What do the beauties of today drive? Frankly, all things expensive, all things cheap, and everything in between. Hollywood divas—be they actresses, models or, singers—mostly come a long way from their often humble roots and they work hard to get to their particular acme of success. So why shouldn't they enjoy the fruits of their hard work, as well?
Enter dreamy mansions, enviable entourages, and of course, the most beautiful rides to cart them around. But do all these beauties drive beautiful cars? Many do drive the latest wheels and the most expensive ones, as well, and yet there are those Hollywood divas that are perfectly happy with anything on four wheels that gets them from point A to B with ease.
For many beautiful celebrities who drive beaters, it’s an environmental concern. They don’t believe in spending their hard-earned fortune on gas guzzlers, no matter how fast they might go. For the ones who do drive the fastest and the latest, well, they prefer all the creature comforts that come with being rich and famous. Between these 25 gorgeous celebrities, there’s quite a variety of rides you’d find. Some of these Hollywood divas love their fast rides customized to their taste, while others prefer ordinary cars that are better for the environment. Whatever be the case, and whichever wheels these gorgeous girls drive in, they still look beautiful and oh-so-chic…
The Gallardo is an A-class ride from the Lamborghini stable and was recently replaced with the Huracan. Of course, the ones that have it love to show it off and supermodel Isabeli Fontana is no different. Her bright yellow Gallardo can zoom up to 202 miles per hour thanks to a roaring V12 engine under the hood. This best-selling variant is stylish without being too flashy, but at the same time is clearly memorable, much like the lady herself.
As exquisite as Miranda Kerr is (cry me a river Orlando Bloom), her taste in cars is even better. She prefers to drive a Jaguar XJL in a silver grey shade. With a sunroof, this five-seater, off-beat sedan is perfect to enjoy every form of weather in. Of course, Kerr also customized the car to her liking by installing very high-end Nappa leather upholstery and piano black trims. And she sure knows how to make a statement when she gets out of her beautiful ride.
Mariah Carey may not be as popular as she was in the 90s, but she is still silly rich—enough to get boy toys and own a private yacht, as well as a plane, to travel in style. Also enough to have a cartload of cars, including an almost alien green Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster that she loves to be seen in. In fact, her ex-husband and the father of her children, Nick Cannon, often jokes how lucky he is to have a rich ex. Oh, and this car can go up to 205 miles per hour for days when Carey wants to go fast.
Kim Kardashian is the face of the Kardashian clan. Her rise to fame may have been a bit unsavory but it has changed the family fortunes, for sure, and Kim has come a long way from being Paris Hilton’s friendly little helper. Now married to music baron Kanye West and well on her way on having a fourth kid (via surrogacy), KimK is a power to be contended with. Her choice of wheels (among many) is a Ferrari F430. The car can go 0 to 62 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds and go as fast as 196 mph. Not too bad, right?
She used to be a sweet little thing before Miley Cyrus grew out of all that cuteness and turned into the twerking queen of the 2000s. Now sagely married to the lesser-known Helmsworth, she seems to be in a calmer frame of mind. Her rides seem as wild as ever, with one of them being the Maserati Quattroporte, that could do a 0 to 62 mph sprint in about 5 seconds and go up to speeds of 170 miles per hour. Knowing Miley, she probably finds it a little too sedate for her taste.
Gisele Bundchen is pretty much the world’s most in-demand model, Tom Brady notwithstanding. In fact, when everything in the world was dipping to new lows, the stocks of anything Gisele supported were on an all-time high. So here’s a lady that can outfox the Dow Jones. Among her many rides is a Rolls-Royce Ghost that has been an icon in its own right since its launch in 2009. According to Motor1, an electronically limited top speed of 155 miles per hour is still great guns in a car that is a bespoke luxury behemoth.
She rocked the scene with her band, the Pussycat Dolls, though clearly, it was her vocals that led the band to its success. Now a solo artist, Nicole Scherzinger is still making her fans sway to her brand of music, style, and fashion. Her choice of wheels is a Bentley Continental GT which shows that despite her dalliance with Lewis Hamilton, she favors luxury over crazy speed. Though at a top speed of 197 miles per hour, this is no sedate cruiser but a powerful and sleek car that looks as good as it drives.
Leave it to Victoria Beckham to reach the heights of customization. When Range Rover approached this svelte star to promote their SUV, the Evoque, they chanced upon an innovative idea. The very fashionable Ms. Beckham was asked to customize the car, inside and out (but not under the hood) as a limited-edition offering. Some 200 of these cars were made and sold at nearly double the price of the base model. That’s a lot of money whizzing by at 135 miles perh our, by far the slowest car of the lot.
Nicki Minaj’s love for pink, as in the color, didn’t just stop with her outfits and hair but went all the way to a wrap around her Lamborghini Aventador. Of course, she does have more sedate rides—a white Range Rover or even a 1965 El Camino—but her bubblegum pink0wrapped Aventador really stands out from the crowd. At a top speed of 217 miles per hour, this is one fast car, all the more surprising because of the color and Minaj driving it.
Born with the prettiest silver spoon, Gigi Hadid is the stuff of dreams. Of course, her dad being a real estate mogul helped, as did her model of a mom. Gigi was well on her way to stardom ever since she opened her pretty peepers. She was signed on as the face of the BMW M2 Coupe and so obviously, that became the car of her choice. It can go 0 to 62mph in 4.5 seconds and go as fast as 168 miles per hour—of course, that doesn’t ruffle a perfect hair on her perfect head.
