Jess Carter and Chloe Kelly were among the England football stars who stunned on the red carpet at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

The event honoured the biggest names in music, television, film, sport, and media, with the Lionesses scooping up an award.

Jess and Chloe were joined by their England teammates Bethany England and Alessio Russo to pick up the Sports Icons Award on behalf of the England team, with the magazine praising the team's incredible run to the Women's World Cup final.

England defender Jess looked incredible as she posed wearing a black sparkly floor-length gown as she posed for pictures with her partner, Germany football star Ann-Katrin Berger.

The couple got together after Ann-Katrin met Jess after joining Birmingham City FC in 2016, with their national teams going on to play against each other in the 2022 Euros final, where the Lionesses took out Germany to scoop up the title.

Meanwhile, Chloe Kelly showed off her enviable abs as she opted to wear a slinky black cut-out dress.

Bethany opted to wear a suede red blazer, with skinny jeans, while Alessio flashed her toned midriff in a crop top and smart co-ord.

The quartet were handed their award by former Spice Girls legend Geri Halliwell Horner, who branded them 'extraordinary and historic' as she talked about how the women’s England team had 'changed the face of an entire sport'.

Chloe spoke on behalf of the Lionesses as she gave an inspiring acceptance speech saying: “Us girls probably don't realise the impact we have on many young girls.

"But this award is not just for women's football, it's for every woman involved in sport, those who have paved the way that came before us and left the shirt in a better place for us, and allowed us the platform to achieve great things – this award is for them.”

Meanwhile, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Georgia Harrison were among the other winners at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2023.

Hosted by comedian Katherine Ryan, Little Mix's Leigh-Anne was awarded the musician gong.

The 32-year-old found fame on The X Factor as part of the girl band Little Mix in 2011 – alongside Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, and Jesy Nelson – and spent a decade in the group before they announced they were taking a break.

In 2021, she presented the BBC Three documentary Leigh-Anne: Race, Pop & Power, which explored the discrimination black women face in society and the music industry.

Reality TV star Georgia Harrison, known for her appearance in the ITV documentary Revenge Porn: Georgia Vs Bear, won the activist award.

She has been raising awareness about violence against women and girls (VAWG) and advocating for a VAWG code of practice to be added to the Online Safety Bill."
