You go girl! Female achievements highlighted at NYC event

November 15, 2012
Jennifer Lopez may have been poked fun at, but over the years, she has also attended the event.

On Monday, November 12, some of the most powerful women in fashion, politics and other industries gathered in New York City’s Carnegie Hall for Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year Awards. Although there were plenty of playful jabs everyone from reality starlet Honey Boo Boo to Jennifer Lopez, the event had serious moments as well.

A moving tribute was paid to documentary filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who was given an Oscar for her role in directing “Saving Face,” a movie about the Pakistani women who have been victimized by acid attacks.

Another guest of honor that night was creative director for J.Crew, Jenna Lyons. As she began speaking the to the audience, which included school-age females, she told them to always chase after their dreams, even when it looked like the odds were stacked against them.

”I know what it’s like not to feel beautiful,” Lyons added, according to The New York Times. ”I remember that feeling.”

World-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz also let everyone at the event that she brought her young daughter with her because she wanted her child to know “what a room full of amazing, inspiring women feels like.”

Chelsea Clinton even got up on stage. She praised how far women have come in politics, specifically citing the fact that 20 females are now in the Senate and that New Hampshire is home to an all-women Congressional delegation.

Without a doubt, all these fierce women looked fabulous at the event and, take it from them that paying attention to fashion is important. Make sure that you always look fabulous wherever you go by donning the latest designer shoes and designer handbags sold on, an online fashion retailer that sells gorgeous merchandise for less than what you would pay at a department store.
