The ’90s were the best of times; hair scrunchies, platform shoes, glitter for days. Ah, memories.
Truth be told, the ’90s were a high point for girl power. From TV to music to film, ’90s women were hot, fierce forces to be reckoned with. We looked up to them, in all their peace-sign throwing glory… especially the fifteen listed below.
15. Britney Spears
IT’S BRITNEY, BITCH!
Let’s start with the obvious… ‘90s Britney was the hottest girl in town. She was dating the most famous boy band singer of the ‘90s (one Mr. Justin Timberlake), she rocked the adorable school-girl vibe, she had yet to get knocked up by K-Fed and shave her head. She was it. And we wanted it.
14. Christina Aguilera
If you weren’t wanting to be the ’90s good girl, it’s because you wanted to be the ’90s bad girl. Pre-mom Christina was the badass Genie in A Bottle we all envied.
13. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
The only thing we loved more than one awesome ’90s girl was TWO of them. In the late ’90s, the Olsens were just beginning to hit their prime, gracefully moving towards a career that would leave them financially set for life. Between the funky style and hot on-screen boyfriends, we all wanted to be their bestie (and we all had a favorite… looking at you, Mary-Kate).
12. Alicia Silverstone
Alicia Silverstone played rich, hilarious Cher in ’90s Clueless. Clever and fashion-forward, she and bestie Dion would hop in that cute little white Jeep and drive off into the perfect life we all wanted.
11. Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston grabbed all the cute guys- she was married to Brad Pitt, for God’s sake! She played adorable fashionista on the best sitcom of all-time, Friends, and she even coined the signature ‘Rachel Green’ haircut. What’s not to love?
