Zodiac Birthdays: Our Favorite Aquarius Icons

It’s officially Aquarius season, and we wanted to pay a tribute to some Aquarian icons we adore. 

The Independent. Aquarians are deep thinkers and humanitarians.  They strive for equality among all humans, they’re highly intellectual and sometimes shy.  Their progressiveness makes them seem quite unique and eccentric.

From humanitarians and musicians with attitude, to movie stars with iconic roles, we’re obsessed with these Aquarius dolls. Read more below!
Paris Hilton, b. January 25, 1981
The inventor of reality tv and modern day fame, savvy businesswoman Paris Hilton was the ultimate #goals of the early 2000s. Bring back the Louis Vuitton bag and Juicy Couture sweatsuit combination aesthetic ASAP.
Sharon Tate, b. January 24, 1943
A classic beauty and fashion icon, actress and model Sharon Tate is one of the ultimate symbols of the 1960s. Making a mark by starring in cult classics like Valley of the Dolls and Man from U.N.C.L.E, Tate's legacy carries on today with two different actresses portraying her in films this year alone.

Where do we even start!  Talk about the ultimate humanitarian.  Thank you Ellen for always making the world smile and for giving back unconditionally.  Thank you for being fearless and kind.  We love you!!

Oprah Winfrey, b. January 29,1954
Next is another power house we adore.  She's a media executive, actress, talk show host, television producer and philanthropist.  Known for The Oprah Winfrey Show, she broke all stereotypes of the typical "TV host."  She addressed issues that were important and she continuously gave back.  She's so iconic she even had an exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.  I mean, come on.

 

Justin Timberlake, b. January 31, 1981
Happy birthday month to an Aquarius heartthrob!  We got him to thank for our childhood anthems and posters.  From his *NSYNC days to now, we adore this guy.  
Shakira, b. February 2, 1977
Becoming one of the highest paid Colombian artists ever, Shakira made a huge mark in the music scene not just in America but the rest of the world too.  She even started charities including The BareFoot Foundation to help children in her native Colombia. Not to mention, this babe can dance. But we knew that.

 

James Dean, b. February 8, 1931
Known for his bad boy image, raw masculinity, and rebel attitude, James Dean became one of the largest cultural icons ever.  To this day he's the epitome of cool and a real fashion icon.

Emma Bunton, b. January 21, 1976 
We owe pig tails and platforms to one of our favorite spice girls, happy birthday baby spice!
