Best of the Glamour 2014 Women of the Year Awards Red Carpet

11 Nov

Glamour hosted their annual Women of the Year Awards and the recipients include women from a variety of professions including actors, philanthropists and designers. The red carpet is awash with party dress chic and here are our picks from the night.

Mindy KalingBeaded 1960s inspired decadence from Mindy Kaling and she is wearing a custom-made frock by Mindy Project costume designer Salvador Perez to celebrate being named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year. It is bold, colorful, sparkly and fun; all the aspects that make up Mindy Kaling’s on and off screen style. This is how you go short at an event like this (and Perez and Kaling talk about the design process here).

LupitaMindy is not the only honoree opting for above the knee and Glamour cover star Lupita Nyong’o wears yet another incredible ensemble to add to her year of red carpet highs. Queen Lupita seems more accurate and here she is wearing an embellished Chanel Couture dress paired with Kurt Geiger metallic nude pumps.

Laverne CoxGoing for something slightly longer is another Glamour Woman of the Year and Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox has got a velvet train and curls going on. This is a softer look than Cox tends to go for on the red carpet and the electric blue color is incredible on her.

Keri Russell GlamourKeri Russell’s penchant for leather continues and she is serving up 70s rock band realness here with an outfit that wouldn’t look out of place at a Runaways gig. Wearing a leather J. Mendel jumpsuit Russell presented Dr. Sylvia Earle with her award. Earle has spent over 50 years exploring, studying and striving for better understanding/protection of ocean habitats.

Coco RochaOpting for a menswear approach is supermodel Coco Rocha in this simple, but effective almost all black ensemble; adding a touch of glitz with gold toe capped loafers (that I am now coveting).

Amy SchumerMore metallics and Amy Schumer has the end of year (okay it is only November) party style down as this is the perfect time for silver shoes and a strapless dress like this. This is how you do winter florals.

Judith LightOh hey Judith Light! I am pretty much in awe of everything Light does and so I’m totally ignoring the so-so shoes and embracing the Stella from The Fall satin blouse. The design on the skirt is beautiful and this is a whole lot of secretary chic.
