Person One: "Kayla just adores Emma Watson. She has a poster of her in her room, has seen all of her films and even had her hair styled like Emma's at one point. I heard that she's considering studying at Brown University as well."
Person Two: "It sounds like Kayla has a massive girl crush."

The admiraton one girl has for another. It could be to do with hair, body, make-up, car, clothes, career, talents etc. Completely non-sexual. Girl crushes are generally very short-lived, as girls move on very quickly from trends.
Tracy: I totally have a girl crush on Ashley Olsen, she's hot as.
Monica: Ummmm, I thought you had a girl crush on Sienna Miller?
Tracy: Ah, no! Ashley dresses way better!

When you purely adore and admire another girl, but are not sexually attracted to her. In some cases, though, a girl can be attracted to just that one girl, and no other girls. They may even fall in love with them. Girl crushes can be on celebrities, or girls you know personally. I personally am IN LOVE with my girl crush.
My girl crush mesmerized me, and continues to mesmerize me every time I see her.

A feeling of deep admiration and adoration a girl has for another girl. The girl with the girl crush usually doesn't want to date the other girl, but wants to be exactly like them in every way and wants to be their best friend. The girl with the crush usually loses their identity in the process of trying to be like the crush-ee.
Hannah: I think I have a girl crush!
Susan: Really? On who?
Hannah: On that Sarah girl. She's super pretty, funny, and nice! I want to be just like her!

A "girlcrush" is like a "mancrush" except it is 300% more-likely that they'll at least make out a little bit if they ever meet and 1000% more-likely that they will have a pillow fight.
Deanna has a girlcrush on Ali Krieger, and would have an uncontrollable desire to pillow-fight if the two ever met.
