Glamour’s Women of the Year

Posted Tuesday November 6, 2007 4:43 PM GMT

The Lincoln Center in New York City was definitely the place to be last night. Glamour’s Women of the Year 2007 was in the house, and some big names showed up for the festivities.

Abigail Breslin was named the first ever Girl of the Year. She’s been a huge hit ever since “Little Miss Sunshine” made its way into theaters. And with the success of “No Reservations,” Breslin is on her way to a serious career in film.

Also in attendance was the new Bell of Broadway Jennifer Garner. But someone was missing… Ben Affleck. The pair showed up separately. And Garner said in this month’s issue of Glamour that there is a method behind Bennifer not showing up at events together.

“We’ve worked really hard not to be one of those couples who are constantly in the limelight. In the past we’ve both been the kind of people who go along with things—if you’re supposed to be photographed together, you don’t question it. But how does that help your relationship? So now we refuse to walk the red carpet together: It’s a way of not condoning the attention. Plus, it just feels silly to be in that situation with him: Ben was nominated for a Golden Globe [for 2006’s Hollywoodland]. I remember being photographed next to him and thinking, This is ridiculous. You’re not some actor; you’re my husband.”

Adding to the star power of the night were celebrities like Brooke Shields, Keri Washington, Hugh Dancy, Claire Danes, Diane Sawyer, Rashida Jones, Portia de Rossi, Rashida Jones, Shonda Rimes, Taye Diggs, Toni Morrison, Victor Garber, James Pickens Jr., Mariah Carey, Mariane Pearl, Stephen Colbert, and Jill Stuart.
