Ellie Simmonds at the 2016 The Pride of Britain Awards held at the Grosvenor Hotel, London, United Kingdom - Monday 31st October 2016
Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum are adding to their brood! The Mirror have pictured Sophie and Jamie together at the Harper’s Bazaar’s Women of the Year awards bash at Claridge’s in London. Sophie was sporting not only a beautifully patterned green, blue and black dress but was also sporting a bit of a baby bump, too. The actress and TV cook confirmed that she and jazz singer Jamie are indeed awaiting a new arrival. They already have a daughter, Lyra, who was born in March 2011.
The couple attended the glamorous awards ceremony, which also boasted guests such as Erin O’Connor and Yasmin Le Bon, with whom Sophie is already familiar, from her modelling days. The former X Files star Gillian Anderson was also in attendance, as was Rosamund Pike and Daisy Lowe.
Amongst the winners at the Woman of the Year awards were Team GB Olympics athletes Jessica Ennis, Victoria Pendleton and Ellie Simmonds, who were all awarded a British Ambassador of the Year prize. Emily Blunt, Marion Cotillard and Stella Mccartney were all also awarded prizes during the star-studded ceremony. It’s been a successful week for Jessica Ennis, in particular, who was crowned the Ultimate Olympian at the Cosmopolitan’s own awards the nigt before, at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
All of the guests and winners at last night's Harpers Bazaar Women of the Year Awards looked utterly stunning on the red carpet. Many have noted Emily Blunt's show-stopping backless orange number, and how beautiful Daisy Lowe looked in her timelessly-classic sequined gown, but the wardrobes of the guests were not the reason anyone showed up, nor why the awards are so important to the influential women of the world.
"Now we [women] are expected to do everything, which probably isn't human," the Telegraph quotes Stella McCartney saying "and we are in danger of burning out if we try to do everything." A full interview with McCartney, as well as with other winners of the awards, will be published in the December issue of Harper's Bazaar, which will be dedicated to the women. French actress Marion Cotillard will appear on the front cover, with whom the magazine also has a full interview inside.
In a year flush with the monarchy, Queen Elizabeth has also won the accolade of Icon of the Year. The queen has as yet not commented upon this win, but we've no doubt she'll be celebrating in her own way. Ambassadors of the year were awarded to three of this year's Olympic winners, Jessica Ennis, Victoria Pendleton and Ellie Simmons, who have jointly provided brand new, healthy role models for young women today. A special award was given In Memoriam to Marie Colvin who was an American reporter, killed earlier this year while covering the siege of Homs in Syria, where a nail bomb exploded, killing her.
