How is it that Hillary Clinton, Jane Goodall, Condoleezza Rice, a pair of Olympic athletes and five female Nobel Prize winners can share the same honor with umm…Tyra Banks? It must be time for Glamour’s Women of the Year awards.

Last night the fashion magazine held their famous awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall, and they continued their tradition of honoring women from all walks of life.

I guess Glamazon media mogul is a walk of life?

Some of our favorite fashion plates were there to celebrate, including Fergie in white and silver Michael Kors, and the classic Debra Messing in Ralph Lauren.

“I’m wearing sparkles and feathers and tulle and I just thought it was appropriately Glamour-ous,” she told a Glamour reporter.

But did Messing’s famous stylist, Rachel Zoe, get the ‘witch vibe’? We’re thinking definitely ‘yes’.

Of course it was new mom, Nicole Kidman, who took fashion’s grand prize for the night in a gorgeous L’Wren Scott gown with tasteful diamond drop earrings and a fashion-forward arm band.

In town to promote her new Baz Luhrman film, Australia, the A-lister was delighted with her Glamour award for helping fight violence against women.

“It’s such a privilege. I feel a little overwhelmed,” she told USA Today.

I wonder if she was overwhelmed when Australia co-star Hugh Jackman shot that shirtless campfire scene? If you haven’t seen the trailer, ladies, fasten your seatbelts…

But all fashion, gossip and jewels aside, it was New York Senator and ‘almost’ President, Hillary Clinton, that made the biggest impression, inspiring a minute-long standing ovation.

Condoleezza Rice, elegant in Oscar de la Renta, had kind words about her fellow A-list political honoree: “I’m very fond of her, and I think she’s a great lady.”

Bi-partisanship extends its Glamorous reach. It really is a new day.
