GLAMOUR’S PICK: Glamour magazine never reveals its Women of the Year award winners before its annual event in November, but insiders told WWD one of this year’s winners may be a surprise to some given her recent legal imbroglios: Rihanna, who has recently made headlines as much for her tempestuous relationship with Chris Brown, who was found guilty of assaulting her, as for her singing. The event, which will be held Nov. 9 at Carnegie Hall, celebrates inspiring, high-achieving women. Last year’s winners included Nicole Kidman, Tyra Banks, Maureen Chiquet, Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice.

Meanwhile, the magazine also is plotting its Fashion Gives Back initiative and has tapped Jason Wu, Alejandro Ingelmo, Pamela Love, Brian Reyes, Bensoni and Abigail Lorick of Lorick to design a limited edition shopping tote, proceeds from which will benefit dress For Success. Wu’s bag features gradient lines that darken to black, while Bensoni’s depicts oversize lipstick kiss marks in bright colors. Each bag incorporates the designer’s signature. The bags sell for $35 and will be sold exclusively at Bloomingdale’s and starting this week. The bags, along with 900 copies of Glamour’s October issue — which hits stands Sept 8. —will be featured in the windows of Bloomingdale’s 59th Street flagship in New York.

The October issue has a feature on Fashion Gives Back with profiles of the participating designers alongside a celebrities such as Jessica Szohr, America Fererra and Lily Collins. Past Fashion Gives Back Designers include Marchesa, Doo.Ri and Rachel Roy.
