Cynthia Erivo, Phoebe Dynevor and Claire Foy were among the winners at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards.

The luxury fashion magazine’s annual ceremony took place at Claridge’s hotel in London on Tuesday.

Organisers said it recognised “the outstanding achievements of women in the worlds of fashion, film, art, literature, music and activism”.

Oscar-nominated actress Erivo, 34, won the music award in recognition of playing Aretha Franklin in anthology series Genius: Aretha, as well as for “using her powerful voice to call for social change”.

Dynevor, 26, received the breakthrough talent prize for her headline-making portrayal of Daphne in Netflix’s massively popular raunchy period drama Bridgerton.

She told the PA news agency she was “thrilled” to win the award.

Reflecting on her rapid rise to stardom through the series, Dynevor said: “It’s crazy, going from being in the pandemic and everything exploded.”

She added: “It’s been a crazy year.”

Foy, 37, took home the actress award for her part in The Crown, as well as her performances in the forthcoming BBC series A Very British Scandal and the film The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain.

She told PA it was “really lovely” to win the prize, adding the awards organisers “pick such extraordinary women to celebrate”.

Veteran actress Joan Collins, 88, was honoured with the icon award for her 70-year career in showbusiness, which included a memorable turn in US soap Dynasty.

Also recognised was Jodie Comer, 28, selected as this year’s editor’s choice, with awards organisers praising her performances in TV series Killing Eve and Sir Ridley Scott’s historical epic The Last Duel.

Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, received the inspiration award while Lubaina Himid won the artist award.

Laura Kenny and Sarah Storey were presented with the award for sporting icons in recognition of their successes at Tokyo 2020 as the most decorated British female Olympian and Paralympian of all time.

Kenny told PA: “It’s just incredible to have so many talented and incredible women in the same room.”

Sarah Snook was given the television actress accolade for her playing Shiv Roy in Succession.

Lydia Slater, the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, said: “These inspiring women have lifted our spirits, and changed our views, through their art or their words, on our screens or with the power of their voices.”
