AliceCorrine’s Top 10 Female Celebrities of 2014

Forget Barbara Walter’s list of the most fascinating people of 2014 – I mean, how was Scarlett Johanssen relevant in 2014? Sorry Babs, but our list is much more compelling.

10. Clarissa Ward – this 60 Minutes reporter gave the interview of the year when she interviewed pro-ISIS radicals, providing a rare insight into the minds of extremists. She is well-versed in foreign affairs – her coverage of Syria has previously earned her two Emmy’s and a Peabody award.

9. Susan Wojcicki – she is not only the CEO of YouTube but is also currently pregnant with her fifth child. At 46, she is eighth months pregnant and is running one of the country’s hottest companies. Her journey started 16 years ago when she and her husband rented out their garage to Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who went on to found Google. She later became one of their employees. We’re not sure how she does it but she’s definitely an inspiration.

Wojcicki says she's glad she stuck it out as a tech executive and says that as time goes on it does get easier.

8. The women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault – although we don’t know all their names and faces, their stories of sexual abuse by Bill Cosby are all eerily similar. A comedian, named Hannibal Burress, brought these accusations back to the public’s attention this year when he talked about it in his act – the video went viral. (Bill Cosby settled out of court with one victim in a 2006 sexual assault case.) These women found their voices and were brave enough to finally come forward. Hopefully this will help them heal and prevent others from the same fate.

7. Amal Alamuddin – this London based lawyer captured George Clooney’s fickle heart with her brains and beauty and instantly became a style icon with her grace and poise.

6. Gwen Stefani – made us remember why we loved her so much when she joined NBC’s The Voice this year as a coach. Her sweet personality and fierce style, combined with her “phwiendship” with Pharrell, just make her irresistible.

5. Gwyneth Paltrow – she coined the most talked about phrase of the year with her “conscious uncoupling.” Of course only Gwyneth could pull off a feat as seemingly impossible as a friendly divorce – but in the end it did give us all pause for a new way to look at one of life’s most unpleasant and complicated events.

4. Kendall Jenner – we didn’t think it was possible for another of Kris Jenner’s daughter’s to soar to super stardom but in 2014 Kendall Jenner did just that. She was one of fashion’s most sought after models and was also named as the face of Estee Lauder. Not only that, she currently has 17 million followers on Instagram – just 6.5 million shy of her famous older sister, Kim.

3. Kim Kardashian – whether you’re a fan or not, it’s been hard not to notice Kim Kardashian this year. Her wedding whirlwind that took place in France and Italy; her Vogue cover with husband Kanye West; and her “break the Internet” naked photos all occurred in 2014. As Anna Wintour said, “Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”

2. Taylor Swift – Ed Sheeran calls his famous friend an old soul. Maybe she is, and that is why she seems wise beyond her years. She certainly seems perfect to us. Whatever her secret is, her fans and friends are fiercely loyal. Her new album, 1989 sold over $1.2 million in it’s first week. Shake that off Diplo.

1. Malala Yousafzai – in a year filled with unspeakable violence the top spot on our list must go to Malala.  At the age of 17, Malala won the Nobel Peace Prize for her struggle against the suppression of children and young people, and for the right of all children to education. We should all be as brave as her.
