Janelle Monáe

With her sky-high pompadour, red pout and crisp tailored suits, singer Janelle Monáe has a look as inspiring as her music and she uses it as an outlet to battle sexism in the music industry. "It’s so important that we have as many different representations of women out there, so that the next generation of young girls knows that we don’t all have to take the same coordinates to get to the same destination,” she says.
