Victoria Beckham, Rebel Wilson and Rita Ora were celebrating on Tuesday night (04Jun13) after winning top prizes at the star-studded Glamour Women of the Year awards in the U.K. The 10th annual ceremony at London's Berkeley Square Gardens feted a host of stars including Beckham, who was named Woman of the Decade, and Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, who was voted Man of the Year.
Samantha Barks accepted the Breakthrough Award for her role in hit movie musical Les Miserables from her rumoured beau David Gandy, while actress Rashida Jones was handed the Filmmaker Award by funnyman Chris O'Dowd.
Accepting the Film Actress Award from fellow Australian Kylie Minogue, Bridesmaids star Wilson joked, "Thank you so much Kylie, I just feel so lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky! I'm just excited to receive this award because I was told there was a cash prize... There's not?"
Girls star Zosia Mamet was thrilled with her International TV Actress gong, declaring, "This is the first award I've ever won!" and Joanne Froggatt picked up the U.K. equivalent for her role as Anna Bates in Downton Abbey.
British actress Helen McCrory praised her partner, Homeland hunk Damian Lewis, as she received the Theatre Actress Award for her role in the play The Last Of The Haussmans, insisting, "I'd like to thank my husband, who always stands by me. We've only got one chair in the house."
Presenting the Solo Artist of the Year prize to Rita Ora, model Cara Delevingne gushed, "I genuinely don't know anyone who deserves this more. She's my best friend," while Jason Derulo stepped onstage to crown The Saturdays the Best Band.
Other winners included Jessie J (Editor's Special Award), pop star-turned-TV presenter Myleene Klass (Entrepreneur Award) and Nicole Scherzinger (TV Personality Award for Britain's The X Factor).
The funnyman presented the Overcoming Adversity award to Royal Marine hero Captain Si Maxwell, who lost his leg during combat in Afghanistan, at the The Sun newspaper's annual Military Awards - and Gervais was overcome with emotion during the prizegiving, which recognises the contributions of troops.
He says, "I was crying after the first one. I didn't think I was going to sit at the table and blub (cry), but it was so humbling for me. I wasn't ready for what a wimp I was. I cried immediately, I was a wreck. I'm dehydrated from crying."
In a post on his Twitter.com page after the event, Gervais added, "Possibly the most humbling, moving, yet fun and uplifting event of my life. An honour."
Kevin Spacey, supermodel Elle Macpherson and veteran British actor Sir David Jason were also among the presenters at the ceremony, which was attended by stars including Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne and singer-turned-TV presenter Myleene Klass.
British royal Charles, Prince of Wales was also at the prizegiving, and he admitted he feared for the safety of his sons, Princes William and Harry, when they are serving in war zones.
He says, "I really do understand the worry of service families when their loved ones are away serving in somewhere like Afghanistan. It's almost easier for those serving away than for those left behind because you worry all the time.
"So I do appreciate the extraordinary resilience and the unbelievable support provided by the families back here who encourage and remind their loved ones that they are there for them, despite what they are having to put up with."
Prince Harry is currently in Afghanistan working as an Apache helicopter co-pilot, while Prince William serves as an RAF search and rescue helicopter captain.
The star, who appeared on U.K. shows Bargain Hunt and Flog It!, passed away in hospital in Coventry, England on Wednesday (25Jul12) after suffering a stroke last week (ends22Jul12).
Confirming the news in a Facebook.com message, Barby's friend and fellow TV antiques expert David Harper writes, "I've had several messages today regarding my wonderful old friend David Barby and I'm very sad to confirm that he passed away... after suffering a stroke 10 days ago - we'll miss him terribly."
British pop star Myleene Klass also took to Twitter.com to pay tribute to the TV star, tweeting, "Just heard the sad news about David 'Barbarella' Barby. RIP great man."
The soccer ace took two of his sons, Brooklyn and Romeo, to The Sun newspaper's annual Military Awards, which recognises the contributions of troops.
Beckham applauded Flight Lieutenant Mike Anderson, who won the Most Outstanding Airman award for enduring a gun and mortar attack to reach six Afghan children, declaring, "Everyone is very proud of the guys who put their lives on the line for their country. It's a great night to honour the brave."
Prince William's wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was moved to tears by the soldiers' stories, while her husband told Sergeant Ryan McCready, the recipient of the the Most Outstanding Soldier award, "You exemplify the unique qualities that make the British soldier second to none."
Walliams also presented an award and said, "It's an honour to be here. These guys really risk their lives for their country."
Other guests included McFly rocker Harry Judd, as well as singers Alesha Dixon, Myleene Klass and Peter Andre.
Dame Helen Mirren is a great example of how you don't need to be blonde and busty to have a desirable body in Hollywood. The Oscar-winning actress was named "Body of the Year" by 2,000 people who were part of an L.A. Fitness Survey. Oh, and did I mention that she is 66 years old? Much like a fine wine, this class act only gets better with age. Mirren beat out model Elle MacPherson, who came in a not-even-close second place, Kelly Brook, who came in third, and even Jennifer Lopez, who came in fourth place. The actress even out-shined Pippa Middleton's butt which has been the hype of most tabloid photos. Mirren's certainly proving that age is nothing but a number.
As far as the hottest male guys go, the results weren't all that shocking (except for Hasseloff ranking above Reynolds -- what's with that?). The infamously hot soccer stud, David Beckham, came out on top, putting him ahead of hunk actors Daniel Craig in second place, followed by Johnny Depp in third.
