The supermodel Naomi Campbell - who won the Outstanding Contribution at this week's Elle Style Awards - admires the 'Material Girl' singer Madonna's fashion sense and her ability to reinvent herself time after time.

She said: "I think my style icons are people that reinvent themselves - they come back with a different look, a different vibe, a different sound and Madonna is definitely one of those people.

"It's just amazing to watch her through all these decades-she just keeps coming back."

Naomi - who received the award in recognition of her 25-year career and her work with safe pregnancy charity The White Ribbon Alliance (WRA) - also revealed she is a huge fan of Lady Gaga's unique look.

She told people.com: "She's definitely a big style icon for everyone, and it's made everyone go a bit more edgy with their fashion.

"I think Lady Gaga is extremely talented-she is a composer, a pianist, she's an opera singer and she does classical music too. I think we haven't even seen her talent yet."
