Iconic Women of Our Time

These women are the most celebrated and admired icons- none of which were born perfect. (No, Audrey Hepburn didn’t come out of her mother’s womb wearing a Givenchy gown and pearls.. or with that name at that.) And as hard to imagine it is, some of them were mere plain-janes (and sometimes worse) before each of the drastic makeovers they went through. So it’s about time you quit sulking about and blaming your gene pool. If they could do magic like this before the time of fancy hair extensions, miraculous age defying makeup or plastic surgery, then there must be hope for everyone now.
