List Rules Only include female rappers. No pop stars or R&B singers

The best dressed women in hip-hop are the female rappers and artists who consistently look fantastic at red carpet events, in music videos, and when they are photographed by paparazzi, leading the way for female hip hop fashion. Like the best dressed male rappers, these ladies are burning up the Billboard hip-hop charts and frequent the best-dressed lists at music awards.

Though their musical styles can vary between rap, hip-hop, R&B, and even pop, a select few female artists have steadily been among the best dressed musicians nearly every time they are spotted. The beautiful Alicia Keys, the stunning Kelly Rowland, rapper Eve and Grammy Award-winning Mary J. Blige are just a few of the names that come to mind as some of the best dressed women in hip-hop in recent memory. If you're looking for how to dress like a female rapper, you need only take a look at the stylish women in hip hop on this list.

Depending on your definition of best dressed, another category of female artists can be considered among the best dressed for their willingness to take big risks. Singers like Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim always seem to find a way to turn heads for their often wacky clothing choice, though an argument that they belong on the worst-dressed lists could be made as well. Rihanna, Eve and M.I.A. might perhaps be the best dressed as they seem to have found the right balance between standing out from the crowd and remaining (mostly) classy as well. Female rapper fashion really runs the gamut these days.

Whether these female hip-hop artists are walking the red carpet at the BET Awards or the American Music Awards, or simply photographed leaving a club, all of these hip-hop and rap artists have become musical and fashion icons for one reason or another.
