ELLE Magazine Celebrated the 24th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Empowering Women in the Industry

ELLE, the world’s largest fashion magazine brand, celebrated the 24th annual ELLE Women in Hollywood awards at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills last night. The event honored Cicely Tyson, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Kathleen Kennedy, Laura Dern, Margot Robbie, Riley Keough and Tessa Thompson for their creative contributions to the world of film. ELLE Editor-in-Chief, Nina Garcia opened the awards with a unifying message reminding the audience that women in Hollywood “must band together and be proactive and tonight is a great place to start” stating to the crowd “we are in this room together, here to toast to what we have accomplished and to encourage one another to alter the course of Hollywood history. To make this the end of an era and the beginning of a new one!” It was an empowering and entertaining evening at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards. From Tessa Thompson’s touching words on her personal hero and fellow honoree Cicely Tyson to candid and hilarious moments from Jennifer Lawrence guests were either standing in applause or laughing with joy throughout the evening. Riley Keough, who is often compared to Runaways costar Kristen Stewart, joked “tonight you get a double dose of awkward” to the amused crowd. Reese Witherspoon lit up the red carpet with her lookalike daughter Ava, who she praised onstage as being a “wonderful teenager.” In addition to being feted at the annual awards dinner in Los Angeles, the honorees are also featured on individual covers of ELLE’s November Women in Hollywood issue, on newsstands now.
