Campbell honoured at style awards

Naomi Campbell was given the Outstanding Contribution award at last night's Elle Style Awards.

The 39-year-old supermodel - who was wearing a dress by the late Alexander McQueen - was given the honour in recognition of her 25-year career and the work she does for safe pregnancy charity The White Ribbon Alliance (WRA), of which she is the global patron.

Sarah Brown - wife of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown - presented Naomi with the award, describing her as "a woman who has campaigned tirelessly on behalf of the WRA".

During the London ceremony, Kylie Minogue gave her sister Dannii the TV star award for her role as a judge on UK talent show 'The X Factor'.

Dannii recently announced she was expecting her first baby with boyfriend Kris Smith and admitted she was struggling to find clothes to fit her.

Looking radiant in a yellow flowing Grecian-style Lisa Ho dress, she said:

"I've just gone stage one with the wardrobe where no jeans fit. Can't get any of them on and you buy jeans with stretchy bits at the front. The rest, I don't even know how it works.

"I really don't know how I'm going to approach any of it yet."

Pregnant Claudia Schiffer was named Model of the Year while BAFTA winners Carey Mulligan and Colin Firth were named Actress and Actor of the year respectively.

'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart won the Woman of the Year Award and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen scooped Style Icons of 2010.
