Land Rover is one of the most popular utility vehicles celebrities and royalty alike choose, what with its combination of immense luxury and quality that each of its cars consistently delivers. These cars are truly unique and match up to the unconventional personality of its owner, which emphasizes why A-list and all-star celebrities have been associated with it for many decades. Most celebrities, especially the A-listers, have wads of cash with which they can do whatever they want. They're also particularly interested in motoring and love driving in the best quality rides, not necessarily because of speed but because of their elegance, uniqueness, style, and class, among other factors. Some have huge collections, others buy one brand, while others keep changing from one car to another all in a bid to look good and feel even better — the ideal reward for their hard earned cash.
Land Rover knows just how to make celebrities, especially the ladies, feel good about their cash and how they spend it, which is why the automaker invests in quality features and vehicles that befit a celebrity. Among the most popular Land Rover vehicles you'll find them driving around are the Range Rover Sport, the Evoque, and the HSE. Some even choose to have theirs customized further by aftermarket outfits, while others buy and use as is. Either way, the car will always look fantastic and will still maintain the elegance and classy demeanour it oozes as it drives past the paparazzi and ordinary folk. Here are just 20 of the prettiest female celebrities and the Land Rover cars they spin.
20 Kim Kardashian
Celebrity mom, socialite, businesswoman, actress, and model Kim Kardashian has been described by her critics and admirers alike as 'famous for being famous.'

Among these is a 2010 Range Rover HSE that sports 24-inch Agetro wheels. Kim had her car redesigned by Platinum Motorsport, who gave it new headlights and a black grille, wheels with centers made to match the car's black color, plus some chrome lips.

Stacy made a grand arrival at the Marchesa Fall 2012 show in a stunning silver-painted Range Rover. It was an event sponsored by British automaker, Land Rover. At the time, Stacy was dating George Clooney, but he was missing during Fashion Week, so she was seen hanging out with Jenna and pal Odette Annable as reports surfaced of a possible break up between the couple—and break up they did. Besides arriving at events in Land Rovers, Stacy has been spotted next to a sleek, black Lexus RX—girl's got great taste!
16 Jennifer Hawkins
Jennifer Hawkins is a Land Rover ambassador, so naturally, she'd be seen driving in or appearing next to the best of cars that the automotive brand has to offer.

15 Miley Cyrus
Love her or hate her, the "good girl gone bad" Miley Cyrus is one of the most celebrated music stars in the present day. Besides her music career, Miley is also a songwriter and actress who starred as Miley Stewart on the Disney Channel TV series Hanna Montana. The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker has been known for her controversial stage performances, and she drives a silver Range Rover, a Plug-In Hybrid vehicle, which delivers an exceptional refined experience and leading Range Rover capability on the road and off-road.
The vehicle runs from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 220 km/h.
The car's muscular and perfectly proportioned exterior will definitely draw attention, which most celebrities want. The interior is not only luxurious but also supremely comfortable and exceptionally functional, with perforated Windsor leather heated front seats that feature 16-way adjustment and memory.
14 Victoria Beckham
Former Spice Girl turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham is known for her posh lifestyle, probably why she was referred to as "Posh Spice" in the first place. The Out of Your Mind hitmaker and wife to former footballer David Beckham is a mother of four boys, and she's known for her eclectic fashion sense plus her funky clothing line. Her Range Rover is exquisite and posh like herself, featuring heated and cooled front seats that are comfy, 14-way electric front seats with memory and massage for both driver and passenger who can select their own program via the touchscreen. The car also has driver aids (optional) to allow the driver to concentrate on the road ahead by monitoring and helping with certain driving situations. Blind Spot monitoring warns the driver of the approaching vehicles from either side, while traffic recognition keeps the driver informed by giving particular traffic signs in the instrument cluster for a quick response. The car's Adaptive Cruise Control allows it to maintain a steady speed for long and also helps in maintaining a safe distance from the car ahead.
13 Melissa McCarthy
American actress, comedian, fashion designer, and producer Melissa McCarthy is known for her roles not just in the female version of Ghostbusters but also the Bridesmaids, and she's also a two-time Primetime Emmy Award winner, a Golden Globe nominee, and a Screen Actors Guild, GAFTA, and Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actress. With such huge awards to her name, success is almost a given. The mother of two and wife to Actor Ben Falcone owns a black Range Rover, which features a rear camera that gives an improved visibility when reversing. It also represents the vehicle's outer perimeter and predicts paths, which are superimposed on the rear image, hence making parking in a tight spot easy. On the front, the luxury car has LED headlights with standard signature daytime running lights.
12 Amber Portwood
MTV's Teen Mom Amber actress Amber Portwood showed off her top-of-the-class, white Range Rover, which is a pretty expensive ride. Her car is no different from other models in its range, what with the Shadow Atlas grille detailing with a satin body-colored side vent and accent graphics.
It also has 16-way heated front seats made of grained leather that offer driver and passenger memory, plus a 4-way manual headrest and back seats fitted with a manual recliner.
The meridian sound system has superb definition, crystal clear highs, and a full, deep bass that's produced by 13 carefully arranged speakers that also include a dual channel subwoofer controlled through Touch Pro Duo.

