Girlboss. That says it all really.
Bringing to you the ultimate girl-power series, Netflix has just released the trailer for the up-and-coming must-see-series Girlboss. We’ve figured we might as well start calling it ‘Netflix and chic’ because we don’t think we’ve ever seen a trailer so ridiculously cool.
Inspired by New York Times best-selling book (also called “Girlboss”), Netflix has turned founder of clothing brand Nasty Gal, Sophia Amoruso’s entrepreneurial tale into 13 episodes documenting her rags-to-riches journey from eBay teen to fashion queen.
Building a $250 million dollar business, Nasty Gal began with Amoruso, aged 22, trawling around vintage shops in California, haggling items and selling them on her Ebay store ‘Nasty Gal Vintage.’ Growing from $200k to $23million in the space of three years, Amoruso was named as one of the richest self-made women in the world by Forbes in 2016.
The two-minute trailer which was released April 3rd features American born actress Britt Robertson in her first ever lead-role portraying Sophia as a kooky-teen with the type of fringe dreams are made of.
In the trailer, Amoruso manages to haggle a metallic Western-print jacket down from $12 offering $9 along with some “free business advice.”
“This is an original 1970’s East-West katzkin motorcycle jacket in perfect condition. Know what your shit’s worth, because you just got played.”
Now I don’t know about you, but that might possibly be the coolest quote I’ve ever heard in my life. Sassy and bad-assy, we just know this fashion flick is going to be the new Netflix-fave.
Mia Sheperd, 21, a student from Manchester said: “I’ve just finished reading her book… I’m really excited to see her story put into film. It’ll be good to see a strong female character like Sophia being shown – she’s sassy, funny and inspirational.”
Sophie Sprittles, 22, from Colchester, a third year fashion and textiles student who quit her part-time retail job to sell clothes on her incredibly successful Depop page thegirlboss told me how much she looks up to Amoruso. “I found it amazing how she built the Nasty Gal empire from selling on Ebay in her bedroom.” With over 13k depop followers, Sprittles is on her way to becoming Essex’s girl boss herself. “I see Sophia as a huge inspiration to women with a small business idea. I am so excited for the Netflix series!”
The Independent recently wrote a review on the trailer, picking up on the fact that the “business woman” character is often portrayed as someone who’s pretty much a narcissistic bitch. They said “it’s great to see a show that attempts to place the same lens on the world of a business woman.” YAS!
