Usually at Hollywood awards shows, actors honor each other, with a director or producer tossed in for good measure. But Monday at L.A.’s Smashbox Studios during the Hollywood Style Awards presented by the Palazzo Las Vegas, the tables were turned a bit, as stars celebrated the artists who make them look their best when the cameras aren’t rolling.
Presenting the evening’s top awards were stylish stars such as Zoe Saldana, Mandy Moore, Rose McGowan, Kristin Davis and Eva Longoria, who paid tribute to their hair stylist, makeup artist, colorist, wardrobe stylist and photographer, respectively.
Longoria, who proved sometimes pain is beauty, struggled to take the stage in a curve-hugging frock. She joked, “I can’t walk in this dress! It’s Victoria Beckham so you know its size negative four.” But after collecting herself, the Desperate Housewives star introduced photographer of the year Randall Slavin, saying, “If it was up to me I’d have the whole world see me how Randall Slavin does. He has the ability to make a girl look persuasive and fierce and fragile and delicate and a million other things that you never thought could be possible.”

Taking the evening’s top award was designer of the year Alice Temperley of Temperley London, who recently received an MBE from Queen Elizabeth and famously created Pippa Middleton’s emerald green gown for the Royal Wedding reception.
“It was amazing to go into Buckingham Palace and meet [The Queen] and now the flattery of being on the other side of the planet being honored for what we do especially when you work so bloody hard … it’s a big compliment,” she said after accepting her trophy from fellow Brit and London neighbor, Alice Eve.
Jaime King presented teen Chloë Moretz with the one to watch award, and Khloé Kardashian Odom had the honor of awarding half-siblings Kendall and Kylie Jenner with the stylish sisters trophy. “Kendall and Kylie are incredibly bright, down-to-earth and amazingly stylish. I really wish I was that stylish at their age,” she told the crowd. “I still take inspiration from them now.”
