#10: Sophia Loren

Born in 1934, Sophia Loren is the very definition of glamour. The Italian beauty started off her career as a beauty pageant contestant when she was just a teen. Following small roles in Italian films, she became an international sensation by starring in flicks alongside big names such as Frank Sinatra and Cary Grant. On and offscreen, she became well known for her beauty and her signature cat eye makeup that fans still recreate to this day. In her late 80s, Loren’s unforgettable style and allure continues to captivate the world.

#9: Beyoncé

As one of the biggest celebrities of the 21st century, Beyoncé has perfected the art of glamour. The Texas born singer, actress and entrepreneur breaks records and does so always looking like a superstar. Aside from her obvious beauty and stunning features, her style game is on another level. Whether it’s dripping in diamonds or rocking the finest denim, she is always miles ahead of the pack. A visionary, she’s not afraid to make bold and exciting choices. Her outfits aren’t just fashion, they’re a conversation. Perhaps the most glamorous thing about Queen Bey is that she uses her artistry to confront, uplift and inspire, which is the most beautiful thing of all.

#8: Lena Horne

From singing to dancing to acting, Lena Horne was a triple threat, who broke barriers and did so with style. Born in Brooklyn, Horne kicked off her career performing in famous venues like New York City’s Cotton Club and Cafe Society. Hollywood came knocking, and Horne answered with a powerful punch that helped pave a path for other performers of color. Her silky vocals and drop dead gorgeous face turned her into an undeniable star.

#7: Anna May Wong

A shining star in the early days of Hollywood, Anna May Wong was a trailblazer in the movie industry. She longed for movie stardom from a young age, when she would skip school to visit sets in her hometown of Los Angeles. Eventually, her ambitions paid off and she became a full time actress. Despite her long list of credits, Wong was often cast in stereotypical roles and she spoke out and fought against the racism in the industry. In 2022, 61 years after her death, she became the first Asian American person to appear on US currency. An undeniable beauty, she lit up the big screen but also sparked a desire to create a better world.

#6: Rihanna

When Rhianna hits the red carpet, it’s as if she’s the “Only Girl (In the World).” The singer, actress and business mogul began her career at a young age. She’s put out hit after hit, situating herself at the top of both the music and fashion charts. For years, she has been counted on to provide a stunning appearance at the glamorous Met Gala. But her most iconic moment came in 2017, when she launched her own cosmetic brand, Fenty Beauty. The line features a wide shade range, providing makeup wearers of color with a selection that is unmatched. Not only is Rihanna glamourous, she also knows the importance of making sure everyone has the opportunity to also feel that way.

#5: Cary Grant

Suave. Debonair. Dapper. These are just a few of the words that describe the incomparable Cary Grant. A fixture of the silver screen, this England born movie star was the definition of a leading man. From “His Girl Friday” to “North By Northwest,” his acting ability earned him some of the biggest roles in Hollywood, especially when charm was called for. In fact, at one point he was even offered one of the most charismatic parts of all time: James Bond. Rarely seen without a suit on, Grant was the poster boy for the Golden Age of Hollywood, a bygone era when glitz and glamour were at the forefront of the industry.

#4: Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor’s career in Hollywood began at a young age, but no one could have predicted what an icon she would become in her adult years.

From her tumultuous love life to her lavish customs, including her own private jet, she lived a life of luxury. Famously, she also had a massive and very expensive jewelry collection. However, she didn’t keep all of it to herself. The two time Oscar winner shared her love of beauty with the world by launching a highly successful billion dollar fragrance line, which carries on her legacy.

Not only was Grace Kelly a movie star, she was also an actual real life princess. After a successful film career, Pennsylvania born actress left the bright lights of Hollywood for the French Riviera. In 1956, Kelly married Prince Rainier III and became Princess of Monaco. The screen icon turned royalty lived a life that sounds like it was right out of a picture she could have starred in. From her dazzling blue eyes to her elegant style, you could not get more classy than Kelly. Long after her untimely and tragic death in 1982, she continues to live on by inspiring fashion designers like Zac Posen and Oscar de la Renta.
