Friday evening, the 15th ofย  January, the sixth edition of the Elle Style Awards took place in Amsterdam. The Dutch fashion scene gathered at the Hermitage to see which stylist, celebrity and guest of the evening had the best style.

The dresscode, as well as the whole theme for the evening, was folklore. This lead to a mixed, colorful and multi-colored scene. There were feathers, crazy prints and sequins. Of course we spotted lots of red, fur and eyecatching accessories. We could just sit and stare at all those people for a whole evening. How amazing!

Yet there was more to see at the Hermitage. Three young stylists gave their own fashion show. They each created seven folklore-inspired looks. For these looks they had to use some items from the latest H&M collection and mix and match these items with real designer pieces.

All three stylists had a very strong own style and gave a fantastic show. Lisa Anne Stuyfzand won the award of Elle Stylist Award. During her show the audience already went crazy and applauded several times. Lisa Anne used feather and lace and her models showed a lot of leg. The fun part of her show was the fact that her models carried copper cauldrons as handbags.

Besides the Stylist Award there was the Elle Personal Style Award, which was presented to a Dutch celebrity. Singer Giovanca received this award for her great streetchic/etnic style. The third award of the evening, the Elle Most Sensuous Woman Award, went to the best dressed woman of the evening: model Sylvia van der Klooster in a stunning Fong Leng-creation. Her outfit really stood out and perfectly matched the folklore dresscode.

After the awards were presented it was time for the real party to get started. Together with all guests Elle celebrated another great year of style and fashion.
