The fashions were extra funky at Monday’s Elle Style Awards in London at the Grand Connaught Rooms. Fashionistas like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Alexa Chung and “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart were there to receive awards for their unique sense of style, according Elle UK.
Stewart, who wore a geometric gray minidress to the event, was awarded Woman of the Year for her hip, rocker aesthetic. Mary-Kate Olsen, who wore Lanvin to the event, and sister Ashley, who wore Christian Lacroix, earned the magazine’s Icons of the Year prize for their personal sense of style and their fashion line, the Row.
Carey Mulligan, who won the BAFTA award for Best Leading Actress the night before, wore a blazer and skirt from the Row as she received the Style Award for Best Actress. Claire Danes, in a demure black Burberry dress, was on hand to present designer Christopher Bailey with the International Designer of the Year prize. Model and TV personality Alexa Chung looked hipster cool in her blue Chanel dress with matching Chanel bag as she took home the Editor’s Choice award.
Although they didn’t win any awards, other celebrities in attendance included pop star Leona Lewis, in a fashion staple: a little, black dress with a peep-hole neckline, puff sleeves and a lady-like hat. And 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto decided to go all punk rock with a Mohawk, white army boots and acid-wash slim-fitting jeans.
