Beth Behrs is lucky and she knows it. It’s not every day that a little-known actress lands a role in a CBS sitcom created by Michael Patrick King, the same guy who made four other funny ladies famous in Sex and the City. In 2 Broke Girls, she plays Caroline Channing, a Chanel-obsessed heiress whose dad goes to jail for running a Ponzi scheme. She soon finds herself shopping at Goodwill and waiting tables with another broke girl (Kat Dennings) at a Brooklyn diner. In real life, the 26-year-old was “living paycheck to paycheck” as a nanny and struggling actress when she got the call for the part. “I bought a really expensive outfit and left all the tags on. When I hugged [Michael Patrick King] after our meeting I thought, Hopefully I won’t have to return it.” She didn’t—and these days, Behrs, who describes her personal style as a “mix and match” of high and low fashion, is learning to celebrate a little. “I’ve always wanted one pair of nice shoes. The other day I bought a pair of classic black suede Christian Louboutins. They were a big splurge, but at least I know I’ll have them forever.” —Gabrielle Porcaro
