Little Mix were seen chatting about their win in their first interview as a trio during the night, saying it’s been amazing to see ‘how far they’ve come’.

The stylish beauties – Jade Thirlwall, 28, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 29, and Perrie Edwards, 27, – said: ‘Look at how far we’ve come, from when we use to speak about being feminist or anything political in the past.

‘I remember being on a red carpet and we panicked. We were terrified to speak back then… we were even told not to say we were feminist.

The singers agreed that they’d spent ‘far too long being patronised’ and seemed to all change their thinking at the same time, deciding to speak out on causes.

Perrie then added that they’ve had to get ‘use to saying we might get it wrong’, declaring that it’s been better to be wrong than say nothing at all.

She said: ‘Saying nothing is worst, or you’ll never learn about any issues in the world. I love it when we speak out.’

To end their short video interview, the girls thanked Glamour for their award with Jade saying they’ve ‘worked hard on finding things were passionate about’.

Elsewhere during the event Frankie Bridge, 32, reflected on her mental health battle and how she first spoke about it publicly in an interview with Glamour.

Speaking on a photoshoot, Frankie said: ‘I didn’t want to live my life anymore, I was crying all the time, wanted to spend time in bed and hide away.

‘Then I realised maybe my depression and anxiety had taken over me rather than me having control of it.

‘I chose Glamour [to speak about her mental health with] as I thought they’d be sensitive to the subject… I wanted to help others to seek help when they need it. And people still sometimes say they’ve seen the story and it’s helped them.’

Frankie then spoke about how things have changed and her family, adding: ‘I remember watching my son bouncing on a trampoline and the pure joy of simple things made me realise as you get old, you don’t appreciate those things.

While Awkwafina revealed she was ‘saved’ by her talent after years of ‘feeling different’ after she was named Glamour’s Gamechanging Creator.

The actress, 32, who made history last year as the first of Southeast Asian descent to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, said that her incredible creativity has ‘given her hope’ and ‘instilled a sense of self.’ 

Awkwafina explained it took years for her to realise that she had to embrace her individuality after growing up feeling like an outcast. 

She said: ‘Feeling different was always a really constant emotion of mine and talking to a lot of kids often they feel that way, too. 

‘The main message that I want to give to those kids, because they might not see it now, is that those differences are going to set you apart. That’s a big message I wish I could have taught myself earlier.

‘Creating has 100% saved me. It’s given me hope, it’s instilled a sense of self that I was lacking as a kid.’   

Yara Shahidi also looked to what’s next as she spoke with the publication after being  named the New Gen Gamechanger.
