A night of fashion

The stars were out in full force last for the Elle Style Awards 2011, which took place in London last night – and the biggest winner of the night was British actress and Burberry model Emma Watson, who walked away with the Style Icon accolade…

Having burst onto the big screen as frizzy-haired Hermoine Granger in Harry Potter a decade ago, Emma Watson has now been branded as a style icon by fashion magazine, Elle. The twenty-year old, who last year showed off her dramatic change of image with a pixie crop hairstyle, has been gracing the red carpet and the pages of glossy magazines with her elegant style and is currently an ambassador for French beauty brand Lancome.

Emma Watson, who was presented the award by fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, was said to be “overwhelmed” by her win. She said: "It feels amazing. Fashion is something that I love. I try not to think about it too much. I try and block all that off and I just do what I love and just have fun with it. I’ve definitely been feeling the pressure a bit more recently but it’s just fun for me."
