Taylor Swift didn’t invent the idea of women’s friendship, but she’s been a big inspiration for this year’s #SquadGoals movement. Replacing #Bromance this year was #SquadGoals, or the gathering of two or more famous women in one picture.
Some squads liked to keep things private, while others hashtagged their hangouts for all to see. Here are some of 2015’s most famous squads.
The New BFFs
It was rare to see either Jennifer Lawrence or Amy Schumer do an interview this year and not be asked about their new famous friendship. The two met and quickly became bffs, even writing a movie together that they plan to start filming in 2016. We imagine their nights together involve wine, pizza, laughs, and lots of jokes they’ll never be able to repeat on TV.
The Pretty Little Liars
The women of Pretty Little Liars are as close in real life as their characters are in Rosewood. Of course, with less killing. Often posting pictures together on their social media accounts, the actors and actresses of PLL get to work with their besties and sometimes even make out with them. Awkward? Maybe.
Most squads are tight, but few are tighter than ones that share genetic DNA. The Kardashian and Jenner sisters make up the most famous family in the world, with their reality shows, modeling careers, famous relationships and even more famous friends acting as daily headlines. Who better to hang with than the people who have been there from the start? It helps that they have already signed the same confidentiality agreements too.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
The four stars of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, including America Ferrera, Amber Tamblyn, Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel, have all gone on to successful careers on screen following their coming of age films. Giving us more warm fuzzies than you can squeeze into magic jeans is the friendship between the four women that has continued when the cameras stopped rolling. The foursome can often be spotted supporting one another on the red carpet and hanging out on their social media accounts. But what about Kostas?
The SNL Women
Any reason to reunite the SNL women of the early 2000s, including Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Rachael Dratch and Maya Rudolf, is cause for applause. With the four friends releasing their new film Sisters this Friday, they’ve been making the late night rounds sharing stories about hanging out on and off set, both for their new film and back in their SNL days. We could listen to these women talk forever.
The Girls Women
Lena Dunham not only taught Taylor Swift, the #SqaudMaster, about feminism, but she’s also got a pretty impressive squad herself. The writer, actress, director and founder of Lenny.com is just as good of friends with her Girls co-stars IRL.
The Big Bang Squad
When Kayley Cuoco announced her divorce from husband Ryan Sweeting earlier this week, Instagram followers of the Big Bang Theory actress knew she would be surrounded by friends. Cuoco rarely posts a social media pic where she isn’t flanked by her large group of girlfriends, including her sister Briana, her 8 Simple Rules co-star Amy Davidson, actress Lacey Chabert, and TV personality Ali Fedotowsky.
The British Invasion
Models Cara Delevigne and Suki Waterhouse may have been household names in their native UK for years, but the two model/actresses have just recently begun to take over North America. With Cara’s breakout gigs in The Fault In Our Stars and The Suicide Squad and Suki’s role in Insurgent, the two supermodels are quickly becoming the famous friends everyone wants on their red carpet.
The Bad Blood Squad
The squad that started it all is of course Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood posse. Before releasing the Bad Blood music video full of her closest friends, who also happen to be some of the world’s biggest models, actors, rappers and singers, Swift was already putting her female friendships front and center o her social media pages and in interviews. From Lorde to Selena, Gigi to Lily, Karlie to Jamie, Swift has set herself up for having killer birthday parties for the next decade.
