Oscar winner Mark Rylance, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour have all been named in the New Year Honours List.
Anna has been named a dame along with Keeping Up Appearances actress Patricia Routledge while Victoria, Naomie Harris, and Helen McCrory will receive OBEs (Officer of the Order of the British Empire).
Victoria found fame in the Nineties as one fifth of the Spice Girls but in recent years has become an acclaimed fashion designer, flying the flag for the UK around the world, and her tireless charity work.
In 2014 she began work as a UN Goodwill ambassador campaigning for HIV and AIDS awareness and she previously told Metro: ‘Many of us live incredibly lucky, blessed lives and we have a responsibility to help others less fortunate in whichever way we can.’

Elsewhere on the list is veteran comedian Ken Dodd who has received a knighthood for service to entertainment and charity.
He said of the honour: ‘I’m very proud, I’m very, very happy and full of plumptiousness. I feel highly tickled.’
The Kinks frontman Ray Davies was also knighted, and he said: ‘Initially, I felt a mixture of surprise, humility, joy and a bit embarrassed but after thinking about it, I accept this for my family and fans as well as everyone who has inspired me to write.’

Double Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan has also been named an OBE for services to drama production.
The 66-year-old, who was the butt of a poorly received joke by Stephen Fry at the 2016 BAFTAs,  said: “I feel honoured and humbled to receive such an amazing award for a job that I simply love doing – storytelling through clothes.”
