elizabeth holmes, cheers to your record of accomplishment, earnest innovation, and the brilliant future you’ve made possible for others! and to @glamourmag, thank you for having us for this wonderful night dedicated to inspiring women. #glamourwoty25
Had to share these again because #wcw & it's been exactly ONE MONTH since I won a whirlwind visit to NYC to meet Sophia Bush/attend Glamour's 25th Women of the Year Awards and I'm stillllllll in shock 🙆
The red carpet was absolute chaos (in the most exciting way!!) and I honestly can't believe these celebs do that kind of thing on a regular basis! The photogs yelling, the camera flashes, the questions from reporters, oh my!! We were asked about the other honorees in attendance, good advice we've received from women in our lives, holiday traditions, and of course, inevitably, who we were wearing. I was dreading that q because I wasn't in a designer gown & couldn't remember the label at that moment! But I do now! It's by a lovely brand called @tfnclondon that I bought from @hudsonsbay 👗😍 I was complimented all night on it!! At one point on the carpet I looked behind me, and my mom & I were surrounded by the Victoria Secret models. No joke. 5'2 hobbit Tamara staring right up at 7ft Karlie Kloss and 3 other sexy giraffes just like her 😂 Eve Hewson (Bono's daughter & actress on The Knick) kept looking at me like ~should I know you???~ which was pretty funny. You can see my head beside Eve in a Selena Gomez pic, and my head beside Ivanka Trump in her Access Hollywood clip, so I'm pretty much a star now 😎 That's how it works right?! LOL! Mostly I was trying to not look silly or step on Sophia's dress!
My mom was waiting at the end of the red carpet with Sophia's manager Ashley, laughing that I was being interviewed by CNN or something, when Goldie Hawn walked by! Goldie is like her Sophia & she was soooo excited by the time she got her camera out all she got was a pic of Goldie's back hahahaha!! But she did get a decent pic of Reese Witherspoon walking right beside her 😆 😆
I wish we'd been able to party with everyone after the show, but just that red carpet experience alone was enough to fill my heart with an infinite amount of memories!
I'll have to post more of my tourist pics from when we had a few hours to explore Times Square. Also took some at Glamour HQ & will write a little something about our visit there!
Love seeing this gorgeous, athletic, inspiring role model be recognized! #dan#dancenger #ballet #dance #Repost@mistyonpointe
@glamourmag Women of the Year 2015: Misty Copeland, The Showstopper✨
In June, @MistyOnPointe was promoted to principal dancer at American Ballet Theater, the first African American ballerina to reach that level in the elite classical ballet company’s 75-year history. Her memoir, Life in Motion, made the New York Times best-seller list; her “I Will What I Want” commercial for Under Armour went viral; and she’s doing all she can to reach communities with little exposure to ballet. #GlamourWOTY25#EveryWomanCan (📷 by @markseliger)
