Former Hole singer Courtney Love was named Woman of the Year, while Sienna Miller flew the flag for Britain, taking the Elle Style Icon gong in recognition of her “unique, fashion forward style”.

Following the success of their album 'Only By The Night', the Kings of Leon accepted their award for best music via Video link.
