Here’s the Real Reason Jennifer Aniston Hangs On to Her Friends Clothing

Jennifer Aniston may have let go of the"Rachel" haircut years ago, but she's still holding on to a few key pieces from her Friends wardrobe—for good reason.

Here's the Real Reason Jennifer Aniston Hangs On to Her Friends Clothing

In an interview with Vogue, the star revealed that she opted to keep some of Rachel Green's very '90s style pieces (high-waist pants and and spaghetti strap tops, anyone?): "I have certain things I have yet to throw away from my days on Friends," she admitted when prompted with the revelation that the defining decade's style is "back."

"My red squared-toe loafers might actually be making a comeback—that’s awesome," she said. "See, it's coming back—I knew it. I also have those nice high-waisted jeans. I'm so glad I didn't throw any of those out. I loved the '90s."

(We're with her on loving Rachel's '90s style too, even beyond the nostalgia for the show.)

Aniston also reflected on the major beauty moments of her past, concluding that the '80s may not have been the most flattering decade…for anyone: "Sometimes what’s in fashion isn’t always your best friend," she said. "There was a phase in the ’80s where I don’t think anyone was sporting good hair and makeup. The amount of makeup I piled onto my skin and the wonderful hair colors and cuts that my hair went through—I don’t look back fondly on some of those choices. But I do laugh at them!"

Fair. If Jennifer knew then what she does now, she may have worn a few more beachy-chic ponytails.

Designers Are Bringing This Spice Girls Inspired ’90s Shoe Trend Back

Ah, the Spice Girls: They may not have released an album in the last 15-plus years, but we still have our fingers crossed for a full-blown reunion tour, no matter how many times the girl power group says it may never happen with the five-some intact. While their music will forever be on our blast-in-the-shower-on-a-bad-day playlist, it was their style that was truly so iconic. The mini dresses, big hair, and—yes—platform shoes were everything. While some of us may have been a Posh, sporting LBDs and blunt bobs, and others related more to Sporty, in track pants and crop tops, we all coveted those hard-to-walk-in, high-rise shoes in some form or another.

Designers from Marc Jacobs to Vera Wang created everything from thigh-high boots to sneakers in varying degrees of chunky heights. We're not talking about a little extra lift: We're talking about some serious Spice Girls power.

Here’s What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists

Today's red carpets are an industry unto themselves, with big-name celebrity stylists working to make sure clients look stunning in front of the photographers' bulbs (and occasionally soothing them if reporters aren't kind). It's rare to come across celebs who don't employ one, so much so that it was big news back in 2009 when it was revealed that Blake Lively pulled her own dresses for events.

Shocking as the news about Mrs. Reynolds was, her status was totally the norm prior to the late '90s. Before the introduction of professional stylists—an honor that Phillip Bloch claims—stars appeared on major red carpets in outfits of their own picking that showed off their personal style better than anything since. Fashion insiders point to the introduction of People magazine in 1974 and Barbra Streisand's bell-bottomed, see-through Arnold Scaasi pantsuit as turning points for when celebrities started to think differently about what they wore (Streisand wore the quirky look when she won an Oscar for Funny Girl in 1969, giving it even more exposure). Suddenly the general public was more interested in what actors were wearing in real life, a fascination that had started bubbling in 1964, as evidenced by the broadcast of that year's Oscar ceremony. "Much of the excitement of every Academy Award presentation is generated by the prominent arriving guests," the broadcaster announced before detailing the dazzling names getting out of their cars. It was no "Who are you wearing?", but definitely the start of a shift.

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists

"Actors [were] more in control of their wardrobes. Ironically, the result was more diversity because what celebrities wore more accurately reflected their personalities and senses of style than we see today," fashion writer and editor Bridget Foley told Vanity Fair. "Someone with a casual sense of style might dress casually; someone who wanted to have fun and/or become a topic of sartorial conversation would dress for the intent."

So, what were the stars picking pre-stylists?

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
It was an old favorite for Audrey Hepburn, who asked Hubert de Givenchy to alter the dress she wore in Roman Holiday for her to wear to the 1953 Oscars. Consider it a supreme lesson in learning what works for you and sticking with it (she won the Best Actress statuette, natch).

