Jessica Ennis wins Glamour Women of the Year Award - VIDEO

Waiting for Video...
 

Jess Ennis is not just a world champion athlete - she’s a bit of a head-turner too.

She donned her fanciest clothes at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards where she was feted as Sportswoman of the Year.

The track and field superstar, who is becoming quite a celebrity on London’s red carpets certainly enjoyed the glittering event.

On Twitter, she wrote: “Had a brilliant night at the #GlamourAwards with the girls. Great to win Sportswoman of the year!”

Ennis has also been shortlisted in the same category for July 4’s MBNA Northern Sports Awards 2011.

But this weekend its back to work, competing in the hurdles and long jump in New York’s Adidas Grand Prix on Saturday.

Dannii Minogue says she is “over the moon” after being crowned TV Personality of the Year at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards - despite her exit from The X Factor.

The Australian judge, aged 39, who had to quit the ITV1 show after learning that the auditions schedule clashed with her work on Australia’s Got Talent, won the accolade at last night’s Glamour Women of the Year event.

The mother-of-one, who recently played down rumours of a split with boyfriend Kris Smith, accepted the honour in a video acceptance speech.

Later she wrote on Twitter: “Over the moon to receive TV Personality award for third time from readers of @GlamourMagUK. Icing on the cake for doing something I LOVE! Dx.”

Two minutes later she added that her last year on The X Factor had been “magical” with one of her acts, Matt Cardle, winning the 2010 show.

The bash, hosted by actor James Corden, also saw Sarah Burton, who created the ivory wedding gown worn by the Duchess of Cambridge at April’s royal wedding, win Designer of the Year.

Burton, who is Alexander McQueen’s creative director, also created Pippa Middleton’s dress, which prompted admiration for the maid of honour’s slinky silhouette, particularly her posterior.

Big Brother-turned-Million Pound Drop host Davina McCall won Presenter of the Year, with the award presented to her by Dermot O’Leary.

Singer Adele, who has dominated both the US and British charts, was named UK Solo Artist of the Year.

Pregnant singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham was named Accessory Designer of the Year.

Film Actress of the Year went to former Bond girl Gemma Arterton while Jonathan Ross’s wife, screenwriter and producer Jane Goldman, took Filmmaker of the Year.

Outstanding Contribution went to Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks, singer Jessie J was crowned Woman of Tomorrow, Kim Kardashian was Entrepreneur of the Year, and Miranda Hart was Comedy Actress of the Year.

Pandora Breakthrough of the Year was won by Ellie Goulding, Writer of the Year went to actress, writer and comedienne Dawn French, and Band of the Year was The Saturdays.

The awards, the result of over 100,000 votes, took place at London’s Berkeley Square Gardens.
