Laverne Cox, Lupita Nyong'o And More Talk The Best Style Advice They've Ever Received

Each year, Glamour's Women Of The Year Awards honor a slew of truly inspiring women and their efforts to make the world a better place. This year's top-notch guest list boasted the likes of Lupita Nyong'o, Laverne Cox and Chelsea Clinton, not to mention our own Editor-In-Chief, Arianna Huffington, alongside Karlie Kloss and Shonda Rhimes (just to name a few).

And while the crowds came out in droves to honor these amazing women and what they are currently working on, we here at HuffPost Style had some questions about what they learned before hitting the red carpet. Namely, the best style or beauty advice they have ever received.

And while we sadly didn't get a chance to ask presenter Stephen Colbert to share his beauty regimen, we did learn a thing or two about heels, eyebrows and of course, moisturizer. Check out some of our favorite quotes below.

laverne
"Dress for your body. Know yourself. Honor your body and celebrate who you are." --Laverne Cox

lupita
"Don't wear heels you can't walk in!" --Lupita Nyong’o

arianna
"Do not wear high heels! Kitten heels are OK, but never more than kitten. If we have any editor [at the Huffington Post] that is a size 9.5 or 10, they can have all my high heels. I’m going to put them all in the kitchen." --Arianna Huffington

karlie
"My mom always gave me great style and beauty advice. She said to be confident in what you’re wearing, no matter what it is. Just own it." --Karlie Kloss

natalia

"Always wash your face at night... don’t be lazy! Even on those nights you want to crawl into bed, just crawl into the bathroom, slowly wash your face and then crawl right back into bed." --Alana Haim

"Always moisturize. Always." --Este Haim