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
It was big news when Bryce Dallas Howard copped to buying her own red-carpet dresses, but she wasn't the first to go that route by any means. Anjelica Huston bought her own Halston gown for the 1975 ceremony. "Even though I worked as a Halston model, I had gotten this dress at Neiman Marcus. The awards were on Friday, and [I bought it] on Wednesday."

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
The languid feel of Mia Farrow's disco-ish gown was totally in keeping with the general style of the decade (she wore it to the 1979 Oscars). The same silhouette wouldn't look out-of-place on a modern carpet, but one accessory would be quickly nixed by a celeb stylist: that wrap, good for a tiny bit of warmth but not so much for showing off the dress.

Beyond just skipping a stylist, Demi Moore was supposedly involved in the creation of her 1989 gold-lined curtain and corset ensemble (complete with lacy biker shorts).

Likewise, Kim Basinger turned fashion designer for the bridal-like dress and half jacket she wore in 1990.

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
Do a web search with Whoopi Goldberg's name and the 1993 Oscars and you'll quickly see that this creation landed her on worst-dressed lists universally. Still, it's the sort of personality-packed choice that we don't see much of any more. Goldberg purchased it herself in Beverly Hills and later gave it to Planet Hollywood for display. "It's a dress she's proud of. She wanted the public to be able to see it and enjoy it close up," the restaurant's memorabilia chief told People.

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
High-low dressing officially became a thing when Sharon Stone mixed in a spot of Gap for her 1996 Oscars look. The actress was reportedly bugged by leaked style info (the New York Times published a story the day before the awards, detailing the "gold, navy, and red Vera Wang gown with jeweled shoes" she was planning on wearing or, should things go awry, the "beige beaded chiffon Valentino" that was her backup). Instead, she mixed things up, wearing an Armani jacket, Valentino skirt, and, yup, a Gap turtleneck she found in her closet.

Beyond picking stellar red-carpet looks, today's celebrity stylists can have a lot to do with a celeb's image. Just ask Katy Perry, who retained the services of an industry favorite to help her revamp her style.

How to Wear a Skinny Black Choker: A Styling Guide From Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Squad

We've seen quite a few '90s fashion trends return in the past couple of seasons, but the choker (cue memories of Romy and Michelle, Drew Barrymore, et al) is one that hasn't really come back—until now. Thanks to some sartorially adept social media titans (cue Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Hailey Baldwin) the choker is officially back. The crew has styled skinny black chokers for day, night, and any other wardrobe situation you can imagine—and hey, we're inspired.

But first, do you remember these choker-clad moments?

Inspiration ready to be mined, from L to R: Drew Barrymore, Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino in Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, Natalie Portman in The Professional

OK, now that you've brushed up on your '90s fashion history, take a look at how it's done today:

The Casual Look

Intrigued by the look but a bit cautious about how to integrate it into your own closet? The gateway choker is super skinny, plain black and should be worn in the same way you would a 16-inch chain with a delicate charm. This isn't a statement-piece moment, but an everyday item that you could leave on for 24 hours. Study the casual looks from Kendall, Gigi, and Hailey, respectively, below.

The Formal Look

To dress it up for a formal event (or personal style that's more about heels than sneakers), look for a velvet variety. Kim Kardashian West has kept her necklace-of-choice free of embellishments, while Cara Delevingne added a heavy pendant for a cocktail-appropriate look.

Bonus Points

Once you've gotten comfortable with the look, consider switching it up like Gigi and adding the same style in a different shade. A noir necklace would have read aggressively with her otherwise all-white winter look; she switched it up by going with a snowy option.

Rashida Jones’ New Music Video “Flip and Rewind” is an Encyclopedia of ’90s Fashion Trends

Let no one doubt Rashida Jones' very real love for '90s style: The actress has cemented the fact with a music video for her single "Flip and Rewind" that's packed so full of spot-on fashion references that legit photographs from the era must have been copied exactly. The very first flashback outfit we get has at least five different trends happening all at once, from the scrunchie and hoop earrings to the overalls worn over layered tees (with the sleeves rolled to make the twice-as-nice status boldly apparent). And the overalls? Affixed with one strap only and showcasing one of the decade's stranger accessory trends—a bandage stuck on for flair.

