Actresses Lupita Nyong’o and Laverne Cox, fashion designer Sarah Burton, U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power and Chelsea Clinton are among those being awarded Women of the Year awards by Glamour magazine.
The awards are to be presented in a star-studded ceremony Monday evening at Carnegie Hall.
Nyong’o won a supporting-actress Oscar for her performance in “Twelve Years a Slave,” capping her swift rise to the top rungs of Hollywood and the fashion world. She was also named a new face of Lancome and appeared on the cover of People magazine’s Most Beautiful issue. She will be appearing in the new “Star Wars” movie.
Cox, from “Orange Is the New Black,” was the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy Award. In a press release, Glamour called her “the face of one of the biggest equality stories of 2014.”
