Naomi Campbell established herself in the late ’80s and early ’90s as one of the most popular and sought-after models in the world, and was one of the six models of her generation declared by the fashion industry and press as a “supermodel”. The model also acted in several films and TV shows, and even made her own R&B pop studio album.
After finding herself earning less than her caucasian model colleagues (despite being the most famous African-American model of her time), Campbell began investing in the political world. The now-49-year-old is an enthusiastic activist and philanthropist, fighting for racial equality between photoshoots. In 1991, she said, “I may be considered one of the top models in the world, but in no way do I make the same money as any of them.” Which is why she has since dedicated much of her career to fighting against racial bias.
Both us and Curtis's 13 million Instagram followers agree, that the 34-year-old Filipino-Australian actress, model, television host, VJ and recording artist is one of the most beautiful and talented beings Australia has ever produced. Did you know that she even wrote a successful children’s book?
The beautiful actress has received various awards and nominations, and even launched her own makeup line, called BLK Cosmetics. You don't get a body like that without some proper exercise and nutrition, which is why we were excited when Curtis launched a marathon called the "Heroes for Children Run", seeking to benefit UNICEF's "1,000 Days of Life" campaign.
Mila Kunis is a household name at this point, due to her jaw-dropping beauty and fantastic roles in various TV shows and romantic comedies. The actress gained her first critical acclaim for her performance in the 2010 psychological thriller, 'Black Swan'.
Mila Kunis was born in Soviet Ukraine, but her family quickly moved to the United States when she was just 7 years old. She was discovered by an agent shortly after enrolling in after-school acting classes and landed her first significant role at age 14, as Jackie Burkhart, in the American sitcom, 'That '70s Show'. That's also where she first met her current husband, Ashton Kutcher. Her other major films include 'Max Payne' and 'The Book of Eli', the fantasy film 'Oz the Great and Powerful', and comedies such as 'Ted' and 'Bad Moms'.
Our second Israeli beauty on the list is none other than Natalie Portman, arguably the best actress in the world. She was originally born as Neta-Lee Hershlag in Jerusalem and moved to the US in 1988. Portman has won numerous awards, including two Golden Globes and one Academy Award.
Portman has played in too many blockbusters and award-winning movies to count, with her newest films grossing hundreds of millions of dollars in the opening month. She is a strong supporter of the Democratic Party and campaigned for various nominees. She recently spoke at the Women's March in Los Angeles about the "Sexual Terrorism" she experienced in Hollywood. "I understood very quickly, even as a thirteen-year-old, that if I were to express myself sexually, I would feel unsafe. And that men would feel entitled to discuss and objectify my body to my great discomfort", Portman said at the #MeToo Event.
From her talented acting to her innocent Swedish beauty, actress Alicia Vikander couldn't stay unnoticed for too long. Alicia got her big break playing the artificially intelligent humanoid robot in the science fiction film, 'Ex Machina', and was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for the role. Vikander was born and raised in Sweden. She began acting as a child and trained as a ballet dancer from a young age.
Vikander identifies herself as a feminist and promotes gender equality in films. "I'd just made five films in a row" she explained, "and [Tulip Fever] was the first one where I had a scene with another woman...There's a change happening, and I want to be part of that. You see something like The Hunger Games or Insurgent proving that a female role can carry a successful blockbuster", she told The Guardian.
