Our ELLE Style Awards Moments...

Jenny Dickinson, Beauty Director

This morning the ELLE office is buzzing with weird and wonderful stories from last night’s very own ELLE Style Awards. Here are some of our favourite moments, click here to see all the outfits on ELLE TV.


Jenny Dickinson, Beauty Director

For me it was just all the love in the room. Henry Holland squeezing ELLE’s Ed-in-chief around the waist between awards, a post-acceptance speech Colin Firth going back to the table to kiss his wife before having his picture taken, Kylie jumping up and down with excitement when she got to present an award to sister Dannii. Oh, and Claire Danes was impressively unstarry – she walked straight in and went to the bar to get herself a drink before complimenting another partygoer on her dress.

Laura Davies, Sub-Editor

While rocking out to the Hot Rats, I accidentally bumped into the woman next to me. As I turned to apologise, I realised it was Pearl Lowe dancing with daughter Daisy, Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof, Jaime Winstone, Melanie Blatt and Rosie Huntington-Whitely. I was in a hot celebrity dance-off. I lost.

Megan McCluskie, Bookings Assistant

Ooh-ing and aah-ing over Alexa Chung’s Chanel frock as we eavesdropped on her making party plans with Pixie, Aggy and Henry while lounging on the leather sofas in the bathroom.

Katie Mulloy, Commissioning Editor

I can’t choose one moment so I’m choosing three! 1. Colin Firth arriving in a white shirt. I wanted to rip his jacket off and throw him in a lake. 2. Christopher Bailey being totally lovely and charming and his fashion love-off with Roland Mouret. 3. Seeing Dannii and Kylie together and how much they love each other. They walked into the press room 'shimmying' together.

Hannah Swerling, Editor-in-Chief's PA/Editorial Assistant

Seeing an endearingly nervous Nicholas Hoult having a quiet moment on his own, trying to plan what to say when presenting Colin Firth with his best actor award.

Susannah Edwards, Beauty Intern

At one point, I looked around the press room to see Claudia Schiffer being interviewed, Naomi Campbell and Sarah Brown having their photos taken, the Olsen girls tottering about and Colin Firth  relaxing at the bar with Nicholas Hoult. Not bad for one night!
