Emma Watson was named Style Icon at last night's (14.02.11) Elle Style Awards.
The 'Harry Potter' actress looked stunning in her short Hakaan mini-dress with daring cutaway sides at the star-studded bash at London's Great Connaught Rooms and said she just tried to have fun with fashion.
The 20-year-old beauty - who was presented the accolade by Dame Vivienne Westwood - said: "It feels amazing. Fashion is something that I love. I try not to think about it too much. I try and block all that off and I just do what I love and just have fun with it. I've definitely been feeling the pressure a bit more recently but it's just fun for me."
Elle UK editor Lorraine Candy praised Emma for her individuality, saying: "She's got a very distinct individual look. We always say at Elle, 'It's not what you wear, it's the way you wear it', and she's got such spirit, Emma. I think that makes her stylish."
While Emma won the Style Icon award, Tom Ford was named Top International Designer, with Christopher Kane collecting the accolade for Best British Designer.
