Party season is almost here and with 90s aesthetics still very much in vogue, why not look to your favourite stars of the decade for some sartorial inspiration? Whether it’s Winona Ryder’s gothic glamour or Sarah Michelle Gellar’s soft sateen finishes, we have you covered with the ultimate pieces for that special occasion.
Quintessential child star and Studio 54 regular, Drew Barrymore ruled the 90s red carpets with her blonde ringlets and effortless coquettishness. Looking to channel her this party season? Think sateen-style slip dresses with matching chokers and don’t forget a vampish lip.
Enduring grunge cool exudes from every part of Winona Ryder, an actress who's a sartorial cornerstone for 90s fashion. From her starring roles in Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and Girl, Interrupted, to the $10 vintage dress she wore to the Oscars, her kooky starlet status is undeniable. Go gothic this festive season with a black lace piece to emulate some of her most glamourous looks.
Queen of the cult teen movie (we’re talking Jawbreaker, Scream and The Doom Generation), Rose McGowan was nothing short of a fashion phenomenon during the 90s. Accessorise your party dress like hers this winter with the addition of a faux fur stole for an instant luxe uplift to your look.
Way before Regina George of Mean Girls came Cher Horowitz, the sweet yet spoilt Valley Girl of Clueless; played by Alicia Silverstone. Taking the 90s by storm in movies like Batman and Robin, True Crime and The Crush, the actress earned her spot amongst Hollywood’s finest. On the red carpet, she ditched the dress for an alternative look, calling on structured pantsuits for a formal statement. Make like Alicia and think tailored blazers paired with cigarette trousers.
Despite her career that has spanned almost 20 years, we have a soft spot for 90s Jolie. Breaking onto the scene with a gothic, vampy aesthetic, the star also had a penchant for shimmer. Adopt her look with a sequin mini dress with high neck detail for a nod to all things retro.
Ultimate California girl Cameron Diaz had us laughing with comedies like The Mask and There’s Something About Mary and in awe of her when it came to the red carpet. A fan of sheer ensembles, get her look come party time with a mesh detailed LBD.
SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR
You can’t talk about 90s fashion moments without mentioning Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Gellar, the most sartorially-inspiring vampire slayer out there. Events saw the actress opt for sateen finishes which were bang on trend during the decade. Take your party look to the next level with a maxi playsuit for high impact.
