ho runs the world? Girls! Last week, the Women of the Year Awards by Glamour and Harper’s Bazaar UK were held in honor of incredible women. The events celebrated the unmatched achievements of women in the industry, and the outcome was an overflow of ladies making an entrance in grand style. Meanwhile, at the 2023 CFDA Awards, the stars dotted the red carpet in well-thought-out numbers that resembled vintage works of art worthy of the American Museum of Natural History that played host to the event.
A go-getter in her right, Serena Williams won’t miss an opportunity to be excellent — whether in tennis, motherhood, business, or fashion. Last week, the star girl bagged the Fashion Icon Award at the CFDA Awards shining in a black sequin Thom Browne number. The corset dress flaunted a mesmerizing train and exaggerated sleeves that added oomph to the entire ensemble. This is how to show up to reiterate your fashion sensibility.
Clashing colors and a luxe coat will always evoke big-boss energy, and Gabrielle Union-Wade understands this. Last week, the actress hit the streets of New York in a Burberry FW23 coordination that made a case for clashing hues. Featuring a red-and-yellow pant set, the actress elevated the look with a luxe black coat that lent a hand for a major style moment while rebuffing the chilly night’s wind.
Mary J. Blige gave us double slay last week. The first was for the CFDA Awards where she turned heads in a sheer Christian Siriano number punctuated with silver embellishments that resembled icicles, evoking a sensual flair that was hard to miss. For the second occasion, the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards, the iconic singer came shimmering in a turquoise sequin halter gown from Pamella Roland’s S/S 2024 collection.
