This year's Glamour Women of the Year event featured an environmental twist with a couple of eco-friendly spin-offs.  The magazine partnered with Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive to support the environmental cause, and stars like Emmy Rossum, Stephen Colbert, and Rosario Dawson arrived to the event in an eco-friendly Toyota Prius instead of a gas-guzzling SUV. Environmental activist, Laurie David inspired this year's cause and selected the NRDC as the charity associated with the celebrity auction. She was featured in Glamour's December issue and was presented a Women of the Year award by Robert F. Kennedy at Glamour's 17th annual awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall.
