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.

Cheryl Cole - who looked striking in a red Alexander McQueen dress - was named Best Music Act and Helena Christensen received the Outstanding Contribution to Fashion by designer Matthew Williamson.

Other winners at the stylish event included Coco Rocha, Natalie Portman and Blake Lively.