According to Jalopnik, the Audi R8 is a rather special baby of Audi Sport, Audi’s in-house, high-performance division. With a top speed of close to 200 miles per hour and a drivetrain shared by the legendary Lamborghini Gallardo and Huracan, the R8 is both a technological marvel and a work of art—much like Gaga herself, who changes with every album she brings out, and in doing so reveals hidden aspects of her talent to the world. Like the Audi R8, Gaga is bold, fearless, and fast.
Gal Gadot, aka Wonder Woman, loves her cars fast, just the way she loves her newfound heroic role. (That's a movie that she filmed while she was pregnant, by the way.) Her favorite ride is the Jaguar F-Type and hers is in a bold, bright red. And as bold as it looks, it moves even bolder at 200 miles per hour, and this Israeli supermodel-turned-actress fits this supercar perfectly. A beautiful woman in a beautiful car, there cannot be a better head turner than this.
According to Teen Vogue, this is what Kendall Jenner said about cars, “some people get addicted to tattoos; I'm addicted to cars. If I love it, I love it. If I walk in and it really gets to me, I'm like ‘okay, I need that car.’” Clearly, this is what she felt about her red 1965 Ford Mustang convertible that can reach speeds of 120 miles per hour with ease, minus any tuning. Of course, as a member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, she owns more than just this ride, but it’s a favored one of hers.
While we all know of Halle Berry as a being an actor of talent and repute, those who have seen her emerge from the sea in a white bikini still remain speechless. As good as an actor she is, she also knows what she needs to enjoy her life. And one of her favored rides is an Aston Martin Vantage V8, and this is perhaps the fastest car of its era from the garages of Aston Martin. It can go an impressive 205 miles per hour without really breaking a sweat.
For a woman who has ruled the roost of Hollywood and managed to find a firm footing between roles that are both funny and glamorous, Cameron Diaz remains a woman of simple tastes. At least, where her cars are concerned, that is. In fact, she is quite the environmentalist, owning both a Toyota Prius and a Tesla. She got the Prius almost as soon as it was launched and it's one hybrid car that’s good on fuel and low on emissions. So here’s a celebrity that’s eco-conscious in a good way.
Many call her a natural in front of the camera—and why not, considering she was in her teens when she decided to become an actress. Considered rather real and down-to-earth, Jennifer Lawrence exhibits this humbleness in the car she drives. And it’s a very simple, very next-door, down-to-earth Volkswagen Eos. A celebrity cannot get simpler than this, and she, being JLaw, doesn’t care much about who thinks what. She likes her car, and finds it convenient, and so it stays.
Before Gisele Bundchen stormed the modeling world with her catwalk prance, Kate Moss ruled the roost. And she is still one of the most reputed models around. She can literally afford any car in the world but when on a joyride, she loves an MG Midget Mk III in pale blue. With a few friends and family and the top down, she loves driving this ancient little number with the wind ruffling her hair. Clearly, she is a "beater" kind of gal.
The fact that Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston are great friends is no state secret. Thus, the fact that Aniston also drives a Toyota Prius, like her friend, should come as no surprise. The time that Aniston was continuously spotted driving the Prius was the time flashy cars were the norm for Hollywood, so here’s a Hollywood diva who is the least diva-like when it comes to cars. All she cares about is the comfort, fuel economy, and the environment. Respect, Aniston.
Lilly Allen is quite the singer-songwriter. And when it comes to singers, looking at the rides of Nicki Minaj and even Lady Gaga, there’s no such thing as over the top. Driving brash and bold cars is the norm but Lilly Allen differs from the usual scene in more ways than one. Lilly’s car of choice is a great car but a terribly common one—the Ford Focus RS in a lime-green avatar. Once you tear your eyes away from the paint, remember this car has a 2.5-liter engine and can handle like a dream.
It seems that the sweet Hollywood divas seem to be doing the Toyota Prius a massive solid. Every conscientious diva out there seemingly drives a Toyota Prius and is happy about it. Add Natalie Portman to the ever-growing list of diva groupies when it comes to the Prius. Is it all for a good cause? Sue. The Prius us a hybrid car that offers superior performance and great fuel economy, plus one gets the eco-conscious audience member vote, as well.
Carmen Electra rose to fame with Baywatch and a slew of rather forgettable movies thereafter. She has had highs and lows in her career and coasted through the roads in her Dodge Challenger SRT. OF course, this is the much tamer model of yesteryears and cannot match up to the speeds of the 707-horsepower Hellcat. That said, not all Dodge Challengers are born equal and Electra’s version is a tamed-down version of the more powerful examples.
Britney Spears has had it rough. She has had the rug pulled out from under her feet when it came to romantic relationships and brief-and-troubled marriages. She has, on many occasions, famously lost control and ended up making the paparazzi have a field day. Now back to a sober city, her new albums and the Las Vegas shows seem to be doing alright. Her choice of wheels is an economical Mini Cooper that she can efficiently drive around in big and small cities.
And we are back to the ever-popular Toyota Prius. This time, its America Ferrera’s (aka Ugly Betty’s) choice. As we said, the Prius is a car for the environmentally conscious among us and most drivers buy it for its hybrid nature. It’s a great car that returns decent fuel economy and if a celebrity is using it, there has to be a good thought behind the car. Frankly, these divas are the winds of change and they drive the cars that are good for the world instead of being just good for them.
Katy Perry is also quite the environmentalist. She even owns a Smart Fortwo, and this is one car that not many are comfortable being seen in. She even gifted five assistants an electric Fisker Karma each. As a gift! And you can spot her driving around in her zero-emissions Tesla Model S, doing her bit for the environment in her own way. She can make a gaffe or two, but at least with Perry, her heart is in the right place.
