Glamour Gala Fêtes Women of the Year

Honorees spanning the worlds of entertainment, business, art, fashion and politics were celebrated at Carnegie Hall for Glamour’s 2012 Women of the Year gala, sponsored by L’Oréal Paris. Held in the shadow of Hurricane Sandy, the efforts of women throughout local communities in the Northeast were also recognized at the event.

This year’s Women of the Year are profiled in December’s Glamour and the event benefits Project SAAVE, which helps to bring medical care to acid-attack survivors. Chosen by Glamour’s Women of the Year advisory board, comprised of past honorees, this year’s recipients include Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Annie Leibovitz and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The architect Zaha Hadid, Rory and Ethel Kennedy, J. Crew’s president and executive creative director Jenna Lyons, sexual abuse advocate Erin Merryn, documentarian Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and a quintet of London Olympians, including Missy Franklin, Gabby Douglas, Kayla Harrison, Allyson Felix and Carli Lloyd, were also honored at the event.
