Still spinning around from her romantic 41st birthday trip to Rome with Spanish boyfriend Andres Velencoso last week, Kylie Minogue had another treat in store for her in London. The pop dynamo was the big news at a magazine awards ceremony, where she was presented with two gongs – woman of the year and entrepreneur of the year.
The topic Kylie – on divinely sexy form in an LBD and feathered wrap - was really keen to focus on, though, was her Italian holiday.
"My birthday holiday was divine, absolutely wonderful," she enthused. "I got really spoilt, a girl should get spoilt. I'm really very happy at the moment."
The diva also spilled the beans on the progress of her Spanish lessons, saying: "I'm not doing too badly… but I'm not going to embarrass myself by practising here."
While Kylie's radiant appearance was the talk of ceremony a host of other celebs were also picking up prizes and sipping champagne. Michelle Ryan, actress of the year for her role in Merlin, designer du jour Henry Holland, Alexa Chung and Fearne Cotton all adding glamour to the glitzy event.
Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried, funky in a multi-coloured mini-dress and gladiator-style stilettos, collected the top award in the film actress category.
