Want proof? Take a good look at the 20 awe-inspiring women below. They make or break trends. And with millions of fans following everything they do, these women are as savvy as they are sexy, their careers expanding into new territory all the time.
But the faces to break a thousand hearts deserve our applause and more, especially considering that these women are actresses, singers, models and bona fide businesspeople.
We could never pick a favorite. It all started with a Desigual show in From there, the LA native racked up gigs with Carine Roitfeld, Vogue several issues of them , Versace and Chanel, paving the way to the throne with a series of front covers and closing runway appearances. Turns out good things do come in pairs. While Gigi got a head-start in the modelling career, Bella is hot on her tracks — just with a slightly different career path.
Granted, her mandatory high profile boyfriend The Weeknd recently became an ex. The Kardashians are the Hollywood equivalent of an indulgent, definitely-not-good-for-you meal.
One of the younger flagbearers — Kendall — is proving to be far less divisive than the TV show that propelled her family to fame.
Which is a real cultural anomaly, considering her CV. And we still forgive her, every single time. Like the Hadids, the Jenners harbour their own black sheep.
Nicole Scherzinger has quite the pair of lungs. She fronted two albums as part of The Pussycat Dolls, released two all by herself, and even had time to squeeze in a couple of appearances on the West End in Cats.
You pay them bills, Nicky and keep us watching. The London-born model is making a play for the big screen too, appearing in Gone Girl and We Are Your Friends in all her wonderful, technicolour glory. Kim Kardashian haters can back off. Jourdan Dunn is the ultimate girl-done-good. Her portfolio is proof of sheer hard work, too, with the likes of Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Balmain and Burberry all previous paycheques that show no sign of Dunn fatigue.
Thank God. Margot Robbie, the rose of Wall Street , harks back to a Golden Age of Hollywood when the roles were coveted, and the actresses behind them even more so. The year-old is only set to increase the trend, too.
Rihanna has a lot to contend with. Which, frankly, must be torture. That said, the queen of Bajan pop and IDGAF Instagram comments has spawned 11 number ones on the Billboard Hot , eight albums in almost as many years and collected over international music awards. Blake Likely however, was one of the best things about it. In short, the unicorn of girlfriends.
In addition to being the best all-rounder of womankind, the part-Thai, part-Norwegian model can claim quite the career, too: think Sports Illustrated , Maxim and even a co-host spot on Lip Sync Battle. John, you lucky, lucky man. Olivia Culpo is a breath of fresh air. And not just because she has something to say. The Rhode Island debutante is a far cry from the usual realm of tiaras and gemstones, donning a series of looks that are more at home at Milan Fashion Week than a Missouri beauty pageant.
Watch this space. For all the anti-Russian sentiment of late, just consider Irina Shayk. The former face of Intimissimi is reason enough alone to book a one-way ticket to Moscow.

Jasmine Tookes really is a woman of the world. Next up: the Han Solo movie. Geeks everywhere rejoice. The Brazilian demigod made what could be one of the tackiest runway shows on earth, a must-see culutral phenomenon, leading a pantheon of beautiful woman to follow suit.
Probably why she keeps going back. Appearing in over sixty films across all four corners of the globe, the actress caused the world to listen up to Indian cinema and, better yet, take it seriously.
