Last night was a night for the ladies in New York City as some of the most important women of our time graced the stage of Carnegie Hall for the 20th anniversary of Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards.
From Oprah, Donatella Versace, and cover girl Fergie to Queen Raina of Jordan, the awards ceremony celebrated women in entertainment, fashion, politics, as well as their humanitarian efforts. Queen Raina, in particular, is a woman we can all look up to. She is a modern queen who not only tweets and has an incredible sense of style, but also fights for the education of women worldwide.
The night was best summed up by Lifetime Acheivement Award winner Cher who boasted, “What I want you girls and what I want for everyone, especially women, is that they don’t take no for an answer because no is just some bullsh-t word that someone made up.”
