Kylie Minogue has been named woman of the year and entrepreneur of the year at the annual Glamour magazine awards as rumours swirl that she and her beau Andres Velencoso have become engaged.

Looking voluptuous in a little black dress, Minogue, 41, took out two awards at the magazine’s annual Women of the Year event, which was held at London’s Berkeley Square Gardens. Minogue was snapped effortlessly getting out of a black limo in gold strapless high heels.

Scottish TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher drew attention in a transparent weave body-hugging dress that was reported to turn see-thru under the flashlights. Minogue’s dress, meanwhile, featured a serpent-like gold applique.

A friend of Minogue’s was reported saying the pop star was keeping her cool about the engagement rumour, which gained momentum when it was revealed she was about to buy a Spanish villa. “Everyone kept asking her if she was engaged but she was keeping coy,” the friend said.

X Factor judge Cheryl Cole was named TV personality of the year, while Michelle Ryan of EastEnders won UK actress of the year. Katy Perry showed up in a sky blue satin cocktail frock to be named newcomer of the year. She was snapped clowning with Britain’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan.

Others in attendance were Fearne Cotton – named radio personality of the year – Alexa Chung and Rachel Stevens.
