Selena, Lena, and More Win Big at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards
Glamour hosted its annual Women of the Year Awards at NYC's Carnegie Hall last night. The magazine's editor in chief, Cindi Leive, presided over the show, which acknowledged powerful ladies and their accomplishments from the last year. Top honors went to recently single Selena Gomez, who made a heartfelt and simple acceptance speech after her Getaway costar Ethan Hawke praised her many talents. Chelsea Clinton was on stage to recognize 20 female politicians, while Anna Wintour feted photographer Annie Leibovitz and NPR correspondent Nina Totenberg sung the obvious praises of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The evening's funniest moment came during Chelsea Handler's tribute to Girls creator Lena Dunham. Lena thanked her pal Chelsea, but then proceeded to take off her uncomfortable shoes. Lena memorably said, "Behind every woman of the year is a group of people who have been taking the woman's sh*t for much longer than that." Pharrell Williams was one of the few men at Carnegie Hall, and he passed a statue to the iconic female architect Zaha Hadid. Additionally, Lauren Hutton took the stage to reward the talents of J.Crew's executive creative director, Jenna Lyons. In her speech, Jenna touchingly spoke of how she overcame her own teenage awkwardness and now aspires to help others do the same. These honorees were just a handful of those winning big last night — check out the full list of Glamour's Women of the Year.
