Girls Who Slay: YOUR Top Inspirational Women!
As part of our Girls Who Slay month at Kate’s Clothing, we decided to round off Slay Season with a run-down of some of our customers, readers, and fans’ choices for their favourite Girls Who Slay! As part of our recent competition, we asked YOU to tell us some of the women who inspire you...and here’s who you chose! Read on to find out who KC's followers and friends think are the top Women Who Slay!
1. Friends & Family
You guys gave a whole load of shout-outs to your besties! It was truly heart-warming and inspirational to see so much love given to friends who’ve been there for you in thick and thin. We think anyone who’s there for you (whether it’s to go out drinking and dancing with you, or stick by you during hard times) is definitely worthy of a mention. You all slay, girl-friends!
Unsurprisingly, mums were a lot of people’s favourite women who slay – and rightly so! Grans, nannas, grannies and grandmas were also getting a lot of nominations! Much love to all the slay mammas out there! Sisters, cousins, daughters and wives were also a lot of people’s first choice – the people closest to us can be hugely inspirational, and it’s been so nice to read your heartfelt nominations!
The Mistress of the Dark herself seems to have been in inspiration to many, as she made an appearance in plenty of your competition entries! No one can really deny that the one and only Elvira is a woman who slays!
An obvious choice for favourite woman who slays, perhaps…but definitely a totally valid one! Many women and girls have been inspired over the years by the one and only teen cheerleader and vampire slayer, Buffy Summers! We love a positive, powerful role model, so Buffy is definitely both literally and metaphorically a slayer! Another honourable mention goes to fellow slayer Faith, who quite a few of our entrants chose!
4. Frida Kahlo
Feminist icon Frida Kahlo got a lot of love in our competition entries! Kahlo was a true pioneer, and wasn’t afraid to push the boundaries of what was expected of a female artist in her time. For that, she’s definitely a great choice for one of your favourite women who slay!
5. Black Friday
Gothic vlogger Black Friday was another popular choice, and along with a few other YouTubers, was chosen for being inspirational and helping others feel confident and comfortable in their skin, which is definitely one way to slay!
6. Ash Costello
Ash Costello was one of many female rock singers chosen as your favourite women who slay, and she got quite a few nominations – both for being a major style inspiration and a musician, plus her dedication to her fans. Keep slaying, Ash!
7. Tairrie B
Another fan favourite was slay girl and badass rapper/singer Tairrie B! We love her fearless attitude and creativity...another great choice for a Girl Who Slays!
8. Lzzy Hale
Lzzy Hale of Halestorm was another one of your favourites! We love a badass female musician, and Lzzy definitely knows how to slay on stage!
9. Rosa Parks
Many of you were inspired by the courageous Rosa Parks, who famously stood up to oppression by refusing to stand up on the bus so that white passengers could take her place. Rosa Parks is an incredibly inspiring woman, and a great choice for one of your favourite women who slay!
10. Kat Von D
Kat Von D got plenty of love for being a super creative and talented businesswoman, plus for being an advocate of animal rights – Kat Von D is definitely one of our fave Slay Belles!
The best of the rest…
We wish we could include all your great choices, but there have been a lot of entries! So here is a quick rundown of some of the rest of your favourite Girls Who Slay!
Dita Von Teese
Sheri Moon Zombie
Deloris Van Cartier
…and many more!
All your entries were heartfelt and personal to you, and it’s been awesome reading them and seeing who inspires you…it looks like we have a lot in common, ‘cause we think these girls slay too!
