Elle Style Awards 2011 - courtesy of Next

Oh what a night. If you followed my tweet-a-thon last night, you’ll know that I did not spend my Valentine’s Day alone. Thanks to the wonderful people at Next, I spent yesterday evening with Alexa Chung, Tom Ford, Matthew Williamson, Courtney Love and Emma Watson among others at the Elle Style Awards. I still can’t believe I attended THE fashion awards show of the year, the perfect evening to whet my fashion whistle before LFW kicks off. I’m going to keep the post very brief as it’s picture heavy so here are the winners and presenters followed by the pictures I took on the night. The new baby (DSLR) stayed home so apologies for the slightly ropey pics.
