Sofia Richie and Pia Mia

“I have a lot of guy friends, but I have a very limited amount of girlfriends. I look for something really particular in my girlfriends, which is loyalty, honesty, trust, and ‘ride or die.’ We have each other’s backs.”

I’m driving North on the 101 in a giant Flaunt magazine cargo van and my stomach is in knots. Diagnosing my jitters, I realize that I am about to go on a Tinder date on steroids – that is to say, I am going to meet in person someone who I see in photos nearly every day. Sofia Richie, 18, […]

Rosamund Pike’s best girlfriend is Charlotte. “When Charlotte turned up at my secondary school, it was like life changed,” Pike tells me. It’s not until recently, for this issue in fact, that they’ve ever talked about how important their friendship has been and continues to be.

Can you remember the first time you met your best girlfriend? Personally, this kind of close female friendship has been one of the most comforting, unwavering, and deep loves I’ve experienced. Perhaps the ultimate ‘real’ love story. I think you always know the moment it commences – that point where you lock eyes over an absolutely certified agreement of opinion, […]

“You have to take responsibility for your own performance,” Bella Heathcote answers decisively. “It’s not necessarily [the big] directors that grilled that into me – it’s more the ones that weren’t so great and I guess I just showed up pretty naïvely, thinking you show up and do what you’re told. Like they’re the great and wonderful [Wizard of] Oz […]
