For a very long time, most Hollywood gossip revolved around romantic entanglements: hooking up, breaking up and making up dominated the headlines. These days, the Queen Bees like Gwyneth Paltrow and Taylor Swift reside over star-studded girls nights on Instagram, leading to major #squadenvy. Who’s friends, who’s not and who’s ripe for BFF-poaching is much more interesting than another C-list split.
The Power of Pants
Those jeans must have truly been magical because a decade after the movie The Sisterhood Traveling Pants, co-stars Blake Lively, America Ferrera, Alexis Biedel and Amber Tamblyn are still tight as a pair of jeggings. They’ve seen one another through marriage, kids, career highs (and probably a few lows) and often support one another’s projects on the red carpet and social media. While America, Alex and Amber technically aren’t godmothers to Blake’s baby James (despite Twitter rumours), we’re guessing she’s going to have a lot of advice from her cool aunts in the future.
As pouty Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham was of course a big part of the ‘90s Girl Power pop music uprising. Fast-forward a few years and she’s still as posh (and pouty) as ever, even if she’s ditched the platforms and bandage dresses. Today Vic is super tight with Eva Longoria and Kate Beckinsdale, and enjoys the occasional hang with Baby, Ginger and Sporty. Viva forever.

Like her mom Goldie, Kate Hudson is known to throw one hell of a party (her Halloween bashes are legendary!). She’s tight with Julianne Hough, Liv Tyler, Nicole Richie and producer Heather Parry, and had Cara Delevingne over for a Thanksgiving dance party.

One Jen to Rule Them All
Jewellery designer Jen Meyer has friends and family in all the right places–her father is a high-powered studio exec and she’s married to Tobey Maguire. Her eponymous jewelry line is a favourite of LA’s buzziest models, actresses, socialites and designers; obviously, she counts many of them as friends. Her BFF Rolodex includes Derek Blasberg, Shoshanna Gruss, Karlie Kloss, Erin and Sara Foster, Rachel Zoe, Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston.
