Glamour's Women Of The Year Awards Delivered The Most Powerful Beauty Looks

At last night's Glamour Women of the Year Awards, female empowerment was in the air as luminaries including Solange, Maxine Waters, and the women of #MeToo were honored for their work in 2017 — it was #goals, #girlpower, and a great reminder to be the change you wish to see in your community. But that's not even all the event served up: There was major red carpet glamour.

It's pretty hard to curate a "best of" beauty roundup after an event where every attendee absolutely nails it (and we mean every. single. one.), but we went for it anyway. Ahead, see the game-changing women who prove that there's power in how we style our hair and makeup — and that leadership and lipstick can go together perfectly.

Big hair, don't care. To maximize your 'fro, like Jessica Williams did, try stretching your hair at the root with the lowest setting on your blowdryer.

A styling cream, applied to small sections of your hair, can define your curls even more, as demonstrated here by Jourdana Phillips.

Nicole Kidman was another member of the ponytail club last night. For wispy tendrils like hers, try wrapping your face-framing strands around a small curling iron.

Gigi Hadid can't resist the power — and drama — of Old Hollywood waves.

Calling Andreja Pejić pink lip "pretty" would be a massive understatement.
