The dance floor is all yours, Lady Leos! And we all know you wouldn't miss the opportunity to be in the spotlight for any reason in the world.
Happy beginning of Leo season! This vivacious and creative zodiac sign faces life with uncommon enthusiasm and determination. Leo women’s confident energy can become a real inspiration for the people around them: on the other hand, they are very self centered and act like they are in the center of the universe - it’s not a coincidence if their planetary ruler is the Sun. Comfortable in owning the power, Lioness ladies are natural leaders with a hard-working and ambitious attitude, but sometimes they tend to become a little bit autocratic. Usually characterized by an expressive and bold style, they take freedom very seriously and really need to be in charge of their own life. Leo women are spontaneous and risk takers, have a big sense of honor, and sometimes can be a bit dramatic.
What could possibly be this sign’s element? Fire, of course. Hot and attractive personalities, their burning energy deeply influences all around them.
Let’s discover our top 6 Lioness of this year:
Jennifer Lopez - July 24, 1969
J.Lo is the most fitting example of how Leos do love to be center stage. Actress, singer and dancer, this polyhedric artist loves career changes and - It almost goes without saying - she’s amazing in everything she does. For her first role in acting, Lopez became the most paid latin actress ever, and after her debut in the music industry in ‘99, she quickly reached incredible success and broke many all-time records as first Latin singer. In 2012, Forbes ranked her as the most powerful celebrity in the world, as well as the 38th most powerful woman in the world. This hard-working and vivacious personality seems unstoppable and, at the age of (almost) 52, she’s still incredibly flawless - how to forget her 2020 Super Bowl performance? We are totally fascinated and inspired by this stunning Leo.
Elisabeth Moss - July 24, 1982
Enterprising and ambitious from a young age, she didn't waste time, starting her acting career as a child and continuing no stop. She amazingly interpreted strong intelligent women who fight against a male-dominated society: how to forget the 1960s-era secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson in "Mad Men''? And - even more - June Osborne in The Handmaid's Tale, for which she won two Golden Globes, two Emmys, and two Critics’ Choice Awards. This great actress and talented Leo woman seems to be ready for any future acting challenge, and we are looking forward to seeing her in new inspiring roles.
Joanne Rowling - July 31, 1965
Author, philanthropist, film producer and screenwriter, she signed with her “Pen name” of JK Rowling what has then become the best-selling book series in history: - you already know it - Harry Potter. Johanne started from a condition of extreme poverty and progressively has reached universal success and richness to being named the world's first billionaire author by Forbes. This incredibly determined Leo, who never stopped despite many initial refusals, really faced the challenges of being a woman writer: once she finally found a publishing house, she was obliged to hide her female identity under a gender neutral pseudonym for “image” reasons. We all know how it ended: the fantastic universe Rowling birth to reached planetary and unprecedented success involving a transgenerational audience and creating a real subculture.
Viola Davis - August 11, 1965
This American actress is well known for her unique talent that earned her numerous awards. Her regal presence - typical of the sign - and determination in achieving her dream career, despite poor origin and non-privileged condition, reflect the authentic Leo woman’s traits. Davis was the first Black woman and youngest actor to achieve the "Triple Crown of Acting" winning an Oscar award, a Primetime Emmy Award, and two Tony Awards. Davis has taken many opportunities to speak up about women rights, took part of the #MeToo movement, and her own production activity has often focused on racial discrimination; a real Leo to look up to, that fights and stands up for what she believes. Time magazine named Davis one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2012 and 2017, and in 2020 she was ranked ninth on "The 25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century" list by the The New York Times.
Madonna - August 16, 1958
Impossible to describe in just a few lines, this iconic personality really marked an era. She broke through in the early ‘80s and basically never stopped since, deeply influencing pop culture. This Leo lady really knew what she wanted from the beginning, when she moved to NY at the age of 20 to pursue success and, thanks to her talent, stubborn personality and determination, she became what she’s today. Madonna’s continuous reinvention over time shows her great versatility and intelligence. Her universal success and trans-generational audience, her boldness, provocative attitude and trasgressive style really make her THE true Leo star.
Coco Chanel - August 19, 1883
Coco Chanel and the iconic brand she founded became a real culture: now, 100 years on from her first collection, her style is still considered as a timeless fashion standard and keeps inspiring generations of designers. Her international success can be mainly referred to her personality traits, like determination, willpower, and desire for independence. Oh yes, she’s obviously a Leo! This ambitious woman had to fight and develop resilience before becoming what she became: despite the enormous success of her fashion clothing, Coco was forced to take a 10-year break from fashion and close all her shops because of World War II. When she came back to the fashion world, she really started defining a new standard for woman attire, differentiating herself from the flowery style and femininity of Christian Dior while designing functional and comfortable suits, big pockets where a businesswoman could put their cigarette case and practical over-shoulder bags. That’s where her revolution started.
