The sold-out conference, sponsored by Maybelline and Express, was packed with inspiring speakers and informative panels.

In one particularly interesting conversation, moderator Amy Odell of Cosmo asked panelists Grace Helbig, a comedian and YouTube star, and Dick Costolo, Twitter's chief executive, who their favorite people to follow on social media are right now. "Who is getting it right?" she asked.

He said the creator, writer, and star of the HBO series "Girls" is his "favorite" because "she is who she is; she's her own woman. She doesn't care what anyone thinks about her authenticity, and that's awesome."

He continued: "If you're trying to be someone that you're not in your online presence … when things go wrong or you make mistakes — as they inevitably will, and you inevitably will — you'll become frozen on the stage of your own life not knowing what you're supposed to do next. But if you're authentic to yourself and you are who you are, you'll just roll with the punches and know how to deal with [things] because you're living your own life."
