Our gfs over at the insanely addictive pop-culture site Crushable, released their inaugural list of 25 women to watch under 25 today.
From musicians to actresses to Olympians, each rising star on the list is totally girl-crush-worthy, but a few such as Emma Watson, Adele, and Tavi Gevinson stood out to us as women we already look up to. Even if, um, they're a little younger than us. Take a look at some of our favorites from Crushable's list and be ready to be inspired! Or in my case, extremely anxious as you realize you've officially missed the life-deadline to make one of these lists. Personally, I'm closer to making one titled "100 Pretty Successful Women Under 100."
The Olympics Fab Five
This dynamic, talented team not only brought home the US its second-ever gold medal in gymnastics, but they were a joy to watch the entire time.
When we grow up, we want to be this wonderkid. With countless fashion shows, her own amazing online magazine, a few books, and the most charming Jimmy Fallon Show appearance ever under her belt, Tavi has accomplished more in her 16 years, than most people do in a lifetime.
She first stole our hearts when she chopped her hair into a pixie (aka the haircut heard ‘round the world), and she’s been a mainstay on every best-dressed list ever since. Also, if you haven’t seen Perks of Being a Wallflower yet, get yourself to a theater ASAP.
