The inspirations, qualities and beliefs of six extraordinary women

Forevermark has collaborated with six inspirational and extraordinary women to celebrate the Forevermark Tribute™ Collection – a collection that pays tribute to the unique qualities and characteristics of a woman.

Like Forevermark, each of these women have a unifying trait: a vested interest in the advancement of women and the celebration of their unique qualities.

Here Zendaya, Chrissy Teigen, Freida Pinto, Halima Aden, Chloe Grace Moretz and Ashley Graham open up about themselves, their qualities and beliefs, and tell us about the women who they are most inspired by.  


American actor and singer, Zendaya is most well known for her roles in Shake It Up, Spider-Man: Homecoming and The Greatest Showman. At the age of just 18 she also produced and starred in Disney Channel’s K.C. Undercover, making her one of the youngest Disney Channel producers ever.

Here Zendaya discusses the women in her life that have most inspired her.  Her mother, her sisters and her nieces, all incredible role models, always encouraging her to be the best that she could be. 

Diamonds are forever. They are one of the hardest stones, and I think women are some of the hardest, strongest people out there, and I think women are forever.

Chrissy Teigen

Model and NYT best-selling author Chrissy Teigen has learned to embrace her unique and outspoken qualities, as these are the attributes that shape her. This is something that she wants to instill and pass on to her own children, for them to embrace their own unique qualities and stand out in their own way. 

Three words I would use to describe myself…unique, outspoken, and sassy. Those three words have shaped how I’ve been able to have a career, and be opinionated, and be spontaneous in what I say. So many of these things are because I am unique, outspoken and sassy. They come because I’ve been that person my entire life.

Frieda Pinto

Actor and humanitarian, Freida Pinto is best known for her roles in Slumdog Millionaire and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Here she discusses the qualities that make up who she is. From her determination to go out and achieve whatever she puts her mind to, to her vulnerability and to how unpredictably goofy she can be; this clumsiness has shaped her and made her realise that it’s okay to not be perfect.

I feel like with everything going on in the world, it’s becoming harder and harder for women to admit in public that they’re vulnerable and it’s okay for them to feel their vulnerability. I pride myself in being able to be vulnerable, but have the strength to say it without making it a weakness.

Halima Aden

Model, Halima Aden has never allowed being the first to get in the way of her journey. She was the first Muslim, hijab wearing Somali student to win the homecoming queen crown at school and then in November 2016 she was the first woman to wear a hijab in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant. Now as a model, she uses her platform to spread the message of inclusivity and diversity. 

Forever means living a happy life, a long lasting life, a life of no regrets, and a life knowing you have changed other people’s lives.

Chloe Grace Moretz

Already with over 15 years of experience in acting at the young age of 21, American actor and model Chloe Grace Moretz is most well known for her role in the superhero film Kick-Ass. Describing herself as driven, familial and a dreamer, these three characteristics have shaped Moretz into the woman that she is today.

My family is the most important thing in my life. I grew up with a single mom and four brothers…My voice was just as important as my brothers, and when I stepped out into the world as a young adult, that allowed me to have a drive and a confidence in myself, and allowed me to become the woman I am today.

Ashley Graham

Harper’s Bazaar 2017 Model of the year, Ashley Graham inspires other women with her story and the way she's broken down barriers within the fashion industry. She herself is inspired by her mother, who despite being through a lot, is still one of the happiest and most joyful women she knows, always sharing her love.   

I’m ambitious, I’m fun, and I’m authentic. These characteristics have made me the woman I am today. They have brought out stories in my life that have shaped me; but in sharing these with so many women around me, it’s helped them come out of heartache and misery, and brought confidence in who they are.

A celebration of women

Zendaya, Chrissy Teigen, Freida Pinto, Halima Aden, Chloe Grace Moretz and Ashley Graham are just some of the extraordinary women that The Forevermark Tribute™ Collection celebrates. Each and every one of them inspires us with their strength, their beliefs and their passion for the advancement of women, a meaningful subject that will always be at the heart of Forevermark, now and forever.
