Girl crushing…

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 17 - 2013

Girl Crush.

Definition: an overwhelming sense of awe felt by a girl for another girl.

In my life, I’ve probably had more girl crushes than I have boy crushes.  Is that unusual?  I’m not so sure it is.  There’s nothing us women enjoy more than a gossip about the merits and failings of another woman.  It would be nice to think that we’re more inclined to discuss each other’s merits… but well, you know… *looks guilty*.

In some small way of redressing the bitch-balance, I’d like to come clean and reveal some of my girl crushes.  These women, love them… all of them:

exceptionally-beautiful-women
Anna Karina  |  Bjork  |  Dolly Parton  |  Audrey Tautou  |  Dorothy Dandridge  |  Shirley Maclaine  |  Charlotte Rampling
Helena Bonham Carter  |  Christina Ricci  |  Shingai Shoniwa  |  Rachel Weisz  |  Helena Christensen  |  Jean Seberg  |  Debbie Harry

To be fair, these aren’t quite girl crushes in the typical sense… I don’t necessarily admire these women for the way they handle themselves, the images they portray, what they’ve achieved or what value they have brought to my life.

I just think they’re all really, really hot.

Do you girl crush?  Who are your favourites?

  1. Oh me too! I can’t be bothered crushing on men, they’re all so boyish, and I’ve got my husband so that’ll do fine, he’s lovely, I’m happy with that. But girls! So many girls I totally girl crush on, usually for stuff like I like how clothes look on them or their hair or their collarbones or something. Helena Bonham Carter made both of our lists! That’s because she’s bonkers.

    Rachel Weisz <3

  3. Jennn says:

    Helena Bonham Carter is also one of the sweetest women I’ve ever met. I have a total crush on her

  4. I’m with Powdered Almond…I don’t even bother with guy crushes. Christina Hendricks is my current massive girl crush. The curves, the hair & that skin!

  5. Bex Miller (@luxiehoney) says:

    Totally with you on this, I could girl crush over Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Lawrence, Rachel Weisz and Natalie Portman alll day. And basically any actress from the 20s-60s. Love!

  6. Yasmin says:

    i got a girl crush on Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock.

  7. Rachel says:

    Girl crushes are so much more fun than guy crushes. My list at the moment: Florence Welch, Sara Bareilles, Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Morrison. I think it’s important to have girl crushes– they help us work out how to live, inspire our style (I’m currently doing Florence-esque hairstyles every few days!), and stand out as good human beings.

  8. You’ve picked some scorchers there! I don’t tend to get girl crushes very much because I am pathetically boy crazy 😛 But some of my faves are Beth Ditto, Kate Bush, Cyndi Lauper, Marilyn Monroe, Diana Dors, Jane Russell, Mae West, Clara Bow and basically any Hollywood starlet from the 20s-50s 😛

  9. Leah says:

    My all time girl crush is Monica Bellucci, but I have many – Pink, Adele, Beth Ditto, Dawn French, Catherine Zeta Jones, Queen Latifah, Kat Von D.

  10. Carrie A. says:

    I’m with you on the girl crush front! My main ones are Adele, Helena Bonham Carter, Jennifer Lawrence, Audrey Hepburn, and Emma Stone. I love their style and their attitude, not to mention their awe-inspiring talent!

    My first serious girl crush was on Helen Baxendale but nowadays Charlize Theron really does it for me. She is just perfect in every way. :-)
