Kylie Minogue stole the show at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards, where she collected a top gong.

The pop princess won the Gentlewoman Of The Year trophy at the star-studded bash in Berlin.

Kylie, 45, wore a white ruffled flamenco-style gown by Nina Ricci, teamed with an elegant updo and gold heels, reported the Daily Mail.

Editor-in-chief Jose Redondo-Vega explained why Kylie, 45, was picked for the honour, saying she had become "the dream woman and icon for several generations".

"She is the embodiment of a pop icon and has reinvented herself for each decade. And yet Kylie Minogue the person never disappears behind an artificial facade. It is precisely the ease of her music that makes it so profound," he said.

Meanwhile, David Beckham was named Stylish Man Of The Year.

The football star, who wore a dark suit and a pencil tie on the red carpet, was presented with the gong for his "trendsetting and sometimes daring appearances".

Other stars at the event included Blurred Lines singer Robin Thicke and Twilight actor Kellan Lutz.

Singer Anastacia made one of her first appearances since battling breast cancer, and was given a special humanitarian award for her charity Anastacia Fund.

Last month the US singer announced that she'd undergone a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