9 Ariana Grande
Singer and actress Ariana Grande, who's popular for hit tracks like Focus and No Tears Left to Cry, as well as her roles in the Nickelodeon teen sitcom Sam and Cat, seems to prefer white cars. Ariana drives a sleek, white Range Rover Sport, which she was seen fueling at a gas station in Valley Village, California. This is a top-of-the-range sports vehicle that weighs over 2.5 tonnes, and its 3.0-liter V6 diesel generates 180kW and not so inconsiderable 600 Nm of torque. It sprints from 0-100 km/h in 9.3 seconds, and its in-gear acceleration is especially strong with peak torque occurring at about 2,000 rpm, while cruising at the maximum legal speed on freeways and backroads is effortless. Ariana loves entertainment, which is why Land Rover updated the entertainment system, giving the SUV a 7-inch screen that supports Bluetooth music streaming, dual viewing (allowing the driver to focus on the navigation while the passenger watches a DVD) and Whitefire Wireless headsets for the back seats.
8 Alexa Chung
Alexa Chung is a British writer, host, model, and fashion designer who was first identified at the age of 16 in a comedy tent at the Reading Festival.

7 Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner came to the limelight following her role as a CIA officer Sydney Bristow in the ABC spy-action thriller Alias, which aired between 2001 and 2006. She went on to win a Golden Globe Award and a SAG Award, together with four Primetime Emmy Award nominations. She drives a Land Rover LR4, which is equipped with a wide range of passive and active safety and security features, including a six-airbag restraint system, command driving position, central locking, emergency brake assist, and the Land Rover Terrain Response system.

The vehicle has the Vision Assist Package, which includes HID headlamps, adaptive front lighting, automatic high beam assist, surround camera system, power-folding mirrors, trailer assist, and trailer hitch assist.

6 Queen Elizabeth
Aside from the two special occasions in Queen Elizabeth's life that include celebrating her 92nd birthday and the most recent royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Queen has been spotted on not more than one occasion spinning some of her high-end vehicles.
The queen, who's normally seen waving to the crowd from some sort of balcony or seated comfortably at the rear seat during official duties, was seen doing something different in Scotland. She was spotted taking Price William, Kate, and Carol Middleton to a picnic in a high-end Range Rover.
The vehicle seemed like a Range Rover Autobiography. Apart from the ordinary features that a Range Rover has, hers is fitted with advanced security features, semi-Aniline leather seats, which offer 24-way heated and cooled massage front seats with Executive Class rear seats all having memory function. The Queen will never have to worry about the weather conditions since the car has Automatic Four-Zone Climate Control, which can be optimized by each occupant, the Configurable Ambient Interior Lighting gives a choice of ten relaxing colors, and the sliding panoramic roof of the Range can also be opened.
5 Gisele Bundchen
If you've watched Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the movie Angelina Jolie acted alongside Brad Pitt, then you might just see a lot of similarities between the Smiths and the Bradys. Meet Gisele Bundchen, a Brazilian supermodel, businesswoman, mother, and wife to NFL player Tom Brady, a Patriots quarterback. Gisele and her husband have a huge mansion and an even bigger car collection that surpasses most celebrity couples' tastes and expenditure on luxury vehicles. Among them is this black Range Rover that she and Tom were spotted in in NYC (there are so many black colors in the collection, so it must be their favorite color). Gisele's net worth is estimated to run in the high hundreds of millions; in fact, Bornrich.com placed it at $290 million, but we figure it's probably more than that now, so she can afford to ride around in luxury SUVs and change them at will, too.
4 Georgina Chapman
Like many other celebrities, Georgina Chapman, a British designer and actress, also owns a Range Rover. This model has been frozen to -40 degrees Celsius, baked to 50 degrees Celsius, and has a lightweight, compact 9-speed Automatic Transmission that produces maximum fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions as well as greater control in low-grip situations. Other features which are exceptional include engine-intelligent features like the stop/start technology that automatically shuts down the engine at rest and starts it again as soon as the brakes pedals are released or the clutch pedal is fully pressed on a manual transmission. All these help in the reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It also has heated and cooled seats and a 14-way electronic front seat with memory and massage.
3 Reese Witherspoon
Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon is an American actress, producer, and entrepreneur who infamously shouted, "Do you know my name?" Her black Land Rover LR4 Discovery allows for a smooth and safe ride with its adjustable air suspension, and it can be raised to tackle difficult terrain or lowered for easier loading. The car's off-roading capabilities can be enhanced by technologies like Gradient Acceleration Control which aid in making steep descent feel more assured. The technological apps in the car enable one to use his or her optimized smartphone apps on its touchscreen as the smartphone charges, and one can enjoy a variety of other optimized apps from Land Rover partners with more apps being released over time.
2 Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie is a celebrated American actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian who's won various awards in her career, which include an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. She's also been named as Hollywood's highest-paid actress. She also starred in a video game where she's the heroine: Lara Croft in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
The actress was spotted spinning a black Range Rover Sport, which is fixed with a range of potent powertrains and delivers amazing on-road performance.
The 5.0-liter V8 Supercharged Petrol engine fitted in the vehicle offers an output of 525 hp, while the combination of an Ingenium petrol engine and an electric motor produces a remarkable performance for the vehicle. The car’s Touch Pro Duo plus its Interactive Driver Display and optional full-color heads-up display allows for simultaneous viewing and interaction with multiple features all at the same time.
1 Nicky Hilton
Nicky Hilton (born as Nicolai Olivia Rothschild) is a family member of the well-known Hilton hotel owners. She's also a businesswoman, socialite, model, and fashion designer who got married to James Rothschild, a grandson of Victor Rothschild. The daughter to former actress Kathy Hilton is a designer who launched her own clothing line in 2004. This line also includes handbags for Japanese Company Samantha Thavasa. The socialist was spotted adding fuel at a gas station to her highly valued SUV Range Rover Sport. The SVR version of this British machine comes with a marked price of about £101,145, making this car available not just to ordinary people but also to the rich. The car features a 5.0-liter V8 supercharged petrol engine that packs 575 hp and produces a powerful 700 Nm of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and its performance is underlined by the integrated air vent in the carbon-fiber bonnet. The large intakes in the bumper maximize airflow to take in components when using the car's full potential. It truly is a powerful car for a powerful lady.
