It Girls, girls who have that, but what is "that"? Something that catches, that is original and that we love. It could be defined as a style, an essence, something that defines, like a perfume whose fragrance is unique, new, special and does not suggest indifference.
The term "It Girl" is not new. It was first used by English writer Rudyard Kipling in 1904 in his short story, "Mrs Bathurst". Years later, in 1927, British novelist and scriptwriter Elinor Glyn used it on her novel entitled "It" and inspired a movie starring Clara Bow as the gallant shopgirl portrayed in the story.
Actresses and artists immediately began occupying the position of It Girls. Women with a flirtatious personality and brilliant mind, showing an iconic and magnetic beauty and style. Over time, this profile came to meet a wider range of young women coming from film, fashion, television, high society or even from this new celebrity culture, with girls becoming "the big thing" just for beeing seen with famous people.
When we think of the current, true It Girls, names like Cara Delevingne, her sister Poppy, Miroslava Duma, Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung, Blake Lively, Kate Moss or Sienna Miller come to mind. Women from different fields of work who inspire and influence the fashion world and usually fill the pages of magazines and blogs. What about you? Do you feel like a It Girl?
