What makes a cool mom?
There are a lot of ways to address such a gargantuan question, and we at Preview dare answer: A mother’s ability to move us is enough reason for her to be cool.
Below, 25 moms—cool Preview moms, may we say—who move us in ways that run the gamut of looking damn good, aging gracefully, remaining relevant, and living intrepidly, they each deserve our respect. Give each one a follow and double taps, Preview girls!
