Blake Lively In Emilio Pucci – 2011 Elle Style Awards

Best International Star Award
Blake Lively looked stunning on the red carpet at the 2011 Elle Style Awards which was held at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London last night.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress was there to collect the ‘Best TV Star’ award wearing an Emilio Pucci Spring 2011 halter dress.

Her dress is held up by the thinnest gold strap which extended around the bust of her dress.

The asymmetrical tiered skirt reveals her long toned legs and fuchsia Christian Louboutin heels peep-toes.

She accessorized with gold earrings and a stacked gold bangles.

I love the dewy make-up. It’s so fresh and light.

As much as I love Blake in this dress, I can’t help feeling a sense of de ja vu as we’ve seen many variations of this style of dress on the red carpet recently.

Cheryl Cole In Alexander McQueen – 2011 Elle Style Awards

Best Use Of Colour Award
Cheryl Cole arrived at the 2011 Elle Style Awards to collect the ‘Best Music Award’ in London last night.

She opted for a bold bright red Alexander McQueen gown.

The simple plunging dress is a huge step up from a lot dark coloured looks she’s been wearing on the red carpet.

She teamed her look with matching red lippie and an Alexander McQueen lace four-finger clutch.

Cheryl does look good, but she was far from being the best dressed at this event.

Inside The Press Room At The Elle Style Awards

*warning flash photography in this video*

Here is a video taken with my trusty flip camera which shows the press room after the Awards show.

It’s pretty intense, but a lot of fun.

I’ve left the original sound on the video as there is a very funny point when Carey Mulligan is joined by Matthew Beard to have their picture taken together and a photographer shouts, “No Carey on your own”.

At the end of this video you also get to see the back of Ashley Olsen’s stunning Lacroix gown.

Runway To 2010 Elle Style Awards – Alexa Chung In Chanel

Best Dressed/Most Improved Award
One thing was almost certain at the 2010 Elle Style Awards last night, and that was Alexa Chung was going to be in wearing Chanel.

The TV presenter opted for a baby blue long sleeved Chanel Spring 2010 dress, which had beige floral details and embroidery.

The love for Chanel didn’t stop at the dress, she also carried a beige Chanel quilted bag and two-tone beige Chanel heels.

I loved her hair up in a updo, which is better than how she tends to wear her hair on big occasions.

She really made an effort you could tell she loved her dress.

She was very happy to talk about her dress, but here’s a short video of her talking about her much loved Alexa bag.

Runway To 2010 Elle Style Awards – Carey Mulligan In The Row

Most Conservative Award
After giving us several different looks, Carey Mulligan opted for something more conservative at the 2010 Elle Style Awards last night.

The British actress was front row when the Olsen twins presented their first collection at New York Fashion Week for ‘The Row’, so we shouldn’t be surprised that this look caught her eye.

Carey opted for a blue python jacket which she wore over a black dress both from The Row Fall 2010 collection, which she paired with YSL shoes.

Although I liked this look, I would’ve liked something with a bit more pizazz for this event.

Carey’s very petite in person – for some reason I expect her to be taller – and she’s beautifully well spoken.

That crop gets better everyday.

YES. I’m obsessed.

Runway To 2010 Elle Style Awards – Daisy Lowe In Miu Miu

One thing which struck me about Daisy Lowe is that she’s much taller that I expected when I saw her walk the red carpet at the 2010 Elle Style Awards.

The raven haired model wore a Miu Miu Spring 2010 print dress with a criss cross bodice.

With the detail on the bodice it made it impossible to wear a bra, so my concern was that she was bound to have a wardrobe malfunction at some point during the night.

Let’s pray it didn’t happen for her sake.

Overall it’s a cute dress, but it looked way better on the runway.

Runway To 2010 Elle Style Awards – Kristen Stewart In Emilio Pucci

Not So Moody After All Award
When saw Kristen Stewart arrived at the 2010 Elle Style Awards last night, I was determined to find out if she was a moody as she appears to be.

When I spoke to her in the press room I discovered that she’s painfully shy.

I asked about her look and when answering she did her best to give me eye contact and smile whilst talking.

I think she made a better effort on the red carpet last night.

She had more confidence and she smiled more on the red carpet wearing an Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 mini dress with an embellished bodice.

Her dress was paired with Bally “Amantea” criss-cross ankle strap sandals.

I really liked her look in the press room when she added a 1020 by Nicole leather jacket.

She looked much more comfortable wearing this jacket.

Kristen was at this event to collect the “Woman of the Year” Awards, fresh from winning her BAFTA Rising Star award on Sunday.
