Leave it to the Elle Style Awards to give awards season a refreshing sartorial twist.

Hosted by Alexa Chung, in a blue printed, midriff-baring Yves Saint Laurent dress, the February 14 ceremony in London recognized the fashion industry's best-dressed stars and most buzzworthy designers, Elle U.K. reports.

Dame Vivienne Westwood joked (we hope) "Who's Emma Watson?" as she handed the Harry Potter star—wearing a short off-white Hakaan cutaway dress—the Style Icon award.

Also bringing home trophies were a blue Pucci-clad Blake Lively (Best TV Star), Tom Ford (International Designer), Coco Rocha (Model), Helena Christensen (Outstanding Contribution to Fashion), Christopher Kane (British Designer), Emma Hill of Mulberry (Accessories), Dominic Jones (Jewelry Designer), Meadham Kirchoff (Next Young Designer), Cheryl Cole (Music), Natalie Portman (Actress), and Noomi Rapace (Breakthrough).

'It feels amazing," Watson said of her award.

"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."
