Katy Perry started off her weekend at Billboard's Women in Music 2012 luncheon. According to People Magazine, she looked amazing while doing so, as she wore a salmon-pink dress with a dazzling belt and heels, all of which were Oscar de la Renta. She also donned Sally Sohn earrings and an Effy ring, making for quite the ensemble.
According to Billboard, the stunning pop singer was given the Woman of the Year award during the ceremony. The starlet was honored for how well she has done in the music industry over the years.
"I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women," Perry said during her acceptance speech. "I don't really like to call myself a role model for my fans. I hope that I am an inspiration for them, especially young women. My mantra, especially for the ['Part Of Me'] film, was: If you believe in yourself, you can be anything."
Other women honored at the event included Carly Rae Jepsen, who took home Rising Star 2012, and Atlantic's Julie Greenwald, who took number one female music executive for the third year in a row. This award is considered a win among the Women in Music overall, the media outlet reports.
Perry was quite busy this weekend, as she was also given an honor on Sunday night. The 28-year-old "Firework" crooner was given the Trevor Hero Award from the Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization that focuses on improving the lives and preventing suicide in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.
According to Monsters and Critics, the starlet looked lovely when she was honored with the award. Perry donned a dazzling nude dress with glitzy detailing, which she paired a long gold necklace and an adorable headband. One thing's for sure, she was very honored with the award.
"The organization has educated me so much. I grew up in a very intolerant environment and for a long time I was told that people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) were an abomination," she said. "But when I started to ask questions it was hard to find an answer which made rational sense from the bubble around me. As I've grown up I've freed myself from that mindset."
