Celebrity spotters on both sides of the Atlantic were spoiled for choice on Monday night with a series of glitzy awards ceremonies taking place in both London and New York.

Bronx-born diva Jennifer Lopez caused quite a stir when she arrived at a fashion industry prizegiving on the arm of her husband Marc Anthony. The Shall We Dance bombshell, who lived up to her reputation for high octane glamour with a strapless white minidress and matching jacket, was joined by Aussie actress Naomi Watts and style guru Tom Ford at the exclusive event.

She wasn't the only A-list stunner turning up the heat in Manhattan, though, as Welsh siren Catherine Zeta-Jones was likewise setting the flashbulbs blazing in nearby Carnegie Hall. The 37-year-old, who was looking youthful in a sequinned black mini, was among a series of A-listers who went along to see some of the world's most courageous people honoured for their inspirational efforts to further women's causes.

Among the other big names in attendance for the event were Rosario Dawson, Sandra Bullock and David Bowie, who was escorting his model wife Iman. The real star of the evening, however, was Cambodian activist Somaly Mam, who was presented with the main prize in recognition of her campaign against forced prostitution.

Across the pond in London, meanwhile, another human rights activist was receiving plaudits. Bono and his U2 bandmates were given the lifetime achievement trophy at this year's Q Awards, while British rockers Oasis took home the trophy for best act. Newcomer Corinne Bailey Rae received the best newcomer prize, while Jamelia, the Sugababes and Girls Aloud, who were all in attendance, added a touch of glamour to the proceedings.
