November marks ELLE Magazine‘s annual (and amazing) Women in Hollywood issue, and with it came the 22nd Women in Hollywood Awards, an event that we here at The Gloss look forward to every year. An awards show honoring amazing women and all the hard work that they do in an industry where even the most talented and successful are still treated as lesser than their male counterparts? Sign us up! This year, the magazine’s cover featured superstars like Selma director Ava DuVernay, Amy Schumer, Gena Rowlands, and the always-fabulous Kate Winslet, and last night’s awards show, as you might imagine, was an all-out girl-boss festival.
Speakers included Mary J. Blige, Lena Dunham, and Meryl Streep, and ELLE Editor-in-Chief Robbie Myers reminded all in attendance that, as far as we appear to have to come in terms of equality between men and women in Hollywood (and everywhere else, for that matter), we still have a long, long way to go, citing the stat that 95 percent of studio movies are still made by men, and nights meant to specifically honor women are still necessary and all-too important.
And, of course, a night celebrating the amazing women we all admire was bound to be full of incredible style, and we’d be remiss to overlook it in favor of the amazing speeches (which are totally worth looking up, BTW). Read on to see some of the best looks from last night’s Women in Hollywood Awards!
We can all agree that Kate Winslet can do no wrong, right? I think she’s been on every single best-dressed list since dinosaurs roamed the earth. For more Kate Winslet clothing glory, please feast your eyes on the trailer for her new movie, The Dressmaker.
The longer I look at this, the more I like it. I thought that the bell sleeves would bother me, but the belt-strap detail on the chest actually completely distracts from the sleeves in the best way. I don’t even mind that it’s a turtleneck.
Guys. GUYS. There are shoulder pads. That’s all I need to know.
This is a beautiful way to wear all-over beading. It actually vaguely reminds me of the Calvin Klein pearl dress that Lupita Nyong’o wore to the 2015 Oscars. Oh, and this look is actually a top and maxi skirt!
Sarah Hyland really has been killing it in the fashion department lately. Those pants are beautifully tailored, a Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandal is always a good idea, and my inner five-year-old loves the sequined top.
Long time, no see, Shailene! Also, long time, no see, new favorite jumpsuit!
If I’m being perfectly honest, I never really expect that much from Julianne Hough anymore. She’s been pretty disappointing lately, so I don’t really look out for her on red carpets. This look might just change that.
Alicia Vikander has kind of come out of nowhere lately with these great looks, and I’m not mad about it. I’m still obsessed with the costumes they put her in for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Just a little photographic proof that pastel is, indeed making a big comeback.
