2015 Squad Goals

2015 is the year of the squad. We aren’t sure who started the squad train, but it is here and slaying the internet. Whether it’s #Squad, #SquadGoals or Fetty Wap’s take on the word, #Squaaa we just can’t help but to eat it up.

What is a squad? A squad is described on urban dictionary as, “crew, posse, gang: an informal group of individuals with a common identity and a sense of solidarity. Could there be a better word to describe our beloved friend group? Nothing gives it the same emphasis that squad does. So squad on, we shall.

Here are our favorite celeb squads of 2015:

The T Swifty Squad

Squad Members: Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Gigi Hadid, Ellie Goulding, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevigne, Zendaya, Hayley Williams, Lil Aldridge, Jessica Alba Hailee Steinfeld, Lorde, Cindy Crawford, Mariska Hargitay, Ellen Pompeo, the Haim sisters, Serayah McNeill, and Jamie King.

Taylor Swift, essentially, originated the term squad with her “Bad Blood” video. That video is #UltimateSquadGoals, there is no doubt about it. With all of those badass celeb babes in it who wouldn’t want to be the next member of the Swift squad? All of them are friends with Taylor in real life which is what makes the video even greater. Sign me up.

The Balmain Army

H&M
H&M

Squad Members: Oliver Rousting, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Jordan Dunn, Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, Erika Smalls

The Balmain x H&M collection was probably the biggest fashion collab of the year. Not to mention, the campaign and press that went into it was EVERYTHING. Literally every single ad and Instagram photo posted by a member of the Balmain squad was immaculate. A moment of silence for the Balmain x H&M clothing that we will never get.

The Flawless Squad

Squad Members: Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj

Another amazing music video of 2015 was “Feeling Myself”.  The two queens of hip hop had us drooling over their flawlessness with this one. Nicki posted this photo of the two of them from the video on her Instagram and said, “When u and bestie know yall poppin.” Poppin they are!

The Rap Squad

Squad Members: Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Big Sean, J Cloe, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Brown, Kendall & Kylie Jenner, Tyga, Travis Scott and Meek Mill

This epic squad photo was taken at the House of Blues during Big Seasons post-Grammy concert. I think this photo might even top Ellen’s Oscar selfie in terms of more celeb faces. Either way, in that room during that show is where I wish I could have been.

The Comedy Squad

Squad Members: Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence, Aziz Ansari, Chris Pratt

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer’s friendship blossomed the way you fall asleep: slowly and then all at once- from strangers to mutual girl crushes, to vacationing together and co-writing a movie script. Jen and Chris were shooting “Passengers” in Atlanta, and Amy and Aziz were passing through on their Oddball Comedy Festival. The foursome got together gave us a deep case of #SquadGoals. They even shared a short film they shot that weekend, called “hi guys.” Starring Aziz and Chris, directed by Jen and photographed by Amy.

The Couples Squad

Squad Members: Gabrielle Union & Dwayne Wade, La La and Carmelo Anthony, Adrianne Bosh & Chris Bosh

This squad hits us with #RelationshipGoals and #SquadGoals.  The basketball wives and their hubby’s all spent Thanksgiving together. Lala and Carmelo Anthony hosted the Squadsgiving. They even created a hashtag for the event, #TheAnthonyBoshWadeThanksgiving. How cute is that?!

The Dope Squad

NBC
NBC

Squad Members: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Amy Schumer, Aidy Bryant, Gale King, Robert Downy Sr., their nannies, the lady at the diner, their mammogram technician, the guy who returned the wallet, and their shared gynecologist.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reveal their squad in a skit parodying T.Swift’s “Bad Blood.” Instead of models and celebrities, their squad includes real people, like their nannies, their gynecologist and Amy Schumer. Watch out Taylor, they’ve got the best ladies and they’ve been told that they roll deep. Any squad with SNL legends Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is a squad we want to be a part of.

What squads will 2016 bring us? Or will there be a new term for the amazingness that is le squad?
