Yu­lia Ty­moshenko, Ukraine

Savvy - - Independence Day Special -

Aban­doned by her fa­ther when she was a lit­tle girl, Yu­lia de­cided to use her mother’s sur­name, stat­ing that she was a rev­o­lu­tion­ary since the very be­gin­ning. She is the first woman Prime Min­is­ter of Ukraine, serv­ing in 2005 and again in 2010, and both times she nailed it in her unique style. She is the most prom­i­nent face of Ukrainian pol­i­tics and was ranked third in the Forbes list of most pow­er­ful women in 2005. An ac­tive mem­ber of the Or­ange Rev­o­lu­tion, she is also fa­mous for her braided hairdo, a fam­ily tra­di­tion which she con­verted into a style state­ment.
