Caitlyn Jenner didn't just win big for her advocacy work in the LGBT community at Monday evening's 25th annual Glamour magazine's Women of the Year Awards, she also took home top honours in the fashion department.

The 66-year-old stunned in a custom low-cut royal blue Moschino couture gown as she gave an emotional speech (that you can watch above) about her journey and transition, receiving the "Trans Champion" award in New York City. The dress, designed by Jeremy Scott, included long silk sleeves and frontal black detailing, and fell gorgeously below the shoulders. The standout look was minimally accessorized with Neil Lane diamonds and Barollo Italy pumps.

The former Olympian wore her hair in an elegant updo with a side-swept bang and loose, wispy pieces fell simply around her face. As for her makeup, Caitlyn chose to let her brows stand out, opting for a subtle black eyeliner, nude lip and blushed cheek.

In her speech, Jenner revealed how she was able to find her enthusiasm for life again as she became Caitlyn:

"Over the last six months, it has been the most eye-opening experience of my life. For years and years, I never felt like I fit in anywhere. I always felt as an outsider. I never felt good on the male side and I wasn't obviously on the female side. I was kind of stuck in the middle, but all of a sudden, after making this decision and coming out, it was by far the best thing I ever did, because for so many years, I lost my enthusiasm for life. I literally would be standing in my house for almost six years because I never wanted to come out, just to go to work, that's about it. Now, actually, I like going out and I like being myself."

Daughter, 18-year-old Kylie Jenner, was in attendance to watch her parent receive the recognition from Glamour, despite the fact that she had a wardrobe malfunction, according to her Instagram post.
