Best pals Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts have been named Hollywood's style queens at Britain's Elle Style Awards.

The actresses were named Woman of The Year and Most Stylish Actress respectively at the ceremony at London's NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM on Monday night (16FEB04).

Other big stars single out for style prizes included actor Paul Bettany (Most Stylish Actor), Vivienne Westwood (Lifetime Achievement Award) and ALEK WEK (Top Model).

In accepting their honour for Most Stylish Band, Brit rockers The Darkness made light of their fashion skills.

Singer Justin Hawkins joked, "I remember being at school, putting scarves around my neck and people saying to me 'Who the f**k do you think you are?' And I would say, 'My name is Justin Hawkins. I may be a f**k but one day I will be a rich f**k, and people will admire my scarf-wearing abilities.'

"I think this is a vindication of that attitude. I trust in the good people of this nation, and I know that if we don't win anything at the Brits then there'll be an outcry of some sort."
