With a groundhog feel to it, the annual Glamour Magazine “Women of The Year” awards gala rolled out the red carpet at Carnegie Hall last night. And we are reeling over another year having come and gone, seemingly so quickly. This year’s honorees touted some stellar names like: Jennifer Lopez – “for transcending from superstar to superbrand” and Lea Michele – for her “musical talent & acting chops”.
We might have phrased the above differently, but we will try to keep it PC.
As the collage above indicates, these two mentions we isolate are a portion of the A-list brigade in attendance. We could easily have also dropped the names of presenters, for the evenings festivities, like the ever lovely Kerry Washington, Jessica Alba or the bashful Emma Stone.
But wait, less we get too overly PC – Stone wasn’t being bashful, girlfriend posed it up in the main arrivals tent, with an actual red carpet & backdrop. But suddenly, as if out of nowhere, the secondary arrivals area was “overwhelming” for her… & the Easy A star channeled a demure demeanor and made like she’d been transcended into the heart of a Compton drive by!
We will let this transgression go cuz she will answer to a higher being one day! Yes, we mean Tom Cruise. (Alright, we love her comedic timing in the flick. Sue us.)
And so as to not appear biased against our nations’ Republicans, we appreciate the likes of former first lady Laura Bush, accompanied by daughters Barbara Bush and Jenna Bush Hager, Condoleeza Rice and one-time Supreme Court / Clarence Thomas scandal figure-head Anita Hill who were all sports about the 2ndary step-and-repeat pause prior to sprinting in the stage door. The 99% have you guys figured all wrong.
Other notable mentions: Lala, Debbie Harry, Beverly Johnson – sans undergarments, Marc Jacobs – sporting a fab clutch, Theophilus London – in a suit right out of 1984, Nikki M. James, Emmy, Brian Atwood and date and Sandra Lee.
Attendees who skipped 2ndary photo-op: Jonathan Groff, Donatella Versace, Barbara Walters, Mayor Cory Booker, Diane Sawyer, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (her we understand & forgive) and True Blood’s hotness werewolf supreme – Joe Manganiello – who was spotted going into the venue through the front door. And last but not least – the ever generous Jennifer Aniston and her companion Justin Theroux.
The Glamour magazine Women of the Year event is an annual fete celebrating strong, beautiful, smart women. It is generally attended by names known to folks from every walk of life. This year notably attended by Cher, Julia Roberts, Fergie, Hilary Swank and Kate Hudson – among others. One name that may not however be remotely recognizable is Jennifer Powell.
This is because unless you were seeking coverage for the event, you wouldn’t have dealings with her.
Ordinarily her position is comprised of having to juggle accommodating hoards of requests and fitting them in truly limited spacing. Then having to coordinate talent and their PR with attending media and maximizing coverage of event.
In truth this can often times prove tricky. Some artist can decidedly wish to bypass doing press and simply wish to get to their assignment presenting, etc.
The talent can seldom be forced to do anything but merely implored.
But generally, those who reside in such positions can be observed making attempts to at the very least get the talent to make it worth while for a pressline.
All cept for this here Glamour event.
RTnM made requests for coverage and were repeatedly turned down due to “limited spacing” issue. And as if clueless to the purpose of coverage request being a work related issue, Powell’s email read “the images will be available on wireimage.com immediately following the event.”
Then we learned of there being ample room left over from colleagues. Powell actually made one exception and let in a member of an already admitted outlet while adamantly refusing it to others present attempting to appeal refusal in person.
And the icing on this sour cake? The folks in the position to facilitate the step and repeat served more as “ushering the artists past the line up – even when the celebs were willing to pose.”
Sometimes spacing is just that! But clearly, in this case, it is more about maliciousness and disregard for folks out to make a living.
And that is why we here at RTnM bestow this here award of words solely to Jennifer Powell for her most un-Glamourous acts.
Photoshop, you fatty! Perhaps that diet of yours is truly affecting your judgment. Eat bitch, eat! Seriously! But I digress…
