You might have heard about this little event we at Glamour threw last night—our 25th Women of the Year awards. It was so spectacular, so impressive, and so inspiring that a little after-dinner party wasn’t going to do. No, for the 25th, we had to go big, and thanks to our friends at L’Oreal Paris, we took over the iconic Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Plaza (home to Glamour’s first ever Women of the Year awards) to toast, eat, and dance the night away. Here’s your insider’s guide to it all!
Victoria Beckham huddled on a staircase inside the Rainbow Room to have a few quiet moments with son Brooklyn. It was there that she welcomed us to sit with her and talk about the “wonderful, wonderful evening.” Her husband, David, and family recorded a video message for her during her awards presentation, but she revealed at the party that she had no idea Brooklyn was going to come onstage and say a few words. “I didn’t know!” she marveled. “I’m so proud that he’s here with me, and not knowing that he was going to go up there and say what he did…well, it was just great, and I feel so honored and humbled. I’m thankful to Cindi [Leive] and everyone at Conde Nast.”
Beckham has long been a fan favorite of Glamour’s, of course: She’s been on the cover, guest-edited our September issue, and is now one of our Women of the Year. So what’s next? “I don’t know,” she laughed when asked if she’s available to transcribe and do other office tasks. “I’m still pinching myself!” So where will the respected fashion designer keep the award? “Definitely in my office. This award means the more than any award I’ve ever received.”
