Black Friday: 9 TV and movie characters you should shop with


Time to stop stuffing your face and start stuffing your shopping bags.

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year and this season we're celebrating the consumer holiday with a list of pop culture characters known for their iconic fashion sense or for shrewdly using boutique browsing as their cardio.

Imagine if you could hit the sales with the likes of Carrie Bradshaw and Olivia Pope.

Ready? Set. Shop!

1. Carrie Bradshaw "Sex and the City"

Carrie Bradshaw shopping
Who wouldn't want to shop with a journalist who figured out how to afford all of her luxury couture items on a newspaper writer's salary? Carrie chose men with major red flags season after season, but when it came to picking designer threads and amazing Manolos, she nailed it!

2. Olivia Pope "Scandal"

The ultimate Washington D.C. fixer would be a perfect shopping buddy if you're prepping for the next Polar Vortex. Olivia knows how to choose a white trench coat that steals the show with the fierceness of an unrelenting snowstorm. Of course, the chic crisis manager's fashion sense isn't limited to outerwear. The style maven regularly brightens up the Capitol with her patterned picks, so she's sure to bring a feminine yet powerful fix to your wardrobe.

3. All of the "Mean Girls"

You'll never ever hear "You can't sit with us," after bargain hunting with these no-nonsense ladies. They will shame you before you even think about wearing sweatpants on Monday, remind you that your frocks aren't fetch and they're never going to happen on Black Friday -– or any day. Yet, they will be kind enough to help you find the best pink ensembles to wear on Wednesdays.

4. Cinna "Hunger Games"

Katniss and Cinna, Hunger Games, Catching Fire
Katniss Everdeen's stylist made dresses that were literally on fire, black jumpsuits that glowed in defiance, and wedding gowns that transformed into ultra-chic symbols of resistance when his star tribute was on the stage. When shopping with Cinna's fighting fashion sense, the odds of looking fabulous are ever in your favor.

5. Gloria Marie Delgado-Pritchett "Modern Family"

USA Network Upfront 2013 Talent Portraits
A pair of unflattering mom jeans on this haute housewife? Never. Proving being a mother and wife doesn't mean you have to be frumpy and matronly, the curvaceous brunette beauty is all about showing off the girls and the gams. Surely, you'd want to hunt for revealing blouses and form-fitting skirts with this hot mama.

6. Cher Horowitz "Clueless "

Alicia Silverstone In 'Clueless'
"Sometimes you have to show a little skin" is mid-90s advice from not-so-clueless Cher Horowitz that still holds true today. The fashion-forward socialite is an ace when it comes to traversing Rodeo Drive, so if a Los Angeles look is what you're after, she's your girl.

7. Daisy Buchanan "The Great Gatsby"

Film Review The Great Gatsby
You too can look like you have a voice "full of money" even if your bank account is full of zeroes when you take cues from Daisy Buchanan. Who cares if you can't afford to look like a million bucks in attire by Prada or custom jewelry by Tiffany & Co. With a click of her heels, Buchanan could ensure you look like an "absolute little dream."

8. Holly Golightly "Breakfast at Tiffanys"

Breakfast Dish
Holly Golightly was "just crazy about Tiffany's" and --outfits of the day-- that entailed anything from a black Givenchy dress to a statement necklace that said everything. Since she's technically funemployed, she has more than enough hours in her carefree day to take you shopping for her favorite classics. More perks? She will likely have a fella pick up the tab.

9. Phyllis Nefler "Troop Beverly Hills"

Die Wilde Von Everly Hills   Troop Beverly Hills   Phyllis Nefler (Shelley Long, l) *** Local Caption *** 1988  --
Ready to earn a patch for jewelry appraising, handbag haggling, and shoe buying? Well, Phyllis -- a self-proclaimed shopaholic who has a "black belt in shopping" -- is your best bet for Black Friday. She may even include you in a chant from her daughter's Wilderness Girl troop: "We're the girls from Beverly Hills, shopping is our greatest skill!"

Honorable Mention: Lisa Vanderpump

Lisaa Vanderpump
The British restaurateur and TV personality deserves a nod as a Black Friday shopping sidekick simply because her spectacular closet could double as a store in Beverly Hills, darling. Chi chi chi...