"As every person approaching adulthood does, we romanticize and idealize the time when we had less responsibilities . . . and the '90s was kind of a dope place," Rashida told Rolling Stone, calling the clothes "comfortable, bright. We took all of the quintessential R&B videos from the '90s and did our best to recreate them." Along with the aforementioned overalls and double tees, you'll spot boxy blazers, bandanas, Kangol hats, mini backpacks, and knee pads worn as ironic fashion accessory. Streetwear makes an appearance too, a throwback that feels extra interesting to examine through our current athleisure-loving lens. Is this where it all originated?

The scene where the Rashida and crew are cruising around in a Mercedes convertible provided one of her favorite style-based moments of the entire experience.

"We just finished filming and were fully decked out in '90s gear: dark lipstick, bandanas, door-knocker bamboo earrings, jerseys, Star Trek cell phones. We were pulling into the lot, and two real guys pulled up next to us and were like, 'Hey, what's up? What's your name?' And Kidada [Jones, my sister] goes, 'Oh, no, no, no. This isn't real life. We're in the '90s.'"

Did you catch that Kidada reference? The whole video is definitely a family affair, with Rashida's other sister Martina also making an appearance. Samantha Ronson is the double-bunned member of the car ride, and she goes way back with the family (her brother Mark was once engaged to Rashida). And the fly back-up dancers she's jamming with? The ladies are friends from back in the, well, '90s when she attended a private Los Angeles high school.

The '90s have been having a lot of fashion moments recently, including Balmain's stunning new ad campaign showcasing some of the decade's hottest supermodels.

Watch and see how a 90s-style grunge makeover is done.

Now joining the upper ranks of the Balmain army: Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, and Claudia Schiffer. The latest Balmain campaign was released today and it feels like the best kind of time warp! Olivier Rousteing let his favorite lady Kendall Jenner have the day off in favor of some of our all-time favorite '90s muses, and notes distributed from the house portray the designer's excitement at working with the iconic trio.

"While we shot these images, I had to smile as I imagined how my adolescent self would have reacted with utter disbelief if someone could have traveled back in time to tell me that one day I would be in a New York studio, watching Steven Klein shoot Cindy, Claudia, and Naomi for my spring 2016 campaign," he wrote. "Those four singular talents have inspired me from day one. To say that working with them was a dream come true is no exaggeration."

Yolanda Foster has given the world a belated Christmas present by way of her Instagram, sharing a throwback snap of a toddler Gigi Hadid posing on the ski slopes of Aspen. The girl looks fierce in all her late '90s fabulousness, but while the brightly printed ski duds have mostly been replaced by Kardashian-approved monochromes, there's one stylistic choice we've seen grown-up Gigi rocking a lot recently.

Goofy, oversize ski pants and printed puffer aside, can you please zoom in on Gigi's accessories? The top model still wears glasses every now and then, but we're mostly interested in that skinny scarf she has tied tightly around the neck. The jaunty choker look was major in the '90s and, thanks to G and bestie Kendall Jenner, it's having a major resurgence as of late.

For a fall walk in Los Angeles, her beige-and-denim outfit was accented with a thin scarf tied snuggly at the neck.

She'd actually worn the exact same scarf/necklace look a few days earlier, matching it with a different light, neutral top and keeping all other accessories to a minimum.

The smart dresser has also shown the world how to take the look into formal territory, finishing off a saucy black bra top and skirt with a coordinating choker at an after party following this year's American Music Awards.

With wintry weather around us now, it feels a little off to call the piece a legit scarf, but let's be real—that silky number she rocked back in her toddler days wasn't made for warmth either. Some things really do never change.

The Instagram share makes it obvious Gigi was hanging with her mom in Colorado over the holidays, but that's not all she got up to. Come see the adorable way she celebrated with sis Bella!

