Top 10 coolest celebrity moms

From Michelle Obama to Beyoncè, from Kris Jenner to Chiara Ferragni

Top 10 coolest celebrity moms From Michelle Obama to Beyoncè, from Kris Jenner to Chiara Ferragni

Their names are Michelle Obama, Kris Jenner, Chiara Ferragni, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham, Anna Wintour, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jessica Alba. They are strong, independent, powerful, rich, beautiful and cool women. They are able to rule financial empires, manage their families and shine on the red carpet. Each in her own way, with her own strengths and weaknesses, inspires us to believe in ourselves, to struggle, to study, to accept ourselves and to become better human beings. Like every mom does.

 

Anna Wintour

"I think its very important for children to understand that women work and that its fulfilling, and it doesnt mean that they love you any less or care about you any less."

Anna Wintour is still a controversial person. These days she has made people talk about her for wearing a pair of tracksuit pants during her lockdown and for the statements made by André Leon Talley who in his new memoir claims she is incapable of "human kindness". Feared, it is no coincidence that her cinematic alter ego is the severe Miranda Priestly of The Devil Wears Prada, it is true that Anna seems inflexible. She gets up at 5 a.m. and goes to bed at 10 p.m., at parties she doesn't stay more than twenty minutes, she doesn't have social profiles, but she is proud of her work for Vogue, a fashion bible she has directed for over 30 years from where she will continue to set the rules of style until the end of her days.

 

Kris Jenner

"My motivation is to be creative and have fun. You want to do something that keeps you on your toes the rest of your life and keeps you busy."

She is called "momager", describing her as just a skillful strategist and manipulator and criticizing her for struggling to bring her children to success. The truth is that Kris Jenner is a woman with an undeniable flair for business, who has turned from a hostess and mother into an entrepreneur capable of making gold out of everything (or almost everything) she touches. Starting from a mere reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which aired for the first time in 2007 with only 898,000 viewers watching the pilot, has made every member of the family a planetary star. Two examples: thanks to Kris' advice, Kendall is a much sought-after supermodel, a fixed presence on the catwalks around the world and the face of numerous advertising campaigns, while Kylie founded a cosmetics line Kylie Cosmetics with a billionaire turnover.

 

Michelle Obama

"I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them."

The book was a success with more than 10 million copies sold. From May 6, Becoming, the biography of Michelle Obama, becomes also a documentary available on Netflix that promises to be not only an intimate look at the life of the former American first lady, but a real hymn to self-esteem, ambition and women's emancipation.  In fact, who if not a black woman, a lawyer graduated at Princeton, mother of two girls, wife of a U.S. president, the most eco-friendly and rock'n roll first lady ever can teach us something about it?

 

Sarah Jessica Parker

"I am not a feminist. I believe in women and I believe in equality, but I think there is so much that needs to be done that I dont even want to separate it anymore. Im so tired of separation. I just want people to be treated equally."

For all of us she is Carrie Bradshaw, loyal friend of Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte, the girl in love with fashion and New York, with an insane passion for Big and Manolo Blahnik shoes. The career of Sarah Jessica Parker started, however, many years earlier in 1979. Sacrifice, determination, talent, luck and one of the most iconic figures in pop culture turned her into one of the people' favourite stars. On the other hand, when we need SJP, she is always there with the right film. Any examples? At Halloween watch Hocus Pocus, at Christmas The Family Stonet, if you want an indie movie opt for Ed Wood, if you need a romantic comedy press play on Failure to Launch.

 

Jennifer Lopez

"Beauty is only skin deep. I think what's really important is finding a balance of mind, body and spirit."

Singer, actress, dancer, producer, fashion icon, mother, JLo is always Jenny from the block. The living symbol that believing in yourself and working hard sometimes pays off. The eclectic artist is a tireless self-made woman, capable of perfectly and fearlessly embodying every nuance of her personality: from capricious diva to sexy girlfriend, from loving parent to businesswoman, from Latin woman who has achieved success inspiring many girls to follow their dreams to party girl.

 

Jada Pinkett Smith

"I think, as women, we have to stop being scared to be the women we want to be and we have to raise our daughters to be the women they want to be—not the women we think they should be." 

Jada Pinkett Smith is not only Will Smith's wife (for 23 years) or Jaden and Willow's mother. She has appeared in cult films, such as the Matrix trilogy. She has worked with directors such as Spike Lee, Michael Mann, Wes Craven and the Wachowski sisters, starring alongside Eddie Murphy, Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves. Above all, the actress is a strong woman who says out loud what she thinks directly and without fear. She proved it many times during Red Table Talk, her show on Facebook Watch. For a couple of years, Jada has been sitting at a red round table, together with her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, her daughter Willow and a group of female guests to talk openly about everything from sex to racism, from hair loss to self-harm. Always exposing herself personally and often revealing intimate details, amidst difficulties, mistakes and successes.

 

Victoria Beckham

"I have no time for women who don't support other women. It's the ultimate compliment when a woman tells you that you look good."

She was a member of the most popular girl band in the world and married football player David Beckham, with whom she had four children. She was a star, but Victoria Beckham wanted more. So, armed with tenacity and good taste, a characteristic that in the Spice Girls gave her the nickname Posh Spice, the former singer founded one of the most interesting fashion brands in recent years and recently launched her own beauty line.

 

Jessica Alba

"No matter how different women are, we all seem to share the guilt that we're not doing enough. If anything, I would say that as long as you're doing your best, it's more than enough."

Many of us remember her as the teenager in the '90s TV series Flipper-The New Adventures, even though her career exploded the following decade as the sci-fi heroine of Dark Angel, the dancer of Honey, the stripper of Sin City, the invisible woman in The Fantastic 4 or the girl who was looking for sunken treasures alongside Paul Walker in Into the Blue. Nowadays, Jessica Alba's life has changed. Mother of three children (Honor Marie, Haven Garner and Hayes) with film producer Cash Warren, she almost completely stopped acting to become a real businesswoman. In 2011, she founded The Honest Company, a brand that sells non-toxic products for the conscious consumer market ranging from household and early childhood items to cosmetics. Soon the project turned into a billionaire giant and, even if she now holds only 15% of it, Jessica with her sunny beauty and self-made woman charisma remains the best testimonial. Perhaps not everyone knows that the former actress is also a TikTok star.

 

Beyoncé

"We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead."

If they call it Queen B, there's a reason. She dances, sings, acts, is the wife of Jay-Z, the mother of three children and, at the same time, inspires millions of girls and boys around the world, teaching them the power to believe in themselves and the value of equality and emancipation. And she does everything great, so much so that even her pregnancies have become a source of creativity (remember the beautiful images to announce the expectancy of twins?) and strength.

 

Chiara Ferragni

"Be patient – if something is supposed to happen, its going to happen. Whenever Ive tried to force things, they didnt go right."

Someone wrote that if 2020 is the year of the death of the influencers, Chiara Ferragni will be the only one to survive. There is something inexplicably hypnotic and refreshing about this young woman who, starting from her image and a successful idea, has built a small financial empire. Despite the criticism, we all spent at least 5 minutes of this lockdown peeping at her, Fedez and the beautiful, super smiling Leo playing, having fun, eating, arguing and dancing (especially Leo).
