As the build-up to GLAMOUR’s Women of the Year 2017 begins, we thought we’d take a nostalgic look at last year’s winners.
Below are the nine gorgeous ladies who won the prestigious award in 2016; all talented and inspiring.
The generous spirit
What’s on your summer reading list?
I love suspense thrillers so I’m looking forward to reading The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins and The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.
The readers’ choice
What’s the beauty trick you swear by?
I have three cardinal rules: Always remove your makeup before bed, never leave home without sunblock and add coconut oil to everything – it gives skin a glow and the brain a boost.
The media star
What’s your hidden talent?
Well, being very involved with technology and programming, I absolutely love a little first person shooter game! It’s always fun to get a few friends around and play computer games.
The next big thing
Crystal Kasper and Palesa Mahlaba of The Duo Desk
What’s your best bargain buy so far this year?
Palesa: I’m such a bargain hunter, so that’s a difficult question. My favourite bargain buy is a black embellished satin slip dress that I’m yet to wear, but I look at it every night!
Crystal: A floor-length fishtail green satin skirt with lace-up detailing at the back.
The business brain
What is your beauty summer essential?
A good moisturiser with SPF.
What is the beauty product you can’t live without?
I can’t live without my Nimue Sun-C SPF 40.
The style icon
What would we find in your handbag?
A silk scarf, signature sunglasses, a tin of Les Anis de Flavigny rose drops, MAC Russian Red lipstick and a vintage compact mirror.
The DIY Queen
What is your go-to travel outfit?
My go-to travel outfit is leggings, my comfy takkies and my very lightweight jacket.
