Recap: Glamour Women of the Year Awards

As a Conde Nast Style Society member, I purposefully wanted to connect Curva-Lish to a brand that is as diverse as it is inspiring in being a pioneer through its network of brands.

Conde Nast owns Glamour and one of the highlights of the year is their Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

And, anything that celebrates women's achievements will be featured on this blog! Always.

This year's award recipients are just as inspiring and empowering as year's past with one exception: the awardees are getting better and better in representing the diverse ways in which women are breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles.

Here's a recap of the highlights:

The Women Who Survived the Charleston Murders

The women of Charleston who survived the hate-motivated mass murder at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church earlier this year touched the hearts of every audience member with their message of forgiveness—"Forgiveness is power."

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is a Woman of the Year because… "She's making movies, telling stories, giving women opportunities—all because she wants her daughter to have an example of what it's like to be a responsible human."
comedian and 2011 Woman of the Year Chelsea Handl

Elizabeth Holmes

At 20, Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford University to devote every waking moment to her fledgling business. Its goal? Both to revolutionize ordinary blood tests, and to change the control average citizens have over their health. Today, Holmes, 31, is the youngest self-made female billionaire in the world.

Principal Ballerina Misty Copeland

Misty Copeland is a Woman of the Year because… "She's blazed her own 
path—and proven that you don't have to bend to society's expectations because you look a certain way." 
actress Kerry Washington, 2013 Woman of the Yea
