In high school, a girl’s best friends can sometimes be her worst enemies. Inspired by Machiavellian teen movies like Mean Girls and Heathers, next-top-models Kelsey Merritt, Linn Oeymo, and Lexi Mendiola play campus queens with further command over the mall bathroom.

Being perfect isn’t easy, of course. After the girls tire from some after-school “self-improvement” a.k.a. shopping, they take their royal place in front of the mirror: the rightful arena for primping and power plays.

Like a shy new girl invited, B/BLOG witnesses as the frenemies retouch (mischievous shades of plum), gossip (the skank report), and strut around in their sassy back-to-school outfits (floral prints, bold knits, and color-blocked shoes). At least when these BFFs are done playing dirty, they’re in the right place to wash their hands clean.
