Dame Judi Dench has received a Lifetime Achievement award from influential style magazine Harper's Bazaar.

The 76-year-old actress - who currently stars as James Bond's boss M in the Bond film franchise - was given the gong at the fashion magazine's Women of the Year Awards at Claridge's Hotel in London tonight.

The woman who created the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress - creative director of fashion brand Alexander McQueen Sarah Burton - was named Designer of the Year, while Oscar-nominated film director Tom Ford received the award for a Man in a Woman's World.

Jessie J received the award for Breakthrough of the Year, Tracy Emin was named Visionary of the Year and Helena Bonham-Carter took the Role Model of the Year prize.

The International Woman of the Year title went to Arianna Huffington, co-founder of the news website The Huffington Post.

Other winners included supermodels Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigova, Yasmin Le Bon and Cindy Crawford who were collectively named Fashion Icons of the Year.
