Cheryl Cole, Emma Watson and Blake Lively all picked up prizes at this year's Elle Style Awards.
Cheryl Cole was the star turn at this year's Elle Style Awards, held this year at London's Grand Connaught rooms. The X Factor judge, 27, won the best music award wearing a red Alexander McQueen gown.
Harry Potter actress Emma Watson was at the ceremony to pick up her style icon award. The 20-year-old said she doesn't feel like a role model: "It feels amazing. Fashion is something that I love. I try not to think about it too much."
Actress Blake Lively, 23, received the best TV star award for her role in American series Gossip Girl. Host Alexa Chung admitted she was nervous about presenting the awards, even though it was her third time.
Doctor Who actress Karen Gillan, 23, wore shorts to the ceremony. Fashion guru and film-maker Tom Ford was named top international designer with 28-year-old Christopher Kane named best British designer.
Singer Ellie Goulding, 24, was also at the event. The best actress prize went to Natalie Portman, who won the same title at the Baftas. The US star couldn't get to the awards because she's heavily pregnant.
Also among the winners were Coco Rocha (left - best model), Stephen Dorff (pictured centre with Minnie Driver - best actor) and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actress Noomi Rapace (right - next breakthrough talent).
Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton, 29, was at the ceremony alongside singer Corinne Bailey Rae and Jo Whiley. Another winner was former supermodel Helena Christensen who got the outstanding contribution to fashion prize.
Hollywood actress Thandie Newton, former model and radio DJ Lisa Snowdon and 22-year-old Pack Up singer Eliza Doolittle walked the red carpet as well. At the awards, best jewellery designer went to Dominic Jones.
