IT GIRL: "It Girl" is a term for a beautiful, stylish young woman who possesses sex appeal without flaunting her sexuality. The phrase is believed to have originated as slang in upper class British society around the turn of the 20th century. An early literary usage of the term "it" in this context may be traced to a 1904 short story by Rudyard Kipling: "It isn't beauty, so to speak, nor good talk necessarily. It's just 'It'." (Wikipedia, ik ik)
Let's start with the FACE of the
This heiress and selfmade millionaire was the Madonna, the leader, THE IT-girl of the 2000s. Despite her contemporaries she wasn't an actress or singer turned it-girl but was only known for being Paris Hilton (life goals)!
Paris' most iconic moments:
Her relationship with Nick Carter (member of the boygroup Backstreet Boys). She fucked your fave!
One Night in Paris
THE sextape par excellence!
This totally chic but so totally banned commercial
Living the tough life while staying fab
Paris Hilton was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating her probation by driving with a suspended license. More!
This trademarked phrase
Her singing and acting career
There were like one or two movies she made... one was a horror movie with chad michael murray... yeah... lol Her music was pretty catchy and good though.
The simple life
Oh and she was famous for the sensational and totally unscripted show 'the simple life'. Hilton and her gal Nicole Richie got dirty and poor for the love of reality tv.
THE RACHEL ZOE DAYS
Back in 2004/2005 (until 2007ish), it was totally chic to look like the walking dead. Eating Disorders, drug addiction and selfhurting were pretty much glamorised and so en vogue (sadly). No one was about that bass back in the day. It was a crazy time for gossip and pro-ana websites.
Rachel Zoe (Qui?)
She dressed all the big It-Girls: Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton, etc.
Rachel Zoe's best client!
MK was in rehab for an eating disorder and drug addiction.
Hilary Duff versus Lindsay Lohan
They started their fight over Aaron Carter xD
Paris Hilton versus Lindsay Lohan

Ashlee Simspon versus Lindsay Lohan
Ashlee Simpson dedicated her smash hit 'boyfriend' to her frenemy La Loca Lohan.
Nicole Richie versus Paris Hilton
There was a rumor that Nicole showed Paris' sextape in a club... oop. For more conspiracy, click here! Anyways this drama was captured in the 4th and final season (season 5 doesn't exist to me) of the 'simple life'. They later reconciled and remained friendly since then.
VH1 SHOWED US HOW RICH THESE GIRLS WERE
There was this totally cool tv show on VH1 who captured "the fabulous life of...".
DOGS AS ACCESSORY
There was a time in human history when it was totally okay taking your little dog to the red carpet and to public events.
HILARY DUFF'S VENEERS
Back in 2005 Duff got her first veneers, after reportedly chipping her teeth on a microphone during a performance.
Technically i wouldn't consider Britney Spears an It-Girl... What do you think? Anyways... her partying with Paris and Lindsay is legendary though.
no comment, seriously, no comment.
Well tbh there are barely any memorable, good movies made by any IT-Girl, except maybe 'Mean Girls' and 'A cinderella story', IMO!
Oh there was 'Material Girls'. A big ass flop and mess of a movie but it captured more or less the essence of this era... or not lol
