Despite any silliness, these have shaped a generation or two
Media surrounds us in every form. New content sprouts from all of the corners of the internet every day, meaning that we are at risk of forgetting the classics. This article aims to remind us all (including me) of the top ten girly classics that many of us grew up on.

You might watch some of these and cringe at how unrealistic elements of them are, or at the lack of technology and special effects of some of the older movies and series. This meant that the creators had to be suitably creative with training, stunt-doubles, props and many other aspects of film production.

1. Sex and The City

A fabulous show about four friends and their lives in New York City. Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha navigated New York City life in their own ways. Each has their own unique traits and brings something different to the table. Each has their own personality and interests, as well as trials and tribulations. Although the glamorous fashion world may not be relatable for all, the life situations might be for many.

2. Miss Congeniality

The bonkers tale of a FBI agent with masculine mannerisms and barely and manners at all who is placed into a unique assignment involving the Miss Universe pageant. Sandra Bullock stars as Gracie Hart, who snorts when she laughs and chews with her mouth open. She must quickly gain enough composure to compete as a Miss Universe contestant to stop a criminal attack.

3. Legally Blonde

A very pink and glamorous classic indeed, where Reese Witherspoon plays the adorable but entitled Elle Woods. Elle has the perfect life until her boyfriend Warner breaks up with her, ultimately causing her to apply to Harvard and attend law school. Elle has a difficult time because she is na´ve, obsessed with her appearance and all things pink.

4. Clueless

Were you lucky enough to study 'Emma v Clueless' in high school? You'll remember Alicia Silverstone playing hilarious teenager Cher Horowitz. The 90s film also starred the late Brittany Murphy and the beautiful Stacey Dash. It portrays a time when plastic surgery exploded, mobile phones flipped and had antennas, extravagant fashion and overall hilarity.

5. Shallow Hal

One of my favourite Jack Black movies, this hysterical romcom classic also featured him as Hal who picked ladies based on their appearance, but it never seemed to work out for him. After being hypnotised by Tony Robbins, Hal only saw people's inner beauty. He met Rosemary, who was played by Gwyneth Paltrow. Other notable characters include Cadence, a lovely child from the paediatric burns unit and Hal's equally shallow best friend, Mauricio.

Other classics definitely worth mentioning in this list include The Princess Diaries, Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, Flashdance, Dirty Dancing, Bridget Jones's Diary, Love Actually, Pretty Woman, 10 Things I Hate About You and My Best Friend's Wedding.
