We didn't really need any convincing that Katy Perry is super awesome, but last night it was confirmed as the singer was named Woman of the Year at the Elle Style Awards.

The Roar singer was on-hand to collect her award in person at the annual awards bash, arriving at the event looking suitably elegant in a floral print Vivienne Westwood Prestige dress.

The fashion mag said it chose Katy for the title because she “proves that smart women can make it”, adding, “she also shows that you don't have to conform, that a sense of humour is sexy... and that you can support, rather than compete, with your contemporaries.”

The gong tops a pretty terrific 12 months for the singer, following the success of her third album, Prism, which topped charts the world over, and her single Roar, which sold over eight million copies globally.

Elsewhere at the glam event the likes of  Cara Delevingne, Emma Watson and Rita Ora rocked the red carpet.
