AMONG PRESTIGIOUS LIST OF HONOREES

L’Oréal Paris Title Sponsor of the Awards Ceremony

NEW YORK CITY—November 11, 2014—Glamour held its 2014 Women of the Year Awards gala last evening at Carnegie Hall in New York City. At the preeminent event that celebrates women’s achievements, Glamour’s editor-in-chief Cindi Leive honored luminaries from across the worlds of entertainment, philanthropy, education, fashion, and politics. Comedian James Corden opened the awards ceremony, which included a performance by Haim and a star-studded list of presenters. The evening also included a special memoriam tribute by Amy Schumer honoring the late comedienne Joan Rivers. L’Oréal Paris was the title sponsor of the awards celebration.

“One of the privileges of my job is the front-row seat it gives me to watch some of the most amazing women in the world in action,” said Leive. Glamour’s annual tribute to female ‘doers and darers’ honors those trailblazers: ten winners who have made history in 2014.”

Glamour’s Women of the Year Advisory Board, composed of past honorees, helped choose the following 2014 Women of the Year:

  • Lupita Nyong’o—The Breakthrough: The 31-year-old star won an Academy Award for her first role in a major motion picture; she was named a new face of Lancôme; she scored the cover of People’s Most Beautiful issue; and she landed key roles in two upcoming films, The Jungle Book and Star Wars: Episode VII. Mira Nair presented.
  • Sarah Burton—The Visionary: Since taking the helm as creative director of Alexander McQueen in 2010, Burton designed Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, was named one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world, and was appointed an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by Prince Charles. In 2013 alone, Burton led the Alexander McQueen brand to skyrocketing sales, while the rising tide of her success is helping to lift the British fashion industry. Karlie Kloss and Karen Elson presented.
  • Chelsea Clinton—The Women’s Champion: Throughout her work at the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, Clinton has championed a seed and fertilizer initiative in Malawi, Rwanda, and Tanzania, and has worked to lower the cost of diarrhea treatments that could save the lives of 170,000 children by 2015. Most recently she’s leading No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, to advance the full participation of women and girls around the world. Whoopi Goldberg presented.
  • Laverne Cox—The Advocate: Cox has become the face of one of the biggest equality stories of 2014. Her empathetic portrayal of Sophia Burset on the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black has made her the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy—and landed her on the cover of Time magazine. She’s producing a documentary on CeCe McDonald, a transgender woman who, after defending herself from an attack, spent 19 months in prison, as well as a documentary for MTV. Jodie Foster presented.
  • Mindy Kaling—The Lady Boss: The Mindy Kaling tribe breaks down like this: more than 2 million viewers of The Mindy Project (the Fox comedy she created, writes, produces, and stars in), over 3 million Twitter followers, and one million–plus Instagram fans. In other words, millions of women feel like Kaling is their BFF. Stephen Colbert presented.
  • Samantha Power—The Ambassador: When Samantha Power was a journalist reporting on the war in Bosnia, she realized that documenting the world’s troubles wasn’t enough; she wanted to try to solve them. Now Power, 44, is the United States’ youngest-ever permanent representative to the United Nations during a year when the U.N.’s Security Council held more emergency sessions than it had in the entire 10 years prior. Bruce Willis presented.
  • Robin Roberts—The Survivor: Just two years after America watched the longtime broadcaster (and breast cancer survivor) battle myelodysplastic syndrome, a life-threatening bone marrow disease, the Good Morning America anchor has interviewed one big name after the next, started a new production company, and signed an ABC contract worth a reported $14 million. Shonda Rhimes presented.
  • Natalia Vodianova—The Voice for Children: As the founder of the Naked Heart Foundation, the supermodel has made it her life’s mission to make sure that children with special needs have the services, family help, and cultural acceptance to live happy and full lives. Arianna Huffington presented.
  • Sylvia Earle—The Explorer; Lifetime Achievement Winner: Over the past five decades, legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle has logged more than 7,000 hours undersea, discovering tens of thousands of species of aquatic life. Even as her eightieth birthday approaches, Earle, who is a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, continues to spend three months a year on expeditions. Keri Russell presented.
  • The Bravest Girls in the World: Right now, an estimated 50 million girls worldwide are kept out of secondary schools by obstacles like poverty, child marriage, and war. This year Glamour honors every girl, everywhere, who defies the odds in order to go to school. By putting their reputation, family, and own life on the line for their education, these winners are brightening everyone’s future—and with support, they can change the world. Freida Pinto presented.
