Do not underestimate a Girlboss while watching the first trailer

The first trailer for Netflix’s Girlboss is here to haggle and then lord its knowledge of obscure fashion over you. Britt Robertson stars as the brash and resourceful Sophia, a character based on Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal. Though the trailer insists that the show is “loosely based on real events,” TV Sophia and real-life Sophia follow similar paths, first by selling vintage clothing on eBay and then by starting their own online businesses. (Amoruso wrote the book #Girlboss; the series decided, wisely, to drop the hashtag.) The first extended look at the project from Pitch Perfect’s Kay Cannon makes its heroine out to be stylish, boisterous, a bit of a mess, and kind of rude. RuPaul also makes an appearance. Girlboss premieres April 21.
