Ladies, let us tell you something -- you're pretty amazing. You manage challenging careers, families, friends, and Prada only knows what else. And you do it with style and beauty. And we're not the only ones who are noticing -- Glamour magazine has an amazing spread of today's actresses and models paying homage to some of the most important (and lovely) women in American History. And we salute Glamour for doing so!

    Hayden Panettiere as Amelia Earhart
    Hayden might play a Hero on TV, but Amelia was a true hero to women everywhere when she became the first female aviator to make a solo trans-Atlantic flight.

    Paula Patton as Billie Holiday
    The actress channels the late singer, complete with gardenia in hair. Billie certainly struggled for her success, but showed us all that, sometimes, pain can be the foundation of beauty.
