Girlboss is the summer DIY guide for millenial success Image: Twitter
"Your generation is so f***ed up." How many times have you or the people around your cubicle seat heard that? 22-year-old Sophia Amoruso heard it too, and then got slapped by an old lady on a park bench, who, let's face it, has no idea what the millenials have to really go through. Based on Nasty Gal founder Amoruso's autobiography of the same name, Netflix's upcoming series Girlboss is what you need to watch (by the looks of the trailer), if you really want to know an entire generation's worth.
Britt Robertson stars as the young Amoruso, who finds a way to earn some very fast cash, selling some very chic stuff online. And then her plan backfires — obviously. But that only helps her guts and she comes up with her very own fashion apparel site (which will of course evolve into the bestselling fashion brand, Nasty Gal). Nothing stops Sophia — bankruptcy, homelessness, bad relationships, parental c**p. She paves her ideas into a major success and owns her failures. Cuz, that's what millenials do — you might not notice, but they do pick up after themselves.
Girlboss might be more than your perfect bing-watching content. How a regular 22-year-old carves out her own multi-million dollar business, without daddy's cash or waiting tables, is the Netflix-approved self-help guide you might not know you require. Plus, Charlize Theron is one of its executive producers. Yeah.
Girlboss premieres on April 21 on Netflix.
