Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara, and Eva Longoria took top honors at UK Glamour magazine’s annual “Women of the Year” awards ceremony in London on Tuesday night. The event is held each year to recognize women in the public eye for their outstanding accomplishments.
Colombian actress Sofia Vergara was named “Comedy Actress of the Year” for her role on Modern Family. The 39-year-old beauty accentuated her curves in a form fitting red dress, and wore black open-toed heels.
“This is bloody amazing! I'm so happy to be here, Glamour, thank you!” she said while accepting her award. “To be part of this with all these glamorous people is amazing. Thank you so much, I hope to be back again."
Jessica Alba also was honored as the “Entrepreneur of the Year” for her line of environmentally friendly household products. The 31-year-old arrived in a lace black gown, and carried a bag by Alexander McQueen. “It took me about an hour to get ready,” Alba said. “I'm really looking forward to just celebrating women and seeing people here that I haven't seen very much because I'm always working, it's nice to just hang out with some of these glamorous people."
Eva Longoria was named “Inspiration of the Year” for her charity work. The 37-year-old Mexican actress turned heads in an eye-popping Victoria Beckham orange gown, paired with Brian Atwood nude heels. She polished of her chic look by carrying a Ferragamo clutch.
