All eyes were on the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards 2015 red carpet tonight as some of the biggest female names arrived to pick up their coveted prizes.

Ellie Goulding bagged the Musician Award - with a nod to her hugely successful hit Love Me Like You Do – while Lara Stone picked up the Model Award, after landing 13 magazine covers and 22 advertising campaigns in one year. That’s a no mean feat.

In the acting stakes, Lily James won best breakthrough (Good news: She’s also coming back to Downton Abbey) while her co-star Michelle Dockery picked up the award for Television Icon for her role as Mary in the hit* ITV* period drama. Kate Winslet was a big winner and walked away with the British Icon Award, with Harper’s giving her the award in honour of her incredible career.


Actress Ruth Wilson was awarded with a gong for Outstanding Performance after her role in The Affair, Sienna Miller bagged the award for Best British Actress and Nicole Kidman was honoured with Theatre Icon for her work treading the boards.

Mary Katrantzou was given the Breakthrough Designer Award while Claire Waight Keller (the creative director of Chloe) was handed their Designer of the year gong. Hannah Rothschild bagged the Contribution to the Arts Award, Karen Elson was celebrated for Philanthropy and last, but no means least, was independent London designer Erdem Moralioglu who won Man of the Year.
