Los Angeles – Katy Perry has been crowned Woman of the Year at the 2014 Elle Style Awards.

The Dark Horse hit maker was presented with the honour by Kylie Minogue at the glitzy ceremony at One Embankment in London last night.

It was in recognition of her efforts to empower women across the world and her huge success in the music industry.

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. He 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 hit maker and Oscar-nominee Pharrell won the International Recording Artist trophy while Harry Potter star Emma Watson (23) was named Actress of the Year.
