The event was to honour Britain's most dynamic Asian women and there was only one way for the special guests to dress up.
Liz Hurley and Cherie Blair looked resplendent in Indian dress last night as they got into the spirit of the Asian Women of Achievement Awards in London. Miss Hurley, 41, is well-practised in wearing Indian outfits, following her marriage to Arun Nayar earlier this year
Yesterday she wore a traditional figure-flattering sequinned sari for the event at the Hilton Hotel in Park Lane.
Mrs Blair, 52, opted for a similar colour scheme, but wore a sheer embroidered outfit more loosely based on a sari.
She presented an award to Lucky Dhillon, from Middlesex, who received the Media Professional of the Year award for her work on Sunrise Radio, the first UK independent radio station specifically for the Asian community. Mrs Blair told the ceremony she was "delighted" to be a patron of the awards, and said all the women should be "extremely proud of their achievements".
