Models! Actresses! Designers! Oh, my! The 2012 Elle Style Awards brought out the hottest names in fashion Monday night in London at the Savoy Hotel. The 15th annual show, hosted by Alexa Chung, celebrated some of the biggest names in the industry, including Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton.
Sarah Burton was given the International Designer of the Year award while supermodel Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley nabbed the Style Icon award.
No surprise there. Burton gained worldwide fame after being chosen to design Kate Middleton's wedding dress for the Royal Wedding in April 2011. The stunning ivory silk gown was one of the most breathtaking pieces created in recent times and Burton instantly rose to superstardom. One can always use remakes as a barometer for fame. The doppelgangers of Kate Middleton's and Pippa Middleton's dresses flew off the shelves at Net-a-porter.
Huntington-Whiteley has been a style icon since stepped onto the scene with Victoria's Secret in 2006. The stunning English rose blends classic pieces with rock star edge to create a look that is entirely her own. Plus, those killer good looks don't hurt.
Alexa Chung hosted the annual UK publication's event, which allows fans to vote for their favorite style stars. Chung, who is a style icon entirely unto herself, graced the Savoy Hotel on the Strand's red carpet wearing a gray plaid suit, white button down shirt and black pumps. Adorable.
Other winners of the night included Acne for Contemporary Brand of the Year; Isabeli Fontana for Best Model; Nicholas Kirkwood for Accessory Designer of the Year; and Jonathan Saunders for British Designer of the Year.
