Here are 14 Girl Bosses You Should Look Up To

This March is known as International Women’s Month 2022, and the better way to commemorate the celebration is by recognizing the industry’s girl bosses.

The last few years have been transformative for women, and every day we witness more and more women being given the opportunity to achieve their goals. Of course, individuals who pave the way are important in every movement, and these well-known women have not failed in their attempts to conquer the economic world.

Kate Hudson

When Kate founded Fabletics in 2013, she got everyone on board with the athleisure craze. Her objective was to encourage people to be active while still looking good. Since then, Fabletics has built 35 locations and released far too many fashionable collections to keep track of. It's also become a celebrity favorite, handling collaborations with Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland to help others feel confident in their own skin.

Kristin Cavallari

Kristin has built Uncommon James into the home products and jewelry brand of her dreams since its inception in 2017. In the first season of Very Cavallari, an empty warehouse was transformed into a "go-to" for modern ladies on the go. With only one flagship location in Nashville, the reality star has kept the lucrative brand mostly online. According to this girl boss, this is just the start.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Two is always better than one! Mary-Kate and Ashley took over Hollywood at a young age and are still in charge—albeit in a different way. In 2006, the twins founded The Row, which has now become a fixture during New York Fashion Week. They established Elizabeth and James, a more contemporary clothing line, a year later, and their fashion empire was valued at $1 billion.


Beyoncé knows what she's doing when it comes to establishing an activewear line. When she introduced Ivy Park, the Homecoming star shared a video on how she pushes her body to its boundaries. So, if you're looking for motivation to work out, look no farther than Queen Bey. She'll also collaborate with Adidas on an exclusive Ivy Park line, which will comprise footwear, apparel, and a complete relaunch of the athleisure label.

Drew Barrymore

Drew is a huge fan of floral power! Flower Films, a production firm that produced movies like Charlie's Angels, was co-founded by the Hollywood nobility in 1995. She merged her business into FLOWER by Drew, a one-stop-shop that includes her production, beauty, and home brands, to mention a few. Her newest House Collection, which provides over 200 stylish and inexpensive solutions for furnishing your home, was recently launched in collaboration with Walmart.

Jessica Simpson

You may recognize her as a singer and actress from Hollywood. The Jessica Simpson Collection, however, has developed an empire for the fashion designer behind any stage. The business also sells purses, sunglasses, accessories, jewelry, shoes, and fragrances in addition to apparel.


For this Hollywood icon, Fenty Beauty was just the beginning. Rihanna announced a collaboration with LVMH, the world's largest luxury conglomerate, to launch a new fashion line named Fenty this summer. According to the New York Times, Rihanna will be the first woman in the company to launch her own brand, joining the likes of Dior, Givenchy, and Fendi. We're excited to see what else this ultimate female boss has planned.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Are you a fan of the healing crystals craze? Gwyneth Paltrow is to blame! Goop, the Oscar-winning founder's unusual lifestyle company, has grown from a weekly newsletter to a $250 million wellness juggernaut. The web-based company currently has its own beauty, wellness, home, and fashion product lines. Goop will also be available on Netflix later this year, according to Variety.

Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny has never been one of The Real Housewives of New York City's regular cast members. The reality personality has been a trailblazer for tasty healthy alternatives to some of our favorite indulgences, such as Margarita Monday. In 2011, she founded the Skinnygirl Cocktail Company to provide low-calorie alternatives to our favorite cocktails. Skinnygirl has grown into a lifestyle brand that includes a clothing line, healthy snacks, and Bethenny's favorite wellness goods.

Reese Witherspoon

If you've ever wondered where Reese gets her southern belle style, Draper James is the answer. The design and lifestyle brand was founded by the Big Little Lies star in 2015, and it was named after her grandparents (how lovely)! She's also founded Hello Sunshine, a female-led media company, and written Whiskey in a Teacup, a New York Times best-selling novel. Is there anything that Elle Woods can't accomplish?

Gina Rodriguez

Gina has created a name for herself as a Latina and female advocate. She had to go even further and co-found Naja, a lingerie company that encourages women of all shapes, sizes, and ambitions. The Jane the Virgin actress accompanied Catalina Girald, the company's CEO, on her aim to alter women's lives—which they have since they mostly hire single and working mothers. Nothing beats girl bosses supporting other girl bosses!

Jessica Alba

While the working mother of three began her career in Hollywood as an actress, she is now one of the industry's most powerful businesswomen. Jessica founded The Honest Company with Christopher Gavigan in 2011, and it is currently worth just around $1 billion. The health brand's initial inventory comprised housekeeping and infant items, but since 2015, it has expanded to include beauty and skincare products.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie was crowned the youngest self-made billionaire in 2019 by Forbes. Since launching Kylie Cosmetics in 2015, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has amassed a $900 million cosmetic empire. The newest collection from Kylie Cosmetics and Ulta is currently out, so get your hands on it... if you're still able to!
