We had no red carpets to ohh and ahh over about a month ago, but now awards season is in full swing. The Elle Style Awards 2008 were held in London last night, and it was where actresses and models posed with designers. Keira Knightley took home the best actress prize and walked the red carpet dressed in head to toe black with a black coat hiding what could have been a pretty black dress underneath. Naomi Campbell in a strapless embroidered mini dress was photographed by British designer, Jonathan Saunders. Kylie Minogue, Elle's 2008 Woman of the Year, wore a olive green Grecian dress, belted down at the waist with a black belt with white floral detail. Meanwhile Kate Hudson, Elle's 2008 Style Icon, wore a floor length-long sleeve white gown with key hole detail and a chain necklace. She also showed off her new fringe with Stella McCartney in a black dress and black blazer by her side.

Also on the red carpet was Luella Bartley with Lily Allen in a pink floral tea dress paired with the prettiest pair of blue satin pumps, while Pixie Geldof gave her sister Peaches a run for her money in her white pleated mini skirt, black satin singlet top, pink rosette, black socks, black mary-janes and chain necklace. I loved her rock chick look - though th eye make up was a bit much. Agyness Deyn rocked a hot pink coat and striped tights on the red carpet, as well as best bud, Henry Holland on her arm. Sophie Ellis Bextor also made an appearance in a white ruffled collar dress - cute, but there is too going on.

My favourite look of the night had to be Kate Hudson - elegant and showed just enough skin to be sexy.
