance sparked quite the online frenzy as Maya and Stormzy were reportedly spotted catching up, but aside from all the romance rumors, her outfit definitely deserves a shout out!

Maya wore a hooded, white crop top, paired with a pair of white, structured suit pants from Monot—and even matched her eyeliner to the outfit.

Jumping on the sheer dress trend, Maya wore this striped, mesh-style black dress on MTV EMA's red carpet.

The dress featured a long train and stylish diagonal straps, which the presenter paired with black, strappy heels and a nude bodysuit. It's very much a cool-girl take on the 'naked dress' trend we saw so much of at the 2021 Met Gala.

Maya served a serious look on the BRIT Awards red carpet, wearing this dramatic, black cut-out gown, which she paired with a black, fluffy wrap—how chic is that?

We're still obsessed with Maya's look from the GQ 2021 awards. She wore this long, v-neck, black tasseled dress that featured a choker-style strap. 

While Maya will likely be dressing slightly more casually for her Love Island debut, we're already pretty darn excited to see her looks—and if the rumors are to be believed, we won't be waiting on the winter Love Island season for much longer...
