Who says only Beyonce can be fierce? Here are 5 confident, tastefully sexy and admirable female celebrities who are proving that age is nothing but a number and showing us how they are still continuing to pave the way as strong role models for both the past and present generations.
Take a look at our top 5 fierce female celebrities:
Talent: Umm…singing, dancing, acting – everything!
Why she’s fierce: The real question here is why would we even question Madonna’s fierceness? If you were lucky enough to witness her career from the beginning in the 80s or you were like me and have perfected at lip-syncing Material Girl in front of your washroom mirror then you know this Michigan-born diva is the real thing when it comes to the entertainment world. From being a style trendsetter and icon to owning the title as the first original Queen of Pop, Madonna is a female celebrity we can’t help take our eyes off of. And it isn’t just her music that makes her great – it’s also her generous and eccentric personality, which she so charismatically shows with all her philanthropic and charity contributions and with no signs of slowing down in her professional and personal life, I know fans are eagerly waiting for what Madge has planned for the years to come.
Talent: Actress and the unofficial creator of ‘smizing’
Why she’s fierce: Before there was Anne Hathaway, there was Michelle Pfeiffer. Yes, for those who may have not known, the gorgeous blonde beauty was the original Catwoman and with her hypnotizing ‘come-hither-to’ stare and gorgeous blue eyes, Michelle perfected the combination of sexy and sophistication for her predecessors. Although her first major movie role was in Grease 2, we saw the real Michelle emerge when she played Elvira Hancock in the 1983 pop culture film, Scarface. From there her career was can be summed up with the cliché© line, ‘and the rest is history.’ With an acting mantra of taking any role on, no matter how difficult or dramatic it can be (hello, Dangerous Minds), her willingness is still an admirable trait even today.
Talent: Classy actress and the most perfect smile
Why she’s fierce: Any woman who can play a professional porn star, a mom and a politician and still manage to be so enchantingly beautiful and humble is definitely an actress worth admiring. With her sensible red-toned hair and her infectious freckled fair skin, Julianne is definitely the girl-next-door out of her fellow fierce peers. From making us laugh in Crazy, Stupid, Love to rocking the Sarah Palin updo bun like it was hers, she is unstoppable – and who would want to stop her? Oh, and lets not forget her aging gracefully appearance, which even makes slightly more envious.
Talent: Trailblazer, actress & helping all women get their groove back
Why she’s fierce: One of the most powerful and influential African American actresses, Angela Bassett is the go-getter of the group of five women. Her charismatic beauty and adaptable acting skills can be seen in over 36 movies, and she has single-handled-ly taught women of every age that confidence is really all you need to get your groove back. Besides her professional career and sophisticated fashion sense (I could definitely see her shopping with Michelle Obama, by the way) her dedication to philanthropy causes such as UNICEF Ambassador also shows us this leading lady is every bit caring as she is talented – a combo not every celebrity can achieve.
¨Talent: Comedian and actress
¨Why she’s fierce: Men will be the first ones to admit this fact: funny women are sexy. Like seriously sexy. So, it's no surprise that Julia made this list. With a title as one of the few women holding a record number of Emmy nominations and awards and one of the original Saturday night Live comedians in the 80s, she stands alone as one of the funniest women of her generation. Whether you watched her as Elaine Benes on Seinfeld or as Christine Campbell on The New Adventures of Old Christine, her bubbly, and obviously, funny personality and her always in tact brown curls make watching her enjoyable and with her new HBO show, Veep, she proves she is only getting more funny with age.
