Hoping to boost the women who look up to them in some way, these 5 celebrities all hope they can somehow empower women through their fame. Some try to make women feel more confident – be it about their looks, their weight or their style – they want the ladies who love them to feel that they look amazing and can do anything they put their minds to. Encouraging fans to simply be themselves and go for gold, these 5 role models all do their best to make women feel empowered, beautiful and like they can take over the world if they try!
Christina wants to encourage women to feel good about themselves: ”I’m always in support of someone who is willing and comfortable in their own skin enough to embrace it.Embracing your body is so important, especially as a woman. In this business we are so analysed and judged. It’s wonderful to be in a position and have that side of myself that I can latch on to and empower other women. The older you get, the more important it is to embrace your body and your sexuality.”
Kate believes that by stripping off on screen she can promote a healthy body image for women: “I look like the people that walk down the street. I don’t have perfect boobs, I don’t have zero cellulite – of course I don’t – and I’m curvy. If that is something that makes women feel empowered in any way, that’s great. On a deeper, subconscious level, it’s one of the reasons why I’ve allowed my stupid self to be so naked on screen. It’s partly because I do believe that it’s right for the character and it’s right for the story but it’s also knowing that not many people do that, actually – and not just that, but I’m a normal person.”
Khloe hopes the clothing line she designs with her sisters helps women of all shapes feel empowered when they can dress to look their best: ”Just because you’re bigger, bustier or taller, you shouldn’t have fewer fashion options. Kim, Kourtney and I all have voluptuous bodies and we embrace them. We never want people to feel like, because they’re curvier, we can’t make clothes for them. We came up with this line so everyone can feel fashionable.”
Nicki makes sure women feel strength from what she says: “I started making it my business to say things that would empower women, like, ‘Where my bad bitches at?’ to let them know, ‘I’m here for you. Then, when I started going to the shows and it was nothing but girls, it was like, ‘Did I go too far with embracing my girls?’ Because now they want to kiss and hug me”.
Victoria’s fashion label is all about flattering the figure to make women feel their best: ”I love women and I want to empower women to feel good about themselves. Seeing any women in my dresses is exciting whether it is Jourdan Dunn… or whether it is someone that I pass by on the street who isn’t a supermodel, it’s still exciting.”
