Nicole Kidman named Woman Of The Year

Actress praised for her work to end violence against women

Nicole Kidman was recognised for her charity work at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards in New York last night.

The actress, 41, picked up the Woman Of The Year accolade for her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNIFEM, an organisation that raises awareness about violence against women.

Wearing a white floor-length gown, she looked radiant as she accepted her gong.

'It's such a privilege,' Nicole says. 'I feel a little overwhelmed.'

Other stars who attended the awards included Natalie Portman, 27, Kate Bosworth, 25, and America Ferrera, 24.

Meanwhile, Nicole is being lined up to play a post-op transsexual in new movie The Danish Girl.
