Women We Love This Week

Five women who have bossed the past seven days.

Featuring: the humbling of Justin Bieber, Christmas advert wars and the Union Jack looking better than it has for a long time.

 

 
Given the proliferation of international sex symbols walking around in their underwear, it's never easy to steal the limelight at a Victoria's Secret Angels show. But American country / pop star Taylor Swift pulled off just that when she performed at the lingerie giant's 2013 showcase in New York. How? By playing to our inner-patriot with this Brit-inspired mini dress. Not since the Spice Girls played the 1997 Brit Awards has our nation's flag looked so great.

 
Now as you'd probably expect, Esquire doesn't usually get excited about the cute TV ad armsrace that grips Britain at this time of year. Even that John Lewis one a from a few years ago when the little boy had Gwyneth Paltrow's head in a box at the end left us feeling decidely un-fuzzy and warm inside. But this year we're making an exception, and it's for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Alice In Wonderland / Wizard of Oz-inspired M&S jaunt, in which she looks mesmorising in everything from her underwear to a pair of pajamas. David Gandy makes a sharp mad hatter, too.

This week, we fell for Jennifer Lawrence all over again (no pun intended) after she picked a fight with none other than Joan Rivers, a comedian with an ascerbic streak that would have most grown men cowering under a table. Having a pop at River's Fashion Police TV show inbetween promoting her latest Hunger Games film, the 23-year-old added 'brave' to a ridiculous list of attributes that already includes 'beautiful', 'talented', 'funny' and 'able to hold her own with Jack Nicholson'.

Most pop comebacks are exercises in self-flagellating tragedy. Not if you're Lily Allen. The music video that sparked a hundred hand-wringing blogs (and over 6 million YouTube views) this week was the long-awaited return of Britain's most interesting pop star, with a typically catchy ska-pop broadside at sexism in the music industry (including a jaw-dropping riposte to Robin Thicke). Welcome back, Lily.

 

A good week for former Esquire-cover star Katy Perry. Not only has she recently surpassed Justin Bieber as the most followed person on Twitter – thus restoring a little of our faith in mankind – but she announced that her May 2014 world tour will kick off in the UK, name-checking Sheffield and Birmingham with a level of enthusiasm not seen since the days of the industrial revolution.
