Best Female Role Model of 2009

She's a standout first lady and this year's winner for female role model of the year. That's right, Michelle Obama is your choice for best female role model of 2009, nabbing 28 percent of the vote. We'd have to agree here — and not just because her fashion choices make us swoon. While both Michelle and her husband have been inspiring change in the White House and the country, she takes both criticism and praise in stride and always seems a down-to-earth mother and wife, despite her celebrity.

It's a tough act to follow, but if anyone is up to the task, Ellen DeGeneres proves she's an entertainer with the smarts and the talent to rival Michelle for role model of the year — Ellen's your second place pick, earning 15 percent of the vote. Other favorites, Beyonce and Angelina Jolie, who tied with 14 percent of the vote, continue to set the bar high in the world of entertainment. It's an all-around impressive group of women taking the lead here as we head into 2010.
