Sophia Amoruso, 32, did not make her name as a leggy brunette with gorgeous eyes, but she easily could have. Instead, Amoruso came to fame thanks to one of the most savvy business minds in the world and an innate knack for sales.
At 22, Amoruso started her own online eBay store selling vintage clothing and other chic items, which she named “Nasty Gal Vintage.” The online store quickly blew up and eventually led to Amoruso founding her own women’s fashion retail line, Nasty Gal.
Forbes even named her one of the wealthiest self-made women in the world last year. Her net-worth was estimated at $280 million, though Nasty Gal’s recent struggles may sink that number.
Still, Amoruso is one of the most impressive and charismatic women in the country. She’s got a 2014 New York Times Best Seller, a popular podcast, a coffee-table book, and an upcoming Netflix comedy (Girlboss) based on her meteoric rise (produced by Charlize Theron, no less) to her name. With her sharp mind and striking features, we’re confident she’ll find her way back to the top soon.
In the meantime, enjoy the tasteful glamor shots.
