Which Iconic "It Girl" From The Last Four Decades Are You Most Like?

Wonderland Magazine / Heart Radio / Eighties Kids / WCBSFM Radio

Every decade had a handful of young girls who were beautiful, stylish and possessed a lot of sex appeal.

We bought posters of them, followed every aspect of their lives (especially who they were dating), and wore similar clothes and put our hair in the same style as them.

These girls were obsessed over so much that some were even hated for being so popular, similar to what's going on this decade with the Kardashian-Jenner family.

"It girls" do not choose to be given that name, it's the name pop culture gives these iconic female role models.

Here are the three biggest "it girls" from the early 2000s to the 1970s.

Which one did you look up to?


Paris Hilton

She's filthy rich, beautiful, and everyone wanted to be her friend. What was not to like?

Hilary Duff

This Disney child star was the sweetest girl ever! It also didn't hurt that she was super cute.

Britney Spears

The blonde all-American sweetheart had a lot of success in the early 2000s, before she chopped off all her hair. She had the hottest A-List celebrity boyfriends and came out with all the best jams of that decade.


Drew Barrymore

The '90s was Drew's time to shine. She wore flowers in her hair, posed for Playboy, flashed her boobs to David Letterman, and was friends with other cool girls like Courtney Love. She was really cool, and she inspired a lot of girls to bring out the rebel in them.

Jennifer Aniston

Most commonly known for her role as Rachel Green on the popular sitcom Friends, Jennifer had girls running around trying to replicate her style.

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer was like the girl-next-door that every guy admired, and so every girl wanted to feel just that way.



"The Queen of Pop" influenced girls through her hit records, attitude, clothing, and lifestyle. She talked about taboo subjects pertaining to feminism and sexuality that generated a lot of discussion and changed people's perceptions towards these issues.

Molly Ringwald

Molly starred in the hottest movies of the '80s, like The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, and Sixteen Candles. The best part about her was that she was so relatable.

Brooke Shields

Brooke was simply gorgeous, like seriously gorgeous. We couldn't keep our eyes off of her. Many people consider Cara Delevingne as the new-age version of her.


Farrah Fawcett

We all wanted to look and pose like this Charlie's Angels girl.

Meryl Streep

Meryl is still recognized as one of the greatest actresses of all time. She rose to fame in the '70s for playing the role of Joanna Kramer in Kramer Vs. Kramer, and she's been loved and looked up to ever since.

Diane Keaton

Diane is hilarious! She inspired all of us to let loose and feel comfortable in our own skin.
