Erika Berlin explains what happens when two mega successful women make an attempt at friendship.
Including a debate on whether two mega successful women can be BFFs; why we’re loving mustard (it’s the colour of the moment!); the shirt tucking trends you’ve got to try; a male model who’s actually female(!); how Pinterest is inspiring our denim style, and much more.
This year’s Golden Globes generated a huge buzz with funny women Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as co-hosts. Not only are they individually hilarious and have proven chemistry, as shown on Saturday Night Live, they’re also real-life best friends. Together, Tina and Amy transcend well-written material and comic timing. And that’s where the magic happens—their quick quips are like inside jokes they’re letting the rest of us in on.
But perhaps the greatest takeaway from their pairing is a reminder that powerful women can be friends, share the spotlight, and not be viewed as competitors. The existence of mega-watt BFFs spits in the face of the belittling idea that women must be pitted against one another. No-one asks you to pick between Rihanna and Katy Perry because they frequently discuss their BFF status and applaud each other throughout award shows. Ditto Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler, and Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé. Women who support each other publicly as well as privately always seem to come out ahead, because deep down, we all love to see a genuine bond more than a manufactured catfight.
