It takes a lot for females to be at the top of their industry - whether it's fashion, food or music, one has to possess the vision, the talent, and the ambition to make it into a reality. In addition to an incredible work ethic and a unique look, a girl boss has to multi-task and dominate all industries, not just her own. Here's our pick of 5 female influencers that make this juggling act look easy.
5. Jourdan Dunn
Currently the new face of Burberry with legendary Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn is best known for her work on the high fashion runway. She's a supermodel mom that has strutted in Prada, Balmain and Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows as well as Beyoncé's Yonce video, and if that's not enough, she is also a low-key foodie. With her own online show "Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn", she cooks up easy recipes with the likes of 2 Chainz, Wale, and even the Yonce girls, Joan Smalls and Chanel Iman.
4. Vashtie Kola
Designer, Director and DJ are a few of the many titles that Vashtie carries. Besides directing Kendrick Lamar's A.D.H.D video and creating her own clothing line VIOLETTE, she is also one of the creators of the monthly 90's party called 1992 which has been thrown worldwide. If that isn't enough cred to deem her the Queen of Cool, Kola is also the first female to collaborate with Jordan brand on her own Jordan sneaker.
When it comes to balancing work and play, Rihanna does it all with poise. She's been crowned music's pop princess with seven Grammy awards and is a noted fashion icon. She also has her own line of fragrances for men and women, a clothing line in collaboration with River Island, and a television program called 'Styled to Rock.' This Island girl was also recently named PUMA's brand ambassador and Creative Director for women's wear, so PUMA athletic wear is about to get RIH-eal.
2. Cara Delevingne
Cara Delevingne has taken the fashion world by storm with her fun and crazy personality and even crazier eyebrows. She's graced the covers of Vogue from seven different countries and was named 'Model of the Year' at the British Fashion Awards. She has also parlayed her modeling talents into an acting career. Delevingne has had a cameo in Die Antwoord's 'Ugly Boy' music video and recently worked alongside Pharrell in the Chanel short film, 'Reincarnation,' directed by Karl Lagerfeld.
1. Beyoncé Knowles
Of course this wouldn't be a complete list of female influencers without Beyoncé on the list. Queen Bey has 17 Grammy Awards, making her the third most honored female artist in music history. Besides her amazing vocals and confident Sasha Fierce alter ego, the talented songwriter is also a mom, philanthropist to many organizations, and a fashion icon. In addition to her line House of Dereon, created with her mother, she has a partnership with Topshop to launch an athletic line in 2015. To top it off, Beyoncé was also named highest paid woman in music raking in a whopping $115 million in 2014 which is reportedly double of what she made last year.
