Glamour Women of the Year Awards

2014 Glamour Women of the Year Awards is hosted by Glamour magazine every year to hand out different awards to honor extraordinary and inspirational women.

At the 2014 Glamour Women of the Year Awards, held on November 10th at Carnegie Hall, Arianna Huffington presented an award to Natalia Vodianova. Vodianova, a supermodel and mother of four, launched the Naked Heart Foundation ten years ago to support children with disabilities and their families in her native Russia. Vodianova, who was raised by a single mother in a family including a child with special needs, works to build accessible play parks around Russia and provide programs and camps for children with special needs. But the best part of the Glamour Women of the Year Awards was the message behind it all: Get off your butt and out of your cushy seat. Speak out. Do more.

As Glamour's Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive said, "We are all capable of greatness." There were lighter moments too, like Amy Schumer's hilarious and honest tribute to Joan Rivers, and when a group of adorable ballerinas came out to help Whoopi Goldberg present Chelsea Clinton with her award on Clinton's "first night out" since giving birth.

The 10 honorees at the 2014 Glamour Women of the Year Awards at Carnegie Hall: activist Chelsea Clinton, actress Laverne Cox, "Good Morning America's" Robin Roberts, fashion designer Sarah Burton (she created Kate Middleton's wedding gown), "The Mindy Project's" Mindy Kaling, Russian model Natalia Vodianova, United Nations ambassador Samantha Power, deep sea explorer Sylvia Earle, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o and, in a move that technically bumps the number of winners up to "countless," "every girl, everywhere, who defies the odds to go to school.
