Sakina M'sa
Because her name means serenity. Because she moved to Paris at twenty and made a name for herself as a designer in the fashion capital of the world. And because she is the only clothier we know of to have earned the endorsement of postmodern French philosopher Jean Baudrillard.
Sofia Vergara
Because of her fantastic laugh, her thickening accent, and her willingness to discuss her chest
Liu Wen
From our colleagues: "She is a top model who started her career in 2005 when she entered the New Silk Road World Model Contest. In 2009, she became the first woman of East Asian descent to walk the Victoria's Secret fashion show. She is natural and pure, like a clear fountain of water

Siboney Lo
Born in Santiago and raised outside New Orleans, this actress wears short hair better than any woman since the Jazz Age.
Kaltouma Nadjina
This sprinter holds the Chadian record for the 100-meter, 200-meter, 400-meter, and 800-meter events.
Central African Republic
Monique Bozize
"First Lady" doesn't do her justice. More like First Woman to Use This Kind of Power to Cure This Much Disease in Her Country's History.
Cayman Islands
Selita Ebanks
This Victoria's Secret Angel proves the minuscule Caribbean archipelago has more to offer the world than tax shelters and shady shell companies.
Cape Verde
Because her visceral, jubilant stage manner makes us want nothing more than to dance with her. And we can't dance.

Rachel McAdams
Because we loved her even when she played the meanest of mean girls, so it's only natural we should continue to love her as the women she's played have gotten progressively more perfect. And because we had no idea she was Canadian.

Calixthe Beyala
Born in Douala, Beyala moved as a teenager to France, where she became one of the most prolific and acclaimed novelists writing in French.
