1. The Model Squad
Members: Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn
Whether they’re fiercely strutting down runways in designer threads or gleefully snapping selfies in off-duty chic, today’s crop of runway stars always look so flawless, it’s insane.
2. The Kardashian Klan
Members: Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian; Kendall and Kylie Jenner
Say what you will about the Kardashian-Jenners and their endless stream of selfies and controversies, but together, these girls get the kind of worldwide attention—not to mention social media following—regular folks like us can only dream about.
3. The Funny Femmes
Members: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph
Whether they’re co-starring in movies or hosting awards shows together, these smart, sassy, kick-ass comediennes always seem like great fun to be around. Don’t miss Tina and Amy as they play siblings who are polar opposites in the upcoming comedy Sisters; Maya’s in it, too!
4. The Local “It” Ladies
Members: Anne Curtis, Solenn Heussaff, Georgina Wilson, Isabelle Daza, Liz Uy
Local showbiz’s ultimate celeb barkada has been giving us major squad envy for years now, but it’s still always a treat to see them posting fun group shots and photos from their travels on IG.
5. The “Bitch I'm Madonna” Posse
Members: Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Diplo, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Miley Cyrus, Alexander Wang, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Kanye West
Okay, so we have no idea how tight these stars are with each other IRL, but just seeing them in a music video together—even though they didn’t all film on set with Madge—blows our minds.
6. The “Feeling Myself” Bombshells
Members: Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, and…that’s it.
This is the kind of girl gang that doesn’t need a third, or fourth, or fifth crew member. You don’t even have to watch the video for Nicki’s single featuring Queen Bey to know that together, these two superstars run the world. Watch the teaser to “Feeling Myself” here; the full video is available for streaming on Jay-Z’s Tidal music service.
7. Any Squad With Cara Delevingne In It
The Brit wild child is everywhere these days, conquering catwalks and fashion campaigns, starring in music videos and Hollywood films, and apparently, goofing off with everyone she meets. Some of the famous pals she’s been snapped making silly faces with are Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, Rita Ora, Sienna Miller, Michelle Rodriguez, Kate Moss, Paris Hilton, Harry Styles—the list goes on.
8. Aaaand The Mother Of All squads: Taylor Swift's Crew
Members: Karlie Kloss, Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, Lorde, Jaime King, Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, Cara Delevingne, Lily Aldridge, Hailee Steinfeld, Zendaya, Serayah, Hayley Williams, Lena Dunham, the HAIM sisters, and we’re pretty sure we missed a few people, please don’t kill us.
Tay-Tay is known for collecting famous girlfriends and documenting her friendships on Instagram for all the world to see. But her bond with these stars doesn’t stop at inviting them to hang at her house and bake; she even got them to act as weapon-wielding femme fatales in her “Bad Blood” music video and strut onstage at the different stops of her 1989 world tour. If that doesn’t spell squad queen, we don’t know what does.
