WCW Everyday - The Women Inspiring Us
So in an ode to our empowerment ethos, this week we are taking a look at our WCW’s - the women that inspire us every day.
Whether it be because of their style, their sass, or the shear strength radiating out of them, the women who touch upon the lives of us in the Me-Me HQ are at the heart of our inspiration for everything we do - and we hope upon reading this, you will feel inspired too!
1 - The Knowles Sisters
Solange and Beyonce, the ultimate sister powerhouse in music and fashion. These women are an obvious choice for our WCW list - they’re fashionable, fierce feminists - Just last week, Beyonce bought out Topshop’s shares in her sought-after ‘Ivy Park’ line, following the Phillip Green scandal that has recently come to light, and Salonge is a fore-front activist for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ Movement. These ladies rule everything!
2 - Kathleen Zellner
Now, for those of our followers who aren’t QUITE up to date with all the latest Netflix happenings, Kathleen Zellner is the lawyer currently representing Steven Avery on the second season of Making A Murderer. She is quick witted, extremely intelligent and an absolute force to be reckoned with, and watching her on #MakingAMurderer2 gave us girl power vibes all day - If we have half the strength of this woman at the age of 61, we’re happy.
3- Laverne Cox
Laverne Cox is a woman of many firsts for our generation - the first openly Transgender woman to be nominated for a Prime time Emmy, as well as the first Transgender woman to appear on the front cover of Cosmo, and have her own own waxwork model made in madame Tussaud’s, Fair to say, we are in awe of this woman - she is fierce, fabulous and has paved the way for so many people in the LGBT community to realize they too, can be and achieve anything they want to. A queen!
4 - The Kardashian Klan
Love them or hate them, the Kardashian family essentially rule all aspects of popular culture today. They are trend-setting, reality TV moguls, and chances are some of the clothes in your wardrobe were inspired by them. These days they are setting their sights higher than being just reality TV family, and have been involved in raising awareness for social causes, including Gun Control, Homelessness and the Hurricane Harvey victims. Good for you gals!
5 - Dua Lipa
Due Lipa’s style is absolute fire, so no wonder she is a style inspiration for us at the Me-Me HQ. This lady has got layering on point, can make real-life motorcycle pants look as natural as skinny jeans and has got killer eyebrows to boot. She also an ambassador for Unicef - Dua, we are obsessed!
6 - Cardi B
No need to introduce this lady - Cardi B is everywhere you look at the moment; She is topping the charts, front row at fashion shows. and throwing shoes at our other favorite female rappers (queue - Nicki Minaj), but that’s not why we love her. Cardi B (Born Belcalis Almanzar) grew up in the Bronx, was part of a gang from age 16, and began stripping at the age of 19 to provide for her family. Fast forward to 2018, and she is a music pioneer, and a confident activist for feminism and women of color. Cardi encompasses the power of women everywhere, and is evidence that we can all be whatever we want to be.
