On the red carpet at the 2014 Glamour Women of the Year Awards



The Glamour Women of the Year Awards was filled with celebs, inspiration -- and, of course, glamour.

The annual awards, which recognizes courageous and inspiring women who are changing the world, was held in New York City on Monday, and had a packed red carpet with Hollywood heavyweights like Jodie Foster, Lupita Nyong'o, Mindy Kaling, Laverne Cox, Bruce Willis and Stephen Colbert stepping out for the fabulous night.

Naturally, the red carpet was really about the ladies though.

Honoree Lupita Nyong'o, hailed "The Breakthrough," turned the most heads and stunned in a gorgeous bejeweled dress. The white frock, which featured an intricate neckline and a full skirt, was simply breathtaking on the award winner.

Not to be outdone, Karlie Kloss stole the show fashion-wise in a McQueen gown she called a "work of art." The Victoria's Secret model later presented honoree Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, with The Visionary Award.

Chelsea Clinton also scored a couple style points for her post-baby red carpet look. The new mom, 34, wowed in a simple floral dress and appeared to be enjoying her night off from diaper duty.

Arianna Huffington, who had the distinction of presenting honoree Natalia Vodianova later in the evening, was spotted yucking it up on the red carpet with pal Hoda Kotb.

Despite a room full of gorgeous gowns and famous faces (and Anna Wintour's signature bob), human rights efforts and inspirational stories took the spotlight.

"That's what I love about the Glamour Award. It brings together so many different but exceptional women," Vodianova said.

The supermodel was among the 2014 Women of the Year honorees for being a "voice for children" with the Naked Heart Foundation, which ensures that children with special needs have a the services, family help and cultural acceptance to live happy and full lives.
