Glamour's Women of the Year Awards

The 17th Annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards was held this past Monday and honored women from various walks of life for their achievements.

Among the most prominent to be honored at the event were Queen Latifah, awarded the Role Model award and Sandra bullock who was presented with the Undercover Activist Award for her enormous donations to the red cross and post Katrina efforts.

Queen Latifa looks like she is glowing. Her rosy cheeks and red lipstick look wonderful. I think that she is definitely a role model in every way!










Sandra looks like she is having fun and I like her makeup. I am not sure about those boots with the dress.




































Among the other honorees was former supermodel Iman. Having devoted herself to the AIDS crisis in Africa she was honored for her efforts to fund antiretroviral drugs for children and working with Keep a Child Alive.

Iman always looks like a star doesn't she. Her dress was quite lovely.
