For decades, TIME magazine has honored people from around the world for their work. For the first time, TIME has decided to shine a light on groundbreaking women in the world, working to better industries from midwifery to music — and they are all truly inspiring. Along with being inspiring individuals, they are absolutely rocked the red carpet, showing the world how glamorous they are too.
The honorees for the first-ever TIME’s Women of the Year are Amal Clooney, Afghan journalist Zahra Joya, Kerry Washington, Kacey Musgraves, Tracy Chou, Jennie Joseph, poet Amanda Gorman, Allyson Felix, Nasdaq chief executive Adena Friedman, lawyer Sherrilyn Ifill, Amanda Nguyen, and Michaela Jae Rodriguez.
Many of the women showed up in glittering gowns for the star-studded event held at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills, California (where they sell a $40 Smoked Salmon Pizza that’s going on our bucket list).
Held on International Women’s Day, March 8 was the perfect day to honor these phenomenal women. From Kerry Washington’s show-stopping gown to mother-daughter duos on the red carpet, it truly was an amazing International Women’s Day.
