Another big night for the women in Hollywood, as plenty of the most notable females in entertainment and fashion made their way to Glamour’s 2015 Women of the Year Awards. The magazine throws the event every year, to honor the women that they feature in the December issue.
This year there were eight different recipients of the enviable title, including Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon, the USA Women’s Soccer Team (FIFA Winners) and Misty Copeland, the first African-American women to be promoted to principal dancer in American Ballet Theatre’s 75-year history. In addition, one of the most talked about women of the year was also honored by Glamour: Caitlyn Jenner.
Caitlyn was seen on the red carpet wearing a custom-made Moschino midnight blue gown, with her hair in an elegant up do. In the women-centric Glamour article Caitlyn explains her feelings on the attention she has been able to bring to the Transgender community. She recounts, “I started thinking, maybe this is why God put me on earth. This issue has been swept under the rug for so long. I need to tell this story on the highest level you can possibly do it. Not just for me but for this entire community.”
On the other side of the Jenner-Kardashian family is Kim Kardashian, who opened up about her work, life and being pregnant for the second time in a podcast for Vogue.
During the podcast, Kim talked about her highly successful app, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. In the game, fans can play as Kim and try to climb up the social ladder. Kim insists she plays a big role in shaping the game, saying, “It’s not an easy job. There’s so much work put into it, more than people I think even realized.”
Later in the podcast, Kim went on to tell a story about how she took a one-day trip to Paris for a piece of cheesecake. Kim explained, “I don’t like cheesecake but the cheesecake at Hotel Costes…its heaven. I flew in, maybe a couple months ago, just to have a last hoorah of all the food that I’m not going to be able to have or a while. And I get there, and they tell me they didn’t have it. And I was like, ‘you don’t understand! I leave tomorrow!’ I think I flew for one night…and they got it and it really made my day.”
Towards the end, the social media queen opened up about her struggles with her second pregnancy. Kim, who is due in late December, admitted she has finally given up on wearing heels 24/7. She said, “It’s getting hard. A friend of mine emailed me and said, ‘Have you given up?’ and I said, ‘Why, what do you mean?’ and he said, ‘you’re wearing flip-flops. I saw a photo of you in flip flops,’ and I said, ‘Yes, I’ve given up at this point.” However, Kim confessed that she still tries to wear her heels as much as possible, but only for short intervals.
