Brooke Shields saw double at the 2023 Women of the Year Awards when she was unexpectedly presented with a vintage Brooke Shields “World’s Most Glamorous Teenager” styling head. But first, the model, actor and advocate graced the red carpet in a chevron print backless gown that glittered in a rainbow of jewel tones. She accessorized the shimmering puff sleeve dress with a messy bun, hoop earrings, and a crystal-studded black clutch.
Brooke Shields Is in Her F*ck-It Era
Botox? She’d rather get wrinkles. Dieting? Life’s too short. Brooke Shields is done with chasing youth and doesn’t care what you think. She’s too busy remaking her future.
Shields was one of the honorees at this year’s ceremony, and delivered an impassioned speech about the opportunities of middle age. She was introduced by good two good friends: Mariska Hargitay, star of Law & Order: SVU, and Ali Wentworth, an author who also co-produced Pretty Baby, the recent documentary about Shields’s life and career.
Just before the supermodel’s acceptance speech, the pair surprised her with an ‘80s throwback: a vintage Brooke Shields “World’s Most Glamorous Teenager” styling head.
“My mother made them shave the body down,” Shields recalled, laughing. “Because they usually just put the head of the person on the body of the doll… And they were putting my face on the Barbie doll and my mother made them go back and remake the model because I was flat-chested and made them carve the boobs down. So I’m the only Barbie doll that has no boobs.”
