Katy Perry has been crowned the Woman of the Year at the 2014 Elle Style Awards.
The 'Dark Horse' hitmaker was presented with the honour, in recognition of her efforts to empower women across the world and her huge success in the music industry, by Kylie Minogue at the glitzy ceremony at One Embankment in London on Tuesday night (18.02.14).
'The Voice' UK coach, 45, was clearly thrilled to meet the 29-year-old star as she shared a photograph of them at the event on Twitter shortly afterwards, writing: "I presented the 1&only @katyperry with her @ELLEUK Woman of the Year award. Con-grats and con-kittens!! (sic)"
Meanwhile, 'Thor' star Tom Hiddleston, 33, was named the magazine's Man of the Year and sent a video message expressing his gratitude, as he was unable to attend the event.
Other big winners were Lily Allen and Tinie Tempah, who were named the female and male UK Recording Artists of the Year.
'Happy' hitmaker and Oscar-nominee Pharrell won the International Recording Artist trophy, while 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson, 23, was named Actress of the Year.
