Hot Mama Serena Williams makes Red Carpet Debut at #GlamourWOTY

Congrats! The 22-year-old IMG Model packed on the PDA with the 24-year-old former 1D boybander in between sips of her strawberry cocktail

Serena, who was speaking before giving the award to the 22-year-old, did not stop there and further heaped praise on Hadid for her positive attitude towards life.

She said that she also looks to other powerful women for inspiration. Williams wore a black Versace mini-dress with gold embellishments. That wouldn't have been good for Gigi's intricate lace Zuhair Murad Couture gown.

The blonde beauty explained that although she experiences her fair share of doubt and heartache, it's important to remember that "a small idea" can transform her outlook.

Other honourees on the night included Icon victor Nicole Kidman - who was supported at the bash by her husband Keith Urban - and "Wonder Woman" director Patty Jenkins, who was handed her award by the franchise's original actress, Lynda Carter.

"Serena, I just want to say you have been such a handsome light in my life for so many years, and I can't tell you how happy I am to call you my friend", said Gigi. "It's kind of insane I'm still kind of surprised".

"It's been a while since I've been on the red carpet, in fact since before I was pregnant", the athlete said on Instagram ahead of making her comeback at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

"Gigi, you are one of the few people on this planet I would leave my baby for-for one night-but for you, it shows how much you mean to me. And I want you to imagine the effect you have on the world", Williams told the audience.
