Why Celebrity Moms Love Strong Is The New Pretty

Tue, 17 Jul 2018 - Books we love

Since publishing in March 2017, Strong Is the New Pretty has quickly taken the world by storm by showcasing girls of all ages and backgrounds being, well, girls: playing soccer, hanging with friends, making goofy faces, and discussing how being a girl is about more than being pretty—it's about being fearless, proud, and strong. This message has really resonated with celebrity moms who love the book and have given it to their own daughters. From Kate Winslet to Nicole Kidman, check out what celeb moms have said about Strong Is the New Pretty!


Kate Winslet, on hoping the book translates to the next generation of girls:

 “[Strong is the New Pretty is] a book of images of young girls being athletic, being active, being strong, being proud talking about their hobbies, talking about what they aspire to be in their lives. And it just [makes] me think...I hope that we're able to give that over to the younger generation.”


Drew Barrymore, on how her daughter sleeps with Strong Is the New Pretty each night:

“I’m so obsessed with Strong Is the New Pretty. The book has a little bit of everything. It’s an amazing thing [that] my daughter and I have bonded over so hard, and she’s looking at these girls and looking at what the messaging is. It’s so well done. She wants to know the ages. I read the captions to her. She sleeps with it at night. And she is looking at girls who are talking about what they feel they can do in life. It’s so well curated too. It has this beautiful look and feel to it. It’s really the first thing in a while to kind of knock me off my feet.”


Nicole Kidman, on gifting Strong Is the New Pretty to her girls:

“A great book… I gave [it] to my daughters and watched as they pored over it.”


And don't forget Victoria Beckham's sweet post on Instagram for her daughter, Harper:
