Many modes of so-called glamour were represented at the 2017 Glamour Women of the Year Awards on Monday (November 13) in Brooklyn, New York. Here’s a look at some of the other femmes in attendance.
Sailor Brinkley: Simple seduction was precisely what this ZAC Zac Posen Resort 2018 sequin slip gown was all about—with Sailor’s romantic ringlets to follow form.
Yolanda Hadid: For Yolanda, an LBD meant a long black dress in this Akris gown that smartly hinted at seduction in the keyhole detail and side slit.
Sofia Coppola: Fresh and snappy, this Michael Kors Collection Resort 2018 floral frock brought a boldly printed twist to Sofia’s comfortable, no-nonsense style.
Laverne Cox: The long sleeves and long fishtail length of this Stello sequin gown didn’t take away any of its sexiness that came forth in the sheer lace peek-a-boo panels. Lorraine Schwartz jewels finalized the glitzy nod to glamour here.
Serena Williams: Opting for a short dress, Serena’s Versace Spring 2018 mini still had a high-octane mood with the gold, ornate detailing so signature to the label.
Sara Sampaio: This Dundas Resort 2018 gown played to both sharp, geometric structure and decorative filigree embellishment for an interesting fusion of styles. Manolo Blahnik heels and Graziela Gems rounded out the modern take on sultry elegance.
Andreja Pejić: I love the soft romance that emanated from the draped, plisse sleeves and languid silhouette of this Prabal Gurung Spring 2017 gown. What I could have done without was the harsher contrast of the black pump that was peeking from underneath.
Louisa Krause: Offering a retro-mod sensibility, this Erdem Pre-Fall 2017 embellished frock featured a different variation on the brand’s signature florals with gold block heels to complete the vintage quirk.
Ebonee Davis: While I was in love with the sky-blue hue of this Theia Couture gown against Ebonee’s complexion, something about the floral embellishment and chiffon overlay slightly quelled my affection, as it seemed ever so slightly juvenile. Cartier jewels and Tacori earrings completed the look.
Tori Bowie: This Valentino Resort 2018 frock was begging for a vibrant turquoise shoe to better round out the look.
Ashley Graham: An intriguing variation on the suit trend, this Prabal Gurung Resort 2018 ensemble took a directional turn with the bell sleeves and button-down trousers.
Cara Santana: The fit of a dress is so key, as the off-kilter bodice of this Cinq à Sept design really betrayed its potential. I do like the bolder tones of the styling she brought with it in the statement Alexis Bittar tassel earrings and gold bow sandals.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: Many will be glad to see that this Christian Dior Resort 2018 embroidered frock was lined after its original runway presentation—even if it did feel a bit lacklustre.
Natasha Poly: This Balmain Spring 2018 mini had all the edgy effect we’d expect from the Balmain army, with an intriguing, textural chainmail effect that only bolstered its sexy-warrior appeal.
LaLa Anthony: With a low plunge and high slit, this interpretation of the tuxedo dress would never be mistaken for menswear.
