Yes, the ELLE Style Awards really are as fun and glamorous as they look.

In a room full of the most stylish and talented people, exciting and outlandish things are sure to happen.

Here are some of the ELLE team's favourite memories from over the years...

Lorraine Candy, Editor in Chief

I loved sitting between Sarah Brown (the then Prime ministers wife) and Courtney Love - two people I never imagined in the same room together!

When Jonny Johansson from Acne broke into song when accepting his Contemporary Brand of the Year award last year, it was both hilariously funny and completely unexpected - the man can sing!

Phoebe Sing, Acting Junior Designer

While she was waiting to have her photograph taken in the backstage studio last year, Alexa Chung turned to me and said, ‘You’re pretty aren't you?’

I could barely get the words ‘Thank you’ out of my mouth and my face went red - not a good ELLE Style Awards look but was the best feeling ever.

Susie Wong, Deputy Chief Sub Editor

As the award for International Designer of the Year was being announced in 2010, I glanced to my left and I saw Burberry's Christopher Bailey waiting to go on stage to collect his award.

I caught his eye and gave him a big congratulatory smile and he smiled back!

Sophie Gridley, Junior Sub Editor

Yes, ELLE Style Awards are star-studded super glamorous affairs. But my best moment, each year, is when, if only for a few moments, you can grab a glass of fizz with Team ELLE, chink glasses and say cheers to another year of hard work (and fun) in the ELLE office.

Because even though the event is about the awards, the celebs, the talent, for me it's also a chance to step back, smile, and remember what an amazing job, team and magazine we have.

Lisa Rahman, Acting Associate Art Director

Watching model Coco Rocha do her thing in the backstage studio shoot was amazing.

She moved faster than I could blink…

Jacqui Cave, Advertising Director

I will never forget ending up in a St John Ambulance after a mishap in my Prada platforms!

Annabel Brog, Editor at Large

When Rosie Huntington-Whiteley strut onto the stage to collect her Style Icon award last year, it was half dance, half walk and 100% pure sex.

Susan Ward-Davies, Travel Editor

At the very first ELLE Style Awards in 1996 , I had organised the after party in the old Atlantic Bar in London and Mark Owen asked if he could come in. Who could say no?

Stacey Duguid, Executive Fashion Editor

My favourite moment is unprintable. So I will go with the time I was in the loo and I looked round to see Cate Blanchet. We shared a hand towel and had a lovely chat and then Tracy Emin joined in.
