The “It” List: 6 Vixens Stepping Into The Spotlight
What really defines an “It” girl? Looks? Style? Personality? All of the above for sure, but the true characteristic of an “It” girl is her undeniable hustle. Either on the court, in the booth or on the silver screen, she is relentless for her shot at the spotlight. It’s only right that we introduce (or re-introduce) you to the new slew of gorgeous, fashion-forward Vixens that we are slightly obsessed with.
Here’s who we’ll be keeping our eyes on this year. We recommend you do the same.
When one of the biggest names in rap signs you to their label, you’ve clearly done something right. Just three years ago, the New York native was performing on subway platforms, writing songs and singing at open-mic nights in various clubs. Now Bridget Kelly is Roc Nation’s sexy secret weapon. Her debut album is slated to drop later this year. (Check out our VV Chat here!)
Only standing at a whopping 5’6 and 120 lbs, Allyson is a triple-threat. Don’t let the petite frame fool you!
This Olympic gold-medalist is one of the world’s fastest runners, and at only 26, she’s already won more than a lifetime’s worth of achievements (she’s the current and three-time world in champion in the 200M, the only woman ever to achieve this). She recently teamed up with Nike to appear alongside other female athletes in an ad that will run in Elle, Seventeen, InStyle and Vogue.
Known for her role as Maya Ward on General Hospital, Annie made her television debut in the CBS series, How I Met Your Mother, in 2007. After a few appearances on other sitcoms, she joined the cast of General Hospital in 2010.
Now the brown beauty is serving up action-packed sexy on the cast of ABC’s television remake of Charlie’s Angels.
She will always be known as the ex-wife and mother of Lil Wayne’s daughter, but Mrs. Wright (she married former A&R exec Mickey “Memphitz” Wright) can now add New York Times Best-Selling Author to her résumé. She also just landed an endorsement deal as the face of Ampro Hairstyling Gel.
Not to mention, she is the owner of Garb--a clothing boutique located in her hometown of New Orleans--and gearing up to open a second location in Atlanta. She seems determined to make us remember her as more than Weezy’s first love. We’d say she’s well on her way.
Olympic gold-medalist, ranked 5th in the WNBA and co-creator of an image and styling company, the New York Liberty star is only six seasons into her professional career and has already been hailed as the next Lisa Leslie.
Perhaps the coolest thing about Cappie is that she’s quickly become the go-to face in fashion. Her company 4Seasons Style Management works with athletes and models to help create and embrace their personal style. A baller who knows her way around the hottest designers? What else could you ask for?
The Washington native is no stranger to television. We’ve seen her in everything from 24 and CSI: Miami to Raising the Bar and The Game.
This Fall, the actress will add a new area code to her acting reel joining the 4th season of 90210 as Holly, the “mean-girl president of the most prestigious sorority at CU."
