Best beauty looks from Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2017

From Olympians to astronauts, pioneer directors to United States representatives, refugees to supermodels, this year's Glamour Women of the Year Awards strived to inspire, pave the way and change the world for both past and future generations alike.

There was no shortage of powerful moments at this year's award show, where attendees shared personal #MeToo stories, slammed racism and called out those who "uplifted" them when others refused. 

To go with the potent aura lighting up Brooklyn's Kings Theater, there was quite an abundance of fierce looks to help us feel inspired.
