We all know a few sexy women, business women and maybe even celebrity women, but a select few have mastered all three of these qualities into this perfect trifecta as the 20 sexiest celebrity women in business. They've used their looks, along with their celebrity to create a business, or the other way around, using their business to make them a celebrity, and in turn become one of the best at being sexy, famous and successful.
Setting the bar for the rest who would follow in her heels, singer Madonna is perhaps the best when it comes to being sexy, famous and successful all in one. Becoming a sexy celebrity first and businesswoman second, Madonna paved the way for the likes of Britney Spears
, Beyonce Knowles and other singers
, as well as actresses like Jessica Alba
and Penelope Cruz and models like Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Others have made their names in this world as a businesswoman first, in turn becoming a sexy celebrity. Brenda Barnes broke barriers as the first female CEO of PepsiCo, making way for Disney
executive Anne Sweeney and Sony Pictures Co-Chairman Amy Pascal to follow.
Even a few world leaders joined the list such as politicians like Queen Rania of Jordan and First Lady Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned. Speaking of first ladies, you may not know Melinda Gates, who made the list for her beauty
, philanthropy and business sense, but I'll bet you know her husband, Microsoft
founder Bill Gates.
However these fine women got where they are today, each are deserving of a top spot among the sexiest celebrity businesswomen of all time for one reason or another.
