More and more we are seeing power pals in the media (see Rihanna and Katy Perry, Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora). These friendships have been in the media for longer than it appears; and with one fashionista celebrity, usually follows another...in her Jeffrey Campbell platforms of course. We all looked up to the Spice Girls in the 90's, and dreamed to be like Cher and Dion in Clueless (especially with those pom-pom pens - i die!). So tonight's blog is going to be celebrating these power pals from the 90's until now.
Now, who can forget those platform shoes, the latex trousers, and the union jack which are pulled out of the costume drawer almost every Halloween. These girls had style, they all brought their own 'je ne sais quoi' to the group, and ultimately they seemed to be having the best fucking time! And, as cyndi lauper put it - girls just wanna have fun! AND WE DO! Spice girls will always be an inspiration for teenagers as they are growing up, especially in the fashion stakes!
Sex and the City
Now, who could ever forget the fabulous, fancy-free, foxes from Sex and the City. I don't know one teenage girl, woman, mother or wife who has not compared her and her girlfriends to girls from Sex and the City. (I always wanted to be a Carrie...but I think I ended up as Samantha - don't tell!) These women changed the stance of powerful women, as they varied through a range of professions, boyfriends, and daring outfit choices - looking back at some of the earliest episodes you can get a little shocked - but of the time it was risque, whereas now it can be more NAY! But the outfits, workplaces and boyfriends aside, these ladies were the best of friends, and would always be there for one another, through thick and thin, always! This is what we loved and adored (okay, and the hunky boyfriends!)
Cara Delevigne and Rita Ora
Up to date we have Cara Delevigne and Rita Ora who grace all of the headlines (and fill up our insta feeds) with pictures of HOW MUCH FUN THEY ARE HAVING (no, not jealous at all) - and heres to these, ghetto-chic ladies who love cross-eyed, tongue out pictures. So tongues out to you ladies.
So grab your bestie(s) by the hand and run off to the shops, or go wild in the clubs and just know that if one of you is awesome - two of you is awesome-er...yeah, that could be a word.
Peace, Love and Power Pals,
