Best of the 2015 Glamour Women of the Year Awards

10 Nov

There is not a whole lot of 2015 left and time has a way of flying by as we near those end of year lists (I need to start working on mine) and last night the Glamour Women of the Year Awards were held at Carnegie Hall in New York City. This is always one of my favorites because it celebrates a range of women and achievements and I just feel so darn positive afterwards. For more on this year’s recipients head here.

Viola DavisViola Davis’ daughter dressed up as her mother winning an Emmy for Halloween and it was pretty much the most adorable costume ever. Davis is onto another winner in red and black with some really excellent accessorizing.

Lupita Nyong'oWe’re almost at Star Wars press tour time, which means we are in for a treat with way more Lupita Nyong’o red carpet looks are ahead of us. Going for understated elegance in Jason Wu and working it like a charm while on hand to present Misty Copeland with her award.

Dascha PolancoDascha Polanco is serving up caped excellence and giving amazing face. I think this is her best red carpet look to date.

Danielle BrooksAnother fabulous turn from an Orange is the New Black star with Danielle Brooks in a color blocking delight. Oh hey there pockets! Just to make this even better. Brooks is in Aziz Ansari’s new show Master of None and next season needs more of Dev’s ambitious agent Shannon, who is all about getting that Friends money.

Alex MorganThe whole US Women’s soccer team was honored at the event; deservedly so after their World Cup win and Alex Morgan’s red and purple floral gown is beautiful. More pocket plus points getting dished out.

SerenaSports stars slaying all over the place with Serena Williams demonstrating how to do sheer in a way that doesn’t make me want to weep from boredom.

Victoria and Brooklyn BeckhamThe big trends of the night were red and black; these tend to be in favor this time of year and Victoria Beckham embraced crimson in a dress from her own collection. Well if you are getting honored for your work in fashion then it makes sense to showcase your work. Brooklyn Beckham continues to follow in his father’s footsteps by looking rather dapper all suited up.

Amy, Eve and SelenaMore red and one thing I like about this photo other than the perfect red dress symmetry is how random this grouping is; I am so here for groups of people you don’t expect posing together. Amy Schumer’s red Alexander McQueen is a switch up from the LBDs she’s been sporting recently and I love a flared sleeve. Selena Gomez is mixing sweet with sexy in Valentino and Eve Hewson embraces the 90s with a lipstick Winona would be proud of.

Misty CopelandTurtlenecks are in favor again and Misty Copeland shows how they can be worn in a formal setting like this; playing with this classic look as she picks up her Woman of the Year Award.

Elisabeth MossMore 90s lipstick realness from Elisabeth Moss and she’s hitting the vampy line hard in this velvet and sheer frock. There is a danger of looking too washed out when your hair is this blonde and I’m not feeling the shoes, but 90s nostalgia wins out for me here because I am a sucker for this.

Reese WitherspoonOkay so I’m not crazy about Reese Witherspoon’s Erdem dress – the floral pattern/texture is great, it’s the lace neckline that makes it too fussy – but I love everything about her speech. Reese talks about her acting career and how ambition shouldn’t be a dirty word. She also discusses her production company and the exciting slate they have ahead:

“We have over 25 films in development and three television shows, and they all have female leads of different ages and different races and different jobs. Some are astronauts, some are soldiers, some are scientists, one is even a Supreme Court justice. They’re not just good or bad; they’re bold and hunted and dangerous and triumphant like the real women we meet every single day of our lives.”

The full speech is really inspiring and while I am in danger of sounding corny I do always feel extra motivated after reading about events like this.

Judith Light, Caitlyn Jenner and Cindi LeiveOne final and super fun photo with Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive hanging out with Woman of the Year, Caitlyn Jenner and the always amazing Judith Light. Light presented Jenner with her award and this is another great dress color symmetry shot. I also love that Jenner has taken her shoes off by this point because I am incapable of keeping a pair of heels on all night.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

7 Nov

The start of the month brings magazines galore with cover shoots and editorials making the “Out of the Box” list alongside talk show and red carpet appearances.

Natalie Dormer FlareNatalie Dormer covers Flare and I’m pretty excited to see what she will bring style wise to the Mockingjay press tour that is about to dominate red carpet coverage. For now Dormer is still showing off the remnants of her Hunger Games dramatic hair style and wearing a daring knockout dress that I would love to see come premiere time.

In the interview Dormer offers up some opinion on the different types of roles there are and it is refreshing to see a lack of sugar-coating “We don’t accept women as antiheroes the way we do the men. Unless there’s a family get-out clause. We accept women being complete cunts if they’re doing it for a child.” She also loves playing Moriarty on Elementary and she is very happy with her Game of Thrones character as “The beautiful thing about Margaery is that even though she keeps getting married, she’s not defined by a love interest. And Cressida is defined by her profession and her political beliefs. Since Anne Boleyn, I haven’t played a woman who’s defined by romantic love.”

TimeOutTime Out New York dedicates this week’s issue to comedy with a focus on the “funny women taking over NYC.” This includes Jessica Williams, SNL’s Sasheer Zamata, new Broad City writer Kara Klenk plus Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. There’s the Catch-22 aspect of why do we have to do a gender specific comedy issue, but at the same time having a cover like this that doesn’t ask “Are Women Funny?” is an improvement.

Claire Danes GlamourBack to editorial and Claire Danes covers the December issues of UK Glamour and wears this fantastic Dolce & Gabbana squirrel skirt and lace top. In the interview she talks ’90s fashion and her explanation bears an echo of an Angela Chase voiceover “I wore a lot of overalls. Baggy clothes were very convenient for my generation. Our bodies were undergoing a terrifying metamorphosis, so it was a relief to put a bag over it all, hide in a sea of clothes.”

Eve HewsonThe Knick’s Eve Hewson attended the Dior hosted Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party on Wednesday in (and this is not surprising) Dior. Not only does this dress earn the pocket points, it is also a fun play on tweed. I often have black tights dress quandaries (when it hits colder temps I tend to wear them with certain dresses and just say fuck it) and here they don’t detract from the look so maybe I will be less black tights nervy in the future.

Lucy HaleLucy Hale is stunning in red at the CMA Awards and this Romona Keveza frock might be a style best for the Pretty Little Liars star.

Lisa Kudrow Comeback premiereIt is worth repeating that I am beyond excited for the return of The Comeback and at the premiere Lisa Kudrow looks elegant in a Reem Acra dress. The Valerie hair behind her gives her volume that almost reaches Kacey Musgraves CMA Awards heights.

Felicity Jones FallonRounding things off this week with a spin on menswear and Felicity Jones appeared on The Tonight Show this week in a beautiful Dior suit and skinny tie.
