Katy Perry and Carly Rae Jepsen hit the red carpet at the 2012 Billboard Women In Music Luncheon held at Capitale on Friday (November 30) in New York City.
The 28-year-old entertainer was honored with the Woman of the Year distinction! Carly Rae, 27, was highlighted as this year’s Rising Star.
“I felt like my year was last year … I thought my moment had passed,” Katy said in an interview with Jon Stewart.
“I don’t really like to call myself a role model for my fans, but I hope I’m an inspiration, especially for young women,” Katy said while accepting the award.
Carly Rae spoke about her hit “Call Me Maybe”. “It was sort of the key to unlocking the rest of the world for me and was something that none of us were expecting,” she said.
Also at the event were Cher Lloyd and Ciara.
FYI: Katy is wearing Oscar de la Renta with an EFFY ring. Carly Rae is wearing a Rachel Zoe Collection dress and Brian Atwood heels.
