VANESSA & ANGELA SIMMONS
Co-founders, Pastry Footwear
Two words: savvy and stylish. These two “sole” sisters are the daughters of hip-hop legend Rev. Run, a member of the pioneering hip-hop group Run-DMC. In 2007, the sisters started Pastry Footwear within the Run Athletics empire ran by their business mogul uncle Russell Simmons. The shoe line has grown to now include children’s wear, junior apparel, dress shoes, handbags and accessories. Their sweet success is quantified with $50 million in annual sales.

- POLISH PICK: Boy Toy. This fun and flirty robin egg blue shade with an aquamarine base fits the personality and style of independent young women like the sisterpreneurs, Vanessa and Angela. Must haves to pull it of: an outspoken attitude and willingness to not take yourself too seriously all the time. Certain colors exude power, prestige and confidence, and as with these women, finding the shade that works best for you can go a long way by helping to highlight your personality.
