The Elle Style Awards were held at the Westbourne Grove in West London on February 12th, 2008 , and Kylie Minogue took home Elle’s “Woman of the Year” award.
Keira Knightley snagged “Best Actress” of 2007 for her recent role in war film Atonement, and her fellow Atonement star James McAvoy won “Best Actor.” Elle’s style icon award went to Kate Hudson.
Lilly Allen was also there, looking cute as a button. The UK’s Daily Mail has photos of all of the stars in attendance smiling for cameras on the red carpet.
Kylie, breast cancer survivor, musical talent and fashion inspiration, is actually immortalized in bronze in a statue by sculptor Peter Corlett, which is on permanent display in Melbourne, Australia (Minogue’s birthplace). And speaking of Madame Tussauds, Kylie has more Tussauds wax sculptures than any other individual besides Queen Elizabeth II.
Kate Hudson was given Style Icon prize for her “distinctive and kooky” fashion sense and she displayed it perfectly by turning up in an stunningly elegant longsleeved white keyhole dress.
British supermodel Agyness Deyn was given the best model prize for being a “chameleon of fashion” while Foundations star Kate Nash was also rewarded for her style.
Former Moloko singer Roisin Murphy performed at the ceremony, becoming the first-ever musical accompaniment for the annual awards.
