Vogue India Women of the Year Awards 2017 Highlights
Stars from all over the cinema and style worlds congregated for what could only be seen as the hottest red carpet of the year at the Vogue India Women of the Year Awards to celebrate ten years of Vogue India.
Mumbai saw a star-studded affair on Sunday night as Vogue India handed out its Women of the Year Awards. The event also marked Vogue India‘s tenth anniversary. The milestone moment was celebrated by hosting the very first Women of the Year awards — from the always-entertaining Shah Rukh Khan to the always-radiant Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Bollywood’s biggest stars walked the red carpet and picked up their awards. Also present were Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Karan Johan, Kirti Sanon, Gauri Khan, Padma Lakshmi and Manish Malhotra.
Mrs. Funnybones Twinkle Khanna won the Vogue Opinion Maker of the Year Award and won over audiences with a hilarious speech about the ten things she learned over the last decade. One of them was, “Millions of Indian women fast for their husbands’ long lives every Karva Chauth. My dear friend who just won an award is immortalised in his movies, but I don’t think our 3,033 Gods are really listening. Because on the mortality charts there are 147 countries above us where their men outlive our good old Indian dudes. So, ladies stop because it’s clearly not working.”
She concluded by saying, “The most important thing I have learned is this—for centuries, women have been looking for a cape and they’ve been handed an apron. And it’s only recently that we’ve learned how to swing our aprons around, let it fly on our backs and take to the skies. Awards like these validate our work and help us soar higher so I’m truly grateful to be going home with this one.”
Karan Johar received the Vogue Man Of The Year award while Anushka Sharma earned the Vogue and BMW Game Changer of the Year award. Sonam Kapoor took home the Vogue and IWC Fashion Icon of the Year award, which was handed to her by her father, Anil Kapoor.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was honoured with the Vogue Influencer of the Decade award. The superstar of all time Shah Rukh Khan, who’s always equipped with wit and charm, was presented the Vogue Entertainer of the Decade award.
