40 TV and Movie Characters Who Were The Quintessential IT Girls
Buffy Summers (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Buffy Summers is a lot of things to a lot of people. She’s a daughter, a friend, a love interest, a savior, and, for those in her high school, she’s a smart, pretty girl. Buffy is not defined by her status as an IT girl, but she would like to be. Instead, she’s tasked with hunting vampires and saving the world from complete destruction.
Part of the fun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was the way it played with Buffy’s conflicting roles as a chosen one and a popular girl. She liked to do her makeup and play with her hair, but that didn’t make her any worse at saving the day.
