Glamour Celebrates 12 Female Icons

The April issue of Glamour features a pretty awesome spread of current female stars channeling icons in women’s history. My favorites? Alexis Bleddel as Rosie the Riveter, Hayden Panettiere as Amelia Earhart, and America Ferrera as Dolores Huerta. Some of the choices were more pop culture oriented (Lindsay Lohan as “Like A Virgin” era Madonna, Emma Roberts as Audrey Hepburn), while others were kind of random (Odette Yustman, Spencer Grammer, and Rumer Willis as “The Women Of Woodstock?”). Of course, had they devoted more pages to the feature, there were other women’s history icons I would have liked them to show, but maybe that’s because we’re devoting the whole month of March to National Women’s History Month, so I’ve got cool, kick ass women on the brain. Anyway, after the jump, 10 other female icons I would have loved to see portrayed by current female stars…1. India.Arie as Nina Simone
2. Carrie Underwood as Patsy Cline
3. Anne Hathaway as Diana Vreeland
4. Erykah Badu as Angela Davis
5. Ginnifer Goodwin as Judy Blume
6. Amy Sedaris as Gilda Radner
7. Sarah Silverman as Kathleen Hanna
8. Jill Scott as Madam CJ Walker
9. Giada de Laurentiis as Julia Child (okay, standing on stilts)
10. Rachel Bilson as Dorothy Parker
