The Makings of an ‘It Girl’.

What gives someone the “IT” factor? Rapid advancements in social media (and our global networking abilities in general), have lead us to believe that it is beauty, sex appeal and/or riches that make a women the whisper on everyone’s lips. A lot of people (YES, men too!) strive to attain this factor by trying to be the loudest in the room, or in the most predominantly placed booth of an exclusive nightclub or wearing clothes that cost as much as a used luxury car. But is that what the IT factor should be? Shouldn’t it be the person who no body really knows much about, that makes you wonder what they are really like under their cool demeanor, someone that may not have a lot of money but could wear a paper bag and still break your man’s neck? The It factor to me does not consist of money, # of twitter followers or blog hits; but of unmatchable style and intellect. They should charm your pants off with a quick wit and humble confidence, perhaps they may even shock you with their take on the world but present it in a way you simply cannot deny. They don’t know they are it, they don’t care to be it, they don’t strive to be it. They just are. Effortless.

Here are some famous “It” girls that I think worthy of their titles (IMHO, of course):

Clara Bow (The first “IT” girl)

Zoe Kravitz

Agyness Deyn

Audrey Hepburn

Karen Kain (My childhood idol)

Jeanne Becker (My other childhood idol)

“With ‘IT’ you win all men if you are a woman—all women if you are a man. “IT” can be a quality of the mind as well as a physical attraction. Self-confidence and indifference whether you are pleasing or not—and something in you that gives the impression that you are not at all cold. That’s ‘IT'”. (Source: Wikipedia)
