Hollywood Style Awards celebrate Tinseltown fashion icons
Here's what the Beautiful People did last night (and, it goes without saying, you didn't): Hayden Panettiere, Kelly Osbourne, Kim Kardashian (pictured), Max Azria and David LaChappelle were among the celebs honored at the 6th Annual Hollywood Style Awards on Sunday. The event, sponsored by EXPRESS, Sebastian Professional and Dawn (the hand renewal lotion, not the time of day or Tony Orlando's singers) and hosted by Samantha Harris, paid tribute to these and other "style-forward" Hollywood folk in a lavish ceremony at the Armand Hammer Museum.
In addition to the to-die-for honorees already mentioned, such fashion mavens as "Dancing with the Stars'" Cheryl Burke, Brody Jenner, Britt Bardo and Byron Williams were also showered with praise and swag bags filled with baubles from limited edition EXPRESS jewelry as well as products from Fake Bake (I think it's for your tan) and Itty Bitty Bra (I dare not venture a guess). The cornerstone awards were the Breakout Style Visionary, which was bestowed upon Jessica Lowndes of "90210," and the all-new People's Choice Award for Hollywood's Hottest New Couple This Fall, handily won by Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley of "The Vampire Diaries." Television's Most Stylish Show, should you not already know, is "Melrose Place."
Guests also got to enjoy the new HollywoodLife.com -- the online presence of "Hollywood Life Magazine," which created the Style Awards five years ago and has kept fashionable people quite happy ever since.
