Barbra Streisand Received Special Lifetime Achievement Honor
L’Oréal Paris Title Sponsor of the Awards Ceremony

NEW YORK CITY—November 12, 2013—Glamour magazine held its 2013 Women of the Year awards gala last evening at Carnegie Hall in New York City, honoring women across the worlds of entertainment, philanthropy, education, fashion, and politics. The awards ceremony included a star-studded list of presenters, and Seth Meyers opened the show. L’Oréal Paris was the title sponsor of the awards celebration.

“Each of these women is a force individually, but combine them and you have something magical—a group of leaders who can change the world. Each one of these women inspires our readers to dream a little bigger and bolder–and to see them all in one place is electric,” said Cindi Leive, editor-in-chief of Glamour.

For seven consecutive years Glamour has raised money for extraordinary philanthropic organizations through the Glamour Women of the Year Fund initiative. This year the Fund initiative supports 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai’s The Malala Fund, which helps programs that directly impact the quality and accessibility of education for girls. The 2013 Fund initiative has been kicked off by a donation from 1990 Woman of the Year Ling Chai, who has supported the Fund initiative for six years through the Jenzabar Foundation. Donations made at the crowdfunding site catapult.org or at glamour.com/woty will be matched by the makers of the video game Just Dance 2014.

Glamour’s Women of the Year advisory board, made up of past honorees, helped choose the following honorees:

  • Lady Gaga—The Monster Talent: With five Grammy Awards, 23 million albums sold, and more than 40 million Twitter followers, her inimitable star continues to rise. In 2011 she launched the Born This Way Foundation in partnership with Harvard University to help end bullying. Marina Abramović presented.
  • Melinda Gates—The Advocate: As co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the world’s largest philanthropic organizations, she has tackled the toughest global health issues. Lena Dunham presented.
  • Catherine Martin—The Fashion Wizard: A costume and production designer with a Tony Award and two Academy Awards under her belt, she sets fashion trends in the movies with her husband, director Baz Luhrmann. Rose Byrne presented.
  • Natalie Massenet—The Chairman of Cool: As the Founder and Executive Chairman of The Net-a-Porter Group, she has reshaped the fashion industry online. Her companies sell more than 550 brands across 170 countries. Karlie Kloss and Oscar de la Renta presented.
  • Christy Turlington Burns and Liya Kebede—The Role Models: Through theirfoundations—Turlington Burns’ Every Mother Counts, a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world, and Kebede’s Liya Kebede Foundation, which supports maternal health care in Ethiopia—both women are working to make motherhood safer for women everywhere. Iman presented.
  • Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly—The Love Story; Couple of the Year: Giffords and Kelly are true partners in every sense of the word, from standing side by side through her recovery to being co-captains of Americans for Responsible Solutions, the gun-safety organization Giffords launched after retiring from Congress. Hillary Clinton presented.
  • Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis—The Protector: This teacher’s heroism and quick thinking saved her first-grade students’ lives when a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary last December. She later launched Classes 4 Classes, a nonprofit that teaches generosity to elementary school students. Arianna Huffington presented.
  • Malala Yousafzai—The Girls’ Hero; Women of the Year Fund Initiative Honoree: In the year since she was shot by the Taliban, the 16-year-old has become the world’s leading advocate for educating girls, wrote the memoir I Am Malala, and was one of the youngest-ever nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize. America Ferrera presented.
  • Carissa Moore—The Game Changer: At just 18 she became the youngest person to win the women’s world surfing championship. And this year the 21-year-old snagged her second world title. But perhaps her greatest achievement is that she has raised the profile of women’s surfing—a sport in which the top winners earn one third the prize money guys do. Lily Collins presented.
  • Barbra Streisand—The Legend; Lifetime Achievement Winner: America’s best- selling female recording artist, she has won two Oscars, five Emmys, eight Grammys, a Tony, a handful of Golden Globes, a Kennedy Center Honor, an American Film Institute Award, and two Peabodys.
