Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher was the big winner at British magazine GLAMOUR's WOMEN OF THE YEAR AWARDS in London on Tuesday night (07JUN05).

The 40-year-old beauty was given the Editor's Special Award for her talent to combine motherhood, and a career while looking glamorous at the same time, as well as US TV Actress Of The Year for her portrayal as single mother SUSAN MAYER in the hit American show.

Accepting the gong, Hatcher confessed, "I flew in today from California. I'm red-eyed, tired and drunk...

"I hope I inspire women to believe just how much can change in just one year."

OSCAR-nominee Sophie Okonedo was another celebrity who had been enjoying the free champagne on offer at the star-studded bash in Berkeley Square Gardens.

As she accepted her trophy for Film Actress Of The Year for Hotel Rwanda, she said, "I want to say something really witty, but I'm so drunk I don't know what to say! And I've got to present an award later in the evening, oh s**t."

Triumphant Usher, who picked up Man Of The Year, laughed, "Man I love these awards. You can say what you like."
