‘Glamour’ Women of the Year Awards: The Top 8 Looks

Glamour magazine’s Annual Women of the Year Awards were held last night honor 24 remarkable women — from entertainers like Cher (who scooped up the Lifetime Achievement Award), to humanitarians like Queen Rania of Jordan. What we discovered? Not only do these women have amazing accomplishments, they also have amazing wardrobes. Here are our favorite looks.

BEST DRESSED: FERGIE
Fergie is on fire with this red dress! The Black Eyed Peas singer and shoe designer gave a tearful acceptance speech for her award, and wore a floor-length, one shoulder Zac Posen gown and matching pumps. She radiated true glamor, and for that she’s best dressed.

BEST LIP LOOK: JANELLE MONAE
The evening’s performer, Janelle Monae, rocked her signature cape and pompadour, but she was also giving us something new—hot pink lips that REALLY popped against her all-black ensemble.

BEST ACCESSORIES: CHER
The consensus was that Cher, who took home the final award of the evening (the Lifetime Achievement Award), inspired the audience with her acceptance speech. For us, though, the “ROCK” pin that she wore on a leather biker jacket made a statement of it’s own.

BEST SHOES: ESTELLE
Estelle sparkled (literally) in black, glittery shoes, which she paired with a one-shoulder gown and an equally shimmery clutch.

BEST HAIR (UP): KELLY OSBOURNE
Presenter Kelly Osbourne (master of hair transformations) took a cue from Janelle Monae by pinning her hair up into a chignon/pompadour that looked retro-cute with her brow-skimming bangs.

BEST HAIR (DOWN): ALEXA RAY JOEL
Singer/songwriter Alexa Ray Joel’s brunette strands always look great — shiny, thick, healthy. But, the added curl and side-pullover gave them added oomph.

BEST EYELASHES: JANET JACKSON
Janet Jackson teamed up with Hilary Swank to present an award to fashion designer Donatella Versace. The trio looked great on stage, but all we could focus on were Janet’s long, luscious lashes. Swoon!

BEST OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAM LOOK: KATE HUDSON
Kate Hudson presented the award to Fergie wearing a shimmering champagne Lanvin gown with metallic gold leather pumps. Her retro waves swept over one shoulder and classic red lips totally transported us to a forties jazz club.
