she did the freak, never missing a beat

Tomorrow is a beautiful day.

Last week, I did a post about 20 men I admire. It was a really fun post and there's tons of men I admire, but I would now love to invent a similar meme about 20 women I admire. Most of these women, I have already done a post or two dedicated to them, so I'll link to that if there is one. I will tag 9 people (Keith [the originator of the 20 men meme], Libby, Maya, Mimi, Miss Karen, Jill, copperoranges, and this wheel's on fire) to get it going, but I'm not going to say you have to tag people because, let's face it, that kind of pressure is annoying.

20 Women I Admire:
1. Grace Slick
2. Catherine James
3. Pattie Boyd
4. Anita Pallenberg
5. Eloise
6. Chan Marshall
7. Betty Davis
8. Elaine Benes
9. Erykah Badu
10. Sharon Tate
11. Courtney Brooke
12. Marianne Faithfull
13. Stevie Nicks
14. Pink
15. Fiona Apple
16. Pamela Des Barres
17. Gail Zappa
18. Zooey Deschanel
19. Kathy Griffin
20. Kate Hudson

Oh good god woman!! LOVE all of your picks (and pics)...there may be some overlap between ours, but I'll try and be inventive :)

Mimi said...

Grace Slick= Brilliance. Love Pattie Boyd. I love the Eloise books, it's so charming and I would've love to have grown up in the gorgeous Plaza Hotel.
I love them all! Stevie, Fiona, Zooey, Pink, Kathy, and Kate. They're all so wonderful


P. S. On a side note.. I've been a little uninspired with new songs lately, I really like the songs I have now but I am not IN LOVE with 'em. But I am glad I have Guns N Roses and AC/DC, thats a new change :]

Great choice, love Fiona Apple and Zooey amazing creative women.

Sarah Von said...

Awesome. I'd like to add Cameron Diaz - a non-marrier, an advocate for the environment, a small-boob-haver and, I suspect, a great gal pal.

Keith said...

Hey Molly! Wow! What a great list. I love all these women. I could definitely see having some of them on my own list. Thanks for the tag. I'll try to get it up asap. Cheers! said...

lol. I started this a week ago, but doing both men and women, coz I couldn't think of anything, and half the women on your list are on mine. lol.
Thanks for the tag!
The photo is actually me taking a jumper off, but the shutter speed was really slow i guess and it did that lol.

Cate said...

A lot of bathtub-photos here!
Erykah Badu looks cool in that picture.
Wow, how thick are those lines around Courtney Brooke's eyes??
Sometimes I can't find any word to describe Kate Hudson, other than "cute". I don't mean that in a disrespectful way though.

Jill said...

Your list is just simply perfection, Molly! I really like all of your choices, you have great taste ;) xo

WAT said...

Patti Boyd, Sharon Tate, and Stevie Nicks are all fine choices my dear.

Kate Hudson is not someone I am really into admiring, but I have to say she still happens to be in one of the great rock movies of all time of course: ALMOST FAMOUS.

Courtney Brooke said...

Love you too. xoxo Courtney Brooke
