ELLE Style Awards

Katy Perry wins ELLE Woman Of The Year

By Team ELLE

Katy Perry has been named ELLE Woman Of The Year at the ELLE Style Awards.

The award tops off a spectacular 12 months for the singer, whose third album topped charts worldwide, and saw its lead single, , sell over eight million copies globally (earworm rating: 10 out of 10).

Katy proves that smart women can make it: earlier this month, she was named the 5th Top Global Recording Artist of 2013 by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, making her the highest-ranking woman on the list.

She also shows that you don’t have to conform, that a sense of humour is sexy (as her Roar video proves), and that you can support, rather than compete, with your contemporaries – she loves, and supports, women.

Last year also saw Katy, who starred on our September 2013 cover, become the most-followed artist on Twitter. The reason? Her down-to-earth attitude, determination and talent: she is the everywoman, hear her roar.
