When we think of female friendships on tv and cinema there are a few groups of friends that we would love to be a part of.
Sex & The City
Talking about fictional female friendships, the girls from Sex & The City always come to mind. Who wouldn’t want to go shopping with Carrie or party with Samantha and then join them all for brunch and cosmopolitans? Through terrible dates, heartbreaks, divorces and even cancer, the four friends have always been there for each other, making us wish we had such an awesome group of friends to reply on.
The ultimate ‘it girl’ Serena and the fashionable queen bee Blair take over the Manhattan Upper East Side, in the midst of secrets, scandals and lots of love triangles. We would definitely want those two on our side in high school and also real life, as we are pretty sure there’s nothing they can’t overcome.
2 Broke Girls
Struggling to launch their cupcake business while working as waitresses and living in a terrible Williamsburg apartment, the rough around the edges Max and former rich girl Caroline are an unlikely duo, but somehow they manage to make it through hilarious disasters and comical situations and work hard to make their business into a success. We totally admire the friends’ resilience and ability to laugh even at the hardest situations and wish we had some female friends who’d be there no matter what.
The Bold Type
Our most recent girl crush is with the fabulous ladies of The Bold Type. Jane, Kat and Sutton who all work for Scarlet Magazine are three best friends who are exploring their sexuality, career choices and who they are as individuals. They remind us of ourselves and our own daily lives so we can totally imagine being one of the group.
One of our favourite things about this show is that age doesn’t matter when it comes to friendship. While the main premise is that Liza lies about her age to get a job in a big publishing house, claiming to be in her 20s instead or 40s, the friendship that develops between her and her coworker Kelsey is a true one that does not care for age gaps. The two of them team up to overcome professional and personal problems and when they work together they make each other better people. We would love to have an older wiser friend like Liza and a young fun friend like Kelsey any day of the week.
Being part of a team that works towards a common goal, in this case winning an a-cappella competition, is definitely a great way to bond with your female friends and we absolutely adore the way the Barden Bellas support and work with each other during the first and second movie to improve in their performance and also become better friends.
If you need a new girl squad outside your own to talk to then Shello is a great place to connect with other likeminded women and ask about anything you want to know.
