US pop star Katy Perry has been crowned Woman Of The Year at the 2014 Elle Style Awards in London.

Roar singer Perry was presented with her gong by Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue at the glamorous award ceremony in London.

The 29-year-old I Kissed A Girl singer is known for her campaign work for gay rights and her support of same-sex marriage.

Perry, who divorced British comedian Russell Brand in 2011 after just 14 months of marriage, recently recorded duet Who You Love with boyfriend John Mayer.

Guests including model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne, singer Ellie Goulding, former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko and designer Tom Ford were treated to a champagne reception, a 1950s supper club menu and table butler service at the magazine's 17th annual celebration of style.

Lily Allen, who recently returned to the music scene after taking a break to become a mother, was named Female UK Recording Artist of the Year, while Tinie Tempah - who earlier this week high-fived the Duke of Cambridge as he performed at the Baftas - took home the title of Male UK Recording Artist of the Year.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson was awarded Actress of the Year and Happy singer Pharrell Williams was presented with the gong for International Recording Artist.
