Every year, the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2017 brings out inspiring and talented women from all industries, backgrounds, and ages—and the 2017 event, which took place on Monday at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn, New York, was no exception. On a night that’s all about celebrating women and what makes us beautiful, strong, and, well, freakin’ amazing, we certainly want to take a second to praise all the stunning outfits the honorees and guests wear.
From Olympians to astronauts, pioneer directors to United States representatives, refugees to supermodels, this year’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2017 strived to inspire, pave the way and change the world for both past and future generations alike. Take a look at the Ladies night out with gorgeous dresses—and pants—on the red carpet at the 28th Annual Women of the Year Awards 2017.
Ladies Night Out at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2017
Italian Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of the Dior Maison, honored with the Glamor Award for the Fashion Force, acknowledged his power in fashion.
The most photographed, Gigi Hadid, has won the title of “Supernova”, the most brilliant girl of the year. For the occasion, the top model chose a princess Zuhair Murad dress in bare and gold tones. To accompany her could not miss her mother Yolanda and her sister Bella, in a white dress and silver Cristina Ottaviano.
Nicole Kidman accepted a Lifetime Achievement honor at Glamour Women Of The Year Awards this week. Rocking a Dior embroidered tiered dress, Nicole completed her look with black heeled sandals and choker.
From the musical front, the name of the year is the one of Solange Knowles, in total look yellow lemon, awarded the Best Artist Award. 31, a fresh release of her third studio album, “A Seat at the Table” top of the Top 200 Billboard chart, the singer has often been called a free, rebellious, and compromising spirit.
The Astronaut Peggy Whitson won the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2017. She may not be as celebrated as others in her field, Whitson, 57, has broken records in a field that is 90 percent male. On Sept. 2, Whitson returned from Expedition 51, a 288-day exhibition that broke the record for the longest female orbit in space.
6. Patty Jenkins
On a night filled with countless wonderful women, we were lucky enough to be in the presence of two bonafide Wonder Women. At Monday night’s Women of the Year Awards, the O.G. Wonder Woman, the fabulous Lynda Carter, presented honoree and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins with her award.
One of the highlights of this year’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards (which took place Monday, November 13) was honoree Maxine Waters’ speech, where she repeatedly called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. At 79, Maxine Waters describes herself in Glamour as a mix of “intellect and alley cat.”
A Syrian refugee and education activist Muzoon also accepted her Award at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2017. The 18-year-old Syrian refugee is the youngest ever Goodwill UNICEF ambassador. As she fled her home in Syria at 14, the only thing she took was her schoolbooks. Throughout her long, hard journey, she always kept in mind that it is crucial for young women to keep fighting for their education. She is now traveling the world with UNICEF to guarantee the refugees’ access to a proper education.
Other recipients of the award were comedian and TV host Samantha Bee. The Full Frontal host, while accepting her award for Glamour Woman of the Year on Monday night, revealed that even she sometimes reaches a personal breaking point when it comes to her show’s most frequent topic, Donald Trump.
