Glamour’s 2019 Women of the Year Awards went down tonight, November 11, in New York City, and so many celebrities came out for it. Everyone from Kate McKinnon to Aja Naomi King showed up and showed out on the red carpet. Naturally, the honorees—which included Charlize Theron, Megan Rapinoe, and Ava DuVernay—looked stunning as well. (For a full list of Glamour’s 2019 Women of the Year honorees, click here.) Of course, tonight was about so much more than red carpet style, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate all the looks we saw. Here are all the WOTY fashion moments you need to know about.

10 Fashion Looks We Can’t Stop Talking About From the 2019 ‘Glamour’ Women of the Year Awards

The Glamour Women of the Year Awards is a night of celebration — including when it comes to fashion! Celebrities, activists and trailblazers hit the carpet in sparkles, high leg slits, plunging necklines, sharp pantsuits — and so many more stunning moments that deserve an award of their own.

The ceremony was held on Monday, November 11, at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in NYC. Unsurprisingly the celebs brought their A-game for the special occasion. Actress and activist Jane Fonda hit the red carpet in an all-black ensemble, featuring a sequined blazer worthy of discussion. Some other stand-outs include Yara Shahidi’s colorful high-low gown and Charlize Theron’s head-turning Givenchy number.

Around NYC Monday Night: Denise Rich Raises Millions More for Cancer Research

Denise Rich has been throwing her Angel Ball for about 20 years, since her daughter Gabrielle died of leukemia. She renamed the charity Gabrielle’s Angels, and kept raising money. Rich’s charity has actually sent drugs into the market, and had successes battling leukemia. It wasn’t such Denise’s daughter who died of cancer, but her mother and sister, too.

So there she was last night on stage at Cipriani Wall Street in front of a room filled with well heeled patrons. They donated millions more, and Denise gave them a decent meal plus Patti Labelle, Boy George, and Flo.Rida as musical guests. Other guests included Heidi Klum and her new husband, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, Coco Rocha, Lorraine Schwartz, and philanthropist Jean Shafiroff (in an amazing pink taffeta gown). Clive Davis brought Nikki Haskell, mourning Robert Evans, and famed actress Brenda Vaccaro.

Back in 2000, 1500 people showed up at the Sheraton ballroom on Seventh Avenue to support Denise. Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson, and Milton Berle were among the guests. There were lots of real stars. There was no seating plan, so Geraldo Rivera took the mic and told everyone to sit down wherever they were. Nineteen years later, the “papered”guests have been replaced by actual donors. Clive Davis takes a table every year. Star Jones is on the scene.

Meet the 2019 Glamour Women of the Year

For the past 29 years, the Glamour Women of the Year Awards has honored game changers, rule breakers, and trailblazers. This year’s class of extraordinary winners are no exception.

In the 29 years that we’ve celebrated Women of the Year, our honorees have broken glass ceilings, shattered records, and redefined success on their own terms. This year we welcome eight new women into this sisterhood who, like the honorees before them, are using their chosen profession and inimitable spirit to push our culture forward.

Like soccer player Megan Rapinoe, who not only helped pave the U.S. Women’s National Team’s path to World Cup glory—scoring six goals during the competition—but led a tireless fight for equal pay. In March 2019, on International Women’s Day, Rapinoe and the rest of the team sued their bosses for gender discrimination. Flash-forward to their epic win this summer, when the stadium started chanting, “Equal pay! Equal pay! as they took their victory lap. Or teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who made a two-week voyage to the United States on a sailboat—and stood up to world leaders everywhere, challenging them to take action on climate change. As well as actors like Charlize Theron and Yara Shahidi, who, while at different points in their careers, refuse to play it safe either onscreen or in their individual crusades.

We couldn’t be prouder to introduce you to Glamour’s 2019 Women of the Year. They are a diverse group, including an author, director, actors, and activists fighting to make a lasting difference. But despite their different fields, our honorees have one thing in common: They’re warriors on the front lines of change.

Nothing Can Get in the Way of Patti Smith Performing ‘People Have the Power’

Who better to kick off the New Yorker Festival than Patti Smith, the platonic ideal of New York City condensed into a person? The woman entered to a standing ovation! In the hour-and-a-half conversation with New Yorker editor-in-chief and friend David Remnick that followed, the singer and writer read from her new memoir, Year of the Monkey (it’s about “70 percent” true), waxed about her favorite detective shows (she loves Idris Elba in Luther: “Talk about a guy!”), and told the story of meeting Trump in the ’70s (horrifyingly, “he brushed his eyebrows up straight”). And even if the event was just billed as a talk, an acoustic and electric guitar sat next to the two chairs, hinting at what the Godmother of Punk had in store.

Remnick had already coaxed acoustic performances of Smith’s “Pissing in a River” and Neil Young’s “After the Gold Rush” out of Smith before he asked Smith about the political life of her song “People Have the Power.” She explained how her late husband and co-writer, Fred Smith, would be proud of the song’s impact, and Remnick replied, “All right, well that’s our cue!” The audience applauded, and, Remnick didn’t spare Smith a second to think before he picked up his electric guitar. (Yes, the editor-in-chief of The New Yorker accompanied Patti Smith.) “Oh! You’re pulling out the big guns,” Smith said when she noticed he went electric.

The New Yorker Festival Has Been a Thing for as Long as David Remnick Has Been Editor

The brand reflects on how the event has evolved

David Remnick estimates he was in his job as editor in chief of The New Yorker for “five and a half minutes” (or so) when he was pitched the idea to start a festival around the brand.

The New Yorker’s Rhonda Sherman, who now directs the event, sketched out what a festival for the magazine would look like—to present The New Yorker in three dimensions—and it was “off to the races,” Remnick said.

The New Yorker Festival, now in its 20th iteration, will kick off Friday with presenting sponsor Land Rover, returning for its third consecutive year. “It brings the reader in closer contact and into the same room with The New Yorker, and the range of people we’ve had over the years gets better and better. It’s astonishing,” Remnick said.

This year, The New Yorker will have more than 50 events, including panels, live performances and master classes around New York. Guests booked for the event, which runs through Sunday, include Nancy Pelosi, Paul Rudd, Zadie Smith, Florence + the Machine, Sarah Silverman and Pete Buttigieg. Panel discussions are hosted by New Yorker staffers.
