Celebrities including Lily AllenPharrell Williams and designer Christopher Kane were big winners at the ELLE Style Awards 2014.

 LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (FEBRUARY 18, 2014) (ELLE) - Some of the world's most famous performers gathered in London on Tuesday (February 18) to attend the ELLE Style Awards 2014.

Lily Allen, who returned to music in 2013 following a hiatus, dedicated her 'UK Recording ArtistFemale' award to her two children.

"Yeah, no, yeah, I'm just very happy. I'm just very happy and feel very humble to be back," Allen told Reuters Television.

Scottish designer, Christopher Kane, collected 'British Designer of the Year' and much of his success was down to his upbringing.

"I suppose I'm from a really hard-working background in Scotland. I was brought up this way and I'll always remain that way. It's really quite fundamental to how I grew up and I'll never really change. I never really lost my accent either and people are always really surprised to hear that. Like, "You're still Scottish?" And I was, "Yeah. That's obvious." No, I was very lucky, I've got a great background and huge support from my sister, Tammy, who is also my partner in crime," he said.

Pharrell Williams, who won the record of the year Grammy Award in January along with Daft Punkand Nile Rodgers for the song "Get Lucky", won 'International Recording Artist'.

Williams had high praise for model Cara Delevingne, who he was pictured with for the September 2013 issue of British Vogue Magazine.

"I just knew I wanted to work with her because she, just, was different. And then when I met her I went, oh yeah, cool, I'm good. I'm all the way good. And then when I realised how much more talent was there, instantly, you know, in it, I was in it."

British model, Suki Waterhouse, won 'Model of the Year', following in the footsteps of the likes ofAnja Rubik and Agyness Deyn.

"What makes a good model? Perseverance. Just trying to keep happy. It's not easy. It's not easy. I've been doing it since I was 16. It's really not easy. So this is a nice part. Just rocking it, you know? Just go there and have a good connection with the photographer. They get the best stuff out of you. And just keep your head up," said the 22-year-old.

And Australian singer, Kylie Minogue, was at the show to hand Katy Perry her 'ELLE Woman of the Year' award.
