See the full list of winners here...

Kylie Minogue, Jessie J and Kelly Rowland were among the winners at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards last night (29th May).

The Aussie babe took home the biggest accolade of the night for Outstanding Contribution, receiving a huge round of applause as she collected the gong from Scissor Sisters star, Jake Shears.

Dressed in a gold, glitzy Stella McCartney gown, Minogue said of her award: "I don't know how I ended up here when I started out in dungarees (in Neighbours) pretending I could fix a car. I nearly blew up my first car as I didn't realise it had water and oil and all that stuff."

Kylie added that she "hoped to become a better woman. Like my grandma. She's really my icon. I'd like to dedicate this to my grandma and mother".

Jessie J picked up the trophy for best Solo Artist from her The Voice co-star Will.I.Am, stating: "I'm loving that last year I was a girl and this year I'm a woman. I've got my bum out more."

Despite quitting The X Factor judging panel, Kelly Rowland was named TV Personality of the Year, with source telling The Metro that the 31-year old singer jetted back to London to collection the gong in person.

They claimed: "There was never any question that Kelly connected with the public. This award was voted for by the public."

"When she heard she won, Kelly wanted to fly straight back to say a big thank you to her British fans. She wanted to make sure there was no beef between her and them - she loves the British public."

Other big winners on the night included Holly Willoughby who was named Best Presenter, Amanda Holden for Theatre Actress and Florence + the Machine, who took home the Best Band award.

Avengers actor Tom Hiddleston was crowned Man of the Year, as Fearne Cotton picked up the gong for Best Radio Personality.

US stars Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria and Lea Michele were also triumphant, with Dionne Warwick flew over from America to collect the prestigious Icon gong from Rolling Stones star, Ronnie Wood.