Mariah Carey Just Revealed Her Favorite ’90s Fashion Moment, Ever

There's no arguing that Mariah Carey was one of the '90s biggest It-girls. Not only was her career was on fire from the beginning — her Grammy-winning first album was released in 1990 (hello, "Vision of Love"); by 1994 she had released her now-iconic Christmas album — but through it all she was also tracking the decade's very best style. A quick peek through her photo archives is all you need to be reminded of the looks you desperately needed/wanted/had-to-have from shops like Limited Too. Those style highlights happened roughly 20 years ago, but it hasn't stopped us from loving them still. Mariah's the same—and she's just revealed her all-time favorite look.

Nope, it's not this mini skirt, spaghetti strap tank, and ankle-strap heel combo, worn to the 1997 premiere of Seven Years in Tibet. Neither the easy simplicity nor the fact she was wearing it when she met Brad Pitt were enough to get it to the top of the list.

Or this seriously Clueless-esque get-up? Nope. Mariah wore the plaid skirt, chunky ankle boots, and shrunken cardigan in the spring of 1994, while the cult classic came out in May of 1995. Take that as proof that the decade's biggest popstar completely influenced its seminal fashion moments.

So, what did rank as her top '90s fashion moment? Turns out Miss Mariah was all about the looks she sported for the "Honey" music video (released in '97).

"I was on a jet ski with my hair back. I was on a boat with my hair blowing, and I was tied up in the Dolce & Gabbana dress," she recounted to Refinery 29. "I jumped out the window, swam through the water, took off my clothes. It was a big-budget flick." Watch it below.

People in Louisiana Just Can’t Get Enough ’90s Fashion Trends, According to Google Data

Combat boots. Levi's 501s. Slip-dresses. Plaid. Dark lipstick. Not only are all of these things totally on-trend right now, but half of them appeared on the recent spring 2016 runways, too. Looks like dressing like it's 1994 is not going anywhere any time soon.

Which is fine by us. Most of us grew up during that era and have nothing but fond feelings for all things grunge, raver, minimalist, and neo-hippie. And, according to Google, we're not the only ones. Not only does The New York Times agree with us, but so does, seemingly, everyone else—especially people in Louisiana. The term "90s clothing" reached an apex of Internet popularity in early 2013, and ever since then, the number of searches for "90s fashion" on Google has sky-rocketed, with the state taking the lead on searching the term.

Not that this is all that surprising. After all, everyone and their mom was wearing Birkenstocks for the last two summers in a row. But, what is surprising—at least to us—are some of the states where "'90s clothing" is most-searched. Take a look at the complete list below, and let us know in the comments: Are you still into the '90s throwback trend? Are you surprised these states popped up on the list?

Pamela Anderson and Amelie Pichard Make Vegan Shoes Inspired By the ’90s

Pamela Anderson's never been shy about her support of PETA and vegan fashion; now, she's putting her money where her mouth (err, foot) is and introducing a vegan range that's made of eco-friendly materials. Anderson paired with French accessories designer Amélie Pichard to create shoes and bags inspired by Malibu, Saint-Tropez, and the '90s. In total, the range has seven styles of shoes and one beach bag.

"It's great to have this reemergence," Anderson told WWD of the decade that marked her most infamous fashion moments (starring a little red Baywatch swimsuit). "It's good for me, for my career, to sustain myself, to do fun activism projects like this. Vegans can be sexy. Super fun, super stylish, and conscious because young people want to make better choices when it comes to consuming, when it comes to fashion."

The working relationship between Anderson and Pichard came to be via Instagram, where Pichard has posted 90s-fabulous pics of Anderson and revealed her as a muse for past creations. The designer isn't exclusively vegan, but said the challenge was a good one, with lots of work going into finding planet-friendly materials (she found a lot of success in London, where eco is a big focus). Plastic, cotton, acrylic, rubber, and a microfiber typically used in car interiors were all used.

Interested in shopping? The pieces will hit Los Angeles' Opening Ceremony on Dec. 10 before spreading to Colette and Ssense in January; prices will range between $490 and $950.
