The Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2017 was filled with so much emotion as this is the last WOTY run for the editor-in-chief, Cindi Leive before she leaves the magazine at the end of the year. The event which was held at the Regal Kings Theater in Brooklyn, New York had a plethora of segments that highlighted the works of women across diverse sectors who are spearheading a new movement for the new generation.
The 2017 Glamour honorees included women from all sectors from supermodel Gigi Hadid to Syrian refugee Muzoon Almellehan, there was no separation just honour to whom it was due. The other honourees include Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Oscar winner Nicole Kidman, Artiste Solange Knowles, Dior’s Maria Grazia, ‘Wonder Woman‘ director Patty Jenkins, record-breaking astronaut Patty Whitson, organizers of the historic Women’s March and late-night host Samantha Bee.
The event was a bittersweet one. It was celebratory as well as a means to rally. This platform afforded women the means to relish in this year’s success as well as arm themselves for the next years to come. Celebrities who graced the Awards ceremony included Chimamanda Adiche Ngozi, Serena Williams, Anna Wintour, Tracie Ellis Ross, Lavern Cox, Zendaya Coleman, Drew Barrymore, Iman, Ashley Graham, Lala Anthony, Bella Hadid, Yolanda Foster, Halima Aden, Keith Urban and a host of others.
