Last night, fashion’s favourites attended the 2012 Elle Style Awards, flaunting their unique personal styles. Presenters included icons like Naomi Campbell, Christina Ricci, Cuba Gooding Junior, Dizzee Rascal and Tali Lennox, though the real show was on the red carpet.
Rosie Huntington-Whitely looked her usual gorgeous self in a sheer Antonio Berardi gown, proving why she deserved the Style Icon award.
American actress Jessica Chastain, who won the Next Future Icon award, looked eye-catching in a black Alexander McQueen dress complete with a lace peplum and waist-cinching belt.

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, who won the Best TV Star award, donned a vibrant purple print dress that complemented her magnetic red hair, commenting that people have too many ideas about what one should wear on the red carpet.
“You shouldn’t wear prints and you shouldn’t wear that and I think that some of the fun has been taken out of fashion. I think people should wear what they feel passionate about,” she said.
Style icon Alexa Chung rocked a grey Stella McCartney tux with plaid panels while Florence Welch, who won Best Music Act, looked beautiful in head-to-toe Erdem.
Other notable red carpet styles included new Bond girl Naomie Harris, who shined in a bold blue Viktor & Rolf dress, and British model Poppy Develigne, who wore Mary Katrantzou for Topshop (available in stores this Friday)!
Burberry Model and up and coming actor, Eddie Redmayne, had the crowd swooning as he received the award for Best Actor, remarking, “I’ve never been in a room with more beautiful people. Can I come back?”
