Meet the women we love

Last updated on: March 08, 2017 14:32 IST

A few of the many, many, MANY faces of women we love, respect and desire.

A girl should be two things -- who and what she wants, legendary designer Coco Chanel declared.

A few of the many, many, MANY faces of women we love, respect and desire.

 

Jai Maa Furiosa!

She gives it as good as she gets.

 

Lady Armstrong

Eve teasers, oglers and stalkers of the world, beware.

You will huff and puff while she roughs you up and tosses you like some frisbee in a park.

 

The Hero

She'll take a bullet to save you in the line of duty.

 

Ms Kick Ass

She's dreamy. She's deadly.

She can be both -- wrap and wring you around her finger.

Better behave.

 

Manic pixie dream girl

She retains her sense of wonderment and finds joy in the tiniest things.

 

Sexy and not sorry!

She's hot, knows it, loves it and flaunts it.

Got a problem? Get a life. 

 

Dragon Boss!

Slays it #likeaboss. One. COLD. Glare. At. A. Time.

 

Badass biker!

Backseats are boring when you're a leader with a need for speed.

 

The adorable narcissist

She's got her priorities in place, alright!

 

The BFF!

Hurt her friend and she'll hurt you right back. And how!

 

Lady Jughead!

There's nothing more attractive than a woman enjoying a plateful of carbs.

 

The Punisher

IMAGE: Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally.

Doubt her knowledge on sensitive subjects and she'll go to great lengths to make her point.

And shut you up for life. L.I.F.E.

 

Damsel-in-Charge

IMAGE: A scene from Tangled.

Why bother Prince Charming for a rescue when you've got a pan and kilometres of hair?

 

Mess me not!

IMAGE: Octavia Spencer in The Help.

The hell you don't. You heard what she said.

 

Wild & Free

IMAGE: Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.

Uptight much, she'll teach you a thing or two about letting your hair down.

 

Just Because...

She is lydat wonly. And we plain love her for that, don't we?

 

The Great Girl Gang

As Cyndi Lauper famously sang, Girls Just Want To Have Fun. Case in point.
