Influential, Inspirational And Bizarre: Women Applauded For Very Different Reasons
In today's world celebrities are under close media scrutiny and constant pressure to impress. However, some of these ladies thrust themselves into the limelight with their courageous beliefs and raw talents, whilst others choose to promote themselves in different ways, from using their sexuality to hogging the spotlight. Meet the 'attention queens', from the controversial to the classic.
1. Kylie Jenner and Malala
Both lovely ladies turned eighteen years of age this year - a landmark birthday and a sign of the transition from child to adult that every young person goes through. The former was given Hermes Birkin bag, a Ferrari car, changed outfits at least once and partied in Quebec AND Hollywood, whilst the latter celebrated by opening a school for Syrian refugee girls in Lebanon and called on world leaders to invest in "books not bullets."
2. Adele and Kate Moss
Arguably two of the most recognisable women in the world, both have achieved huge progress and great personal success in their respective industries. Interestingly both ladies were asked recently to pose for the famous men's magazine 'Playboy'. The brave 41-year-old supermodel leapt at the chance to don those iconic bunny ears for the brand's 60th birthday issue, whilst the 27-year-old Oscar winning singer politely declined the offer to take her clothes off...
3. Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus
No-one could accuse either of these talented women of not knowing how to make huge chart hits. Nevertheless, when it comes to grabbing the headlines, these two have VERY different ways of going about things. Whilst 25-year-old Tay Tay promotes an image of friendship and kindness - sharing intimate photos with fans of her baking delectable treats with celeb pals and giving donations to various charities, 22-year-old Miley prefers outrageous outfits and performing lewd dance routines on stage.
4. Emma Watson and Lindsay Lohan
Both of these women have made their own mark on the acting industry. Meanwhile off screen, they have rather different priorities and passions. The 25-year-old is a Harvard Graduate, United Nations Ambassador and passionate about politics, equality and is a feminist campaigners. The 27-year-old 'Parent Trap' actress on the other hand loves a good party and is known for her wild ways.
5. Lady Gaga and Sarah Jessica Parker
The singer (29) loves to cause a bit of controversy and her bizarre & skimpy outfit choices don't just stay on the stage as part of her epic pop performances. The 'Paparazzi' singer is often snapped out and about in everything from meat dresses to latex bras and pants. Other stars meanwhile can share their love of fashion in other ways. Sarah Jessica Parker (50) build up a following as legendary style icon Carrie Bradshaw in the TV series 'Sex and the City' and continues to have a avid following
6. Kim Kardashian and Angelina Jolie
Both of these mothers are famous for fairly opposite reasons. One's a 35-year-old reality TV star and one of the most photographed women in the world, whilst the other is a 40-year-old an actress, director and special envoy to the United Nations. Kimmy K is sometimes accused of being famous just for being famous, but we'd never say that ;-)
