LONDON - Harry Potter star Emma Watson has been named as Style Icon at the Elle Style Awards at London’s Great Connaught Rooms.
Watson, 20, wore a nude mini dress with daring cutaway sides to the bash, and was presented Style Icon gong by designer Vivienne Westwood.
The young star said she was overwhelmed to be called a “style icon” and tried not to focus on having her style emulated by young girls.
“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,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
“I’ve definitely been feeling the pressure a bit more recently but it’s just fun for me,” she stated.
Elle editor Lorraine Candy praised Watson for her individuality.
“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,” she added. (ANI)
