Lady stars of cinema, television, business, theatre, sports and politics were given recognition as Bulgarian Women 2006 in apparent rivalry for the traditional male awards.

TV anchors from both state-run and private channels - Veneta Raykova, Mila Dobreva and Mia Santova - met face to face to be given the recognition.

Actress Anna Papadopoulou, Festa Holding's Petya Slavova, rhythmic legend and coach Lili Ignatova, Deputy Foreign Minister Gergana Grancharova were among the awarded ladies.

Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter and famous actress, model and film producer Kiera Chaplin was special guest to the ceremony organized by local fashion magazine Grazia and held under the patronage of EU-Affairs Minister Meglena Kuneva.

Kuneva herself was nominated for the top prize of Woman of 2006, but was unable to come after her plane did not land at Sofia Airport.
