Stylish celebrity feminists are a lot more common than you would think. Our original post lists Keira Knightley and Janelle Monáe as proud feminists with head-turning wardrobes, here are seven more feminist style icons.
If you don’t want long curly hair and wine-stained lips, you’re doing it wrong. Not only is Lorde and amazing musician, she’s a die-hard feminist with a strong vision of her craft. She graced the cover of what is basically Canada’s Vogue, Fashion, before her 20th birthday, putting gender roles and double standards on full blast. Go Lorde, go!
Does it really come as a surprise that Kerry Washington, the woman who plays Olivia Pope in Scandal is a feminist? The shows breaks records, being one of the most-watched shows ever to star a woman of colour as the lead actor. Washington looks sharp on and off the red carpet, is a super activist in her precious spare time (including charities like VDAY), and she’s been interviewed on Feministing, so ’nuff said.
Zoe Saldana has been lampooned by feminists and non-feminists alike for what may be considered some pretty naïve views on race, gender, and colorism, especially with regards to her role as Nina Simone in the eponymous movie, Nina. That being said, she is 100% girl power–every interview she does it seems she has something to say on the matter, whether it be Fashion or Flare.
Lily Allen seem so to have been on a journey in the last year in terms of her identification as a feminism and understanding of feminism, but she claims the label now and has said some pretty darn feminist things, so there’s that. Our hearts ache for her prom-dress-and- Nike-runners style from when she first came on the scene, but no one can deny her polished, Chanel-friendly looks are more than a little enviable.
It seems that if you’re in the limelight, you must be a fashionable feminist–Zooey Deschanel, Zoe Saldana above, and here Zoe Kazan all identify as feminists! Kazan has made our site a few times for her feminist leanings, and with her filmmaking career continuing to rise (she wrote and starred in Ruby Sparks) we are always keen to hear more from her.
FIRST AID KIT
Sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg of the band First Aid Kit aren’t shy about their views on feminism, having made several appearances on Rookie alone. The amazing music and bohemian style have us crushin’ hard.
