International Women's Day: Why Leading Ladies Inspire Me

Today is one of my favourite days of the year...International Women's Day! I knew that I wanted to do something creative this year for my blog and I have really enjoyed creating this post for you today. I have been working with my talented photographer Josey to create some really cool shots to be included in today's post. Today I have rounded up all the reasons as to why leading ladies inspire me so much to celebrate International Women's Day. Whether this is in a movie, in my family, somebody online, a could be anyone who inspires me! There's nothing like being a strong independent I right?

'Don't forget to fall in love with yourself first.' Carrie Bradshaw

'Good Morning Angels. Good Morning Charlie.' Charlies Angels 

'Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.' Elle Woods 

Seeing strong women in the film world playing leading roles is my absolute favourite. If a film has a bad ass, strong and incredible female leading character, then I know it's going to be good! We have started to see more and more of these characters taking to the screen and I think it sends out such an amazing message. There are so many female characters who we have seen on screen that I find so inspirational and love to watch in the films. Since I am such a huge film fan, I thought that it was only right to shoot some images for today's post inspired by some of my favourite female characters. I decided to pick Elle Woods from Legally Blonde, Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City and the ladies from Charlies Angels. These characters haven been an inspiration to me in the film world and I really love the characters that they play! Elle Woods has style, passion, confidence, motivation, aspirations and so much more! She is such an iconic character that everyone loves. Carrie Bradshaw is also another iconic character known for her style! She has been a leading lady that I loved for years and I find her character so inspiring. Hard working, passionate, determined and so classy. Finally, the ladies of Charlies Angels are epic. They are so bad ass, powerful, clever and so gorgeous. I have always loved the films are they are such empowering women!

There are so many different female characters out there that people find inspiring for many different reasons. Seeing ladies lead the film world is such an amazing thing to see and it makes me really happy that these ladies are getting the opportunities like this and having the chance to play some really iconic characters. Captain Marvel is one that I am really exited to see this month! There are already some amazing women within the Marvel universe, but Captain Marvel is one to have her very own film and is going to be an iconic character for sure! Ladies can be super heroes just as much as men! I would be so interested to hear all about your favourite iconic leading ladies of the screen. There are so many that I love but I bet there are so many that I haven't heard of before which means more films for me to watch! If you're wanting to feel inspired and empowered, then I 100% recommend watching a film which has an amazing female character in!
