10 Female Celebrities Who Women Admire Most

3rd Annual Diane Von Furstenberg Awards - Show

Hollywood has always been a mostly male dominated industry. It’s no secret that for years, women were forced out of the spotlight and into the background so that men could take on the lead roles.  However, while women in the industry still struggle, things have certainly gotten better and there are several female celebrities who have become some of the biggest names in the industry.  Although it’s always nice to see women getting more roles, sometimes those roles make it hard for real life women to connect with them. Because of that, it’s still relatively hard to come across a female celebrity that other females actually look up to.   Fortunately though, that isn’t always the case. Here are 10 female celebrities who women admire the most.

Sofia Vergara
