This year, the second Elele Avon Women Awards highlighted the “Adds Value to Beauty” slogan of Avon, which adds value to beauty for 130 years. Winners received the awards at a glamorous ceremony at the Shangri-La Bosphorus Hotel.
Turkey’s popular women’s magazine, Elele, partnered with Avon to recognize the women as well as one man for making their mark in 2015. This year’s awards had an unprecedented 49 nominees in ten categories. The 2015 Most Inspiring Man Award went to Barış Arduç, a highly popular actor by women recently, on the award evening for the most accomplished women.
The public voted on the nominees, and the winners were selected by a jury including Hülya Koçyiğit, Mehmet Y. Yılmaz, Ertuğrul Özkök, Nihat Odabaşı, Aret Vartanyan, Leyla Alaton, Esin Övet, Ayşe Arman, and Ahmet Güneştekin.
