It's Big Congratulations! time for last night's winners at the second annual P&G Beauty Awards, again held at the Carlu and this time hosted by multi-award-winner Queen Latifah. Big big congratulations in particular to Michelle Villett of BeautyEditor.ca, whose appealing mix of trend reporting, problem-solving, celebrity watching and all-around beauty smarts won her this year's Best Beauty or Fashion Blog! Unfortunately, a kitty-cat emergency at home had her winging off to give him some TLC immediately after her award (Kitteh is apparently doing better today), so she's not in the group shot with Queen Latifah, above. So here she is instead:

Along with dynamic and very funny Queen Latifah, the evening featured a variety of presenters, including fashion designers Joeffer Caoc and Marie Saint Pierre, MTV's Aliya-Jasmine Sovani, Juno Award-winner Jully Black (who, together with co-presenter Paul Brothers, Gillette spokesperson and host of The Score, was hugely entertaining), supermodel Stacey McKenzie and "Fashion Television" host (and author and designer) Jeanne Beker.

And the winners are:

  • Nathalie Atkinson, The National Post – Best Fashion Feature, Magazine or Newspaper (English)
