Ultimate Perry grabs award

KATY Perry and Gemma Arterton were among those honoured at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year Awards 2010 last night (02.11.10).

The 'Firework' singer was named Ultimate International Music Star, while Gemma was given the Ultimate Film Actress accolade at the ceremony at London's Banqueting House in Whitehall.

Though the ceremony recognises the achievements of women, two men were also honoured.

'Glee' star Mark Salling was named Ultimate Hottie, while rapper Dizzee Rascal received the coveted Ultimate Man of the Year honour.

Speaking at the event, Dizzee said: "There's a lot of hotties here, Kelly Brook told me she was single, there's a lot going on!"

The 'Dance Wiv Me' rapper has earlier posed on the red carpet with 'Piranha 3D' actress, who also praised Dizzee for his dapper appearance.

She said: "He does look good. He's very handsome too and very sweet and charming."

Plus-sized model Crystal Renn was named Ultimate Catwalk Queen, while 'Mad Men' actress Christina Hendricks was named Ultimate US TV Actress.

Taking home the Ultimate UK TV Actress gong was 'Doctor Who' star Karen Gillan, while 'Bad Boys' singer Alexandra Burke won Ultimate UK Music Star.

Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts took home the Ultimate Fashionista title, and was joined at the star-studded ceremony by her bandmate Kimberley Walsh, who was one of the judges who selected the non=celebrity winners. She was joined on the panel by Cosmopolitan's agony aunt, Irma Kurtz, businesswoman and TV star Karren Brady, radio presenter Reggie Yates and former Spice Girls singer Mel B.

Cosmopolitan's Editor Louise Court - who headed the group of judges - said: "I have been honoured to once again celebrate the achievements of such deserving people. The women that have been recognised tonight are truly inspirational and all embody the 'fun and fearless' spirit of the magazine."
