Bono and his famous family stole the show at the Glamour Women of The Year Awards.
The U2 frontman (56) walked the red carpet at the exclusive event alongside his wife of 34 years Ali Hewson and made a rare appearance with their daughters Jordan and Eve.
Actress Eve (25) and activist Jordan (27) are famously private and have only walked alongside their parents at an event a handful of times, but made an exception as their father is the first man to ever receive the WOTY Award for his humanitarian work, trying to help the rights and needs of girls who live in poverty.
During his speech, he pleaded with US resident-elect Donald Trump to prioritise gender equality during his term, describing it as "the only way forward".
"I know how ridiculous it is for me to be on this stage accepting this award," he began. But if I didn’t know how ridiculous it was, I did have the blessed internet to remind me.
"As my daughter Jordan says, there is nowhere on earth where women have the same opportunities as men.
"Unless we address this problem, both men and women together, the world will continue down this misogynistic, violent and impoverished path.
"I say to the president-elect: look across to women, make equality a priority, it is the only way forward."
The stylish fmaily were dressed to impress with Eve sporting a mermaid style teal and black dress, while Jordan opted for a black crop top two-piece.
Also spotted at the exclusive event was a range of woman across disciplines including body activist Ashley Graham, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, actresses Jenna Dewan Tatum, Amber Heard and Lena Dunham, while singers Zendaya, Demi Lovato and Gwen Stefani also appeared.
