See Photos From Bustle's First-Ever Upstart Awards

On Tuesday night, Bustle celebrated our first-ever Upstart Awards, bringing attention to the contributions and impact made by 2014 graduates. Our 13 recipients impressed us with their early accomplishments — all of these women are changing the world for the better, and we were thrilled to celebrate their projects at New York’s Bathhouse Studios. (And enjoy Grey Goose cocktails and cupcakes in a jar in the process!)
