Billboard's annual Women in Music ceremony draws an incredible crowd every year, and as you can see from the photos below as well as the ones we published on Friday, 2012's was certainly no exception. People came to New York's Capitale to honor Woman of the Year Katy Perry and Rising Star Carly Rae Jepsen and hear performances by Cher Lloyd and Hunter Hayes, but especially to recognize their colleagues and friends in our annual top female executives list, which was topped for the third consecutive year by Atlantic Records Group co-chairman/COO Julie Greenwald.
