When I was a teenager I embarrassingly had a crazy amount of pictures from BOP Magazine on my wall. These included the likes of Andrew Keegan and various other celebs who have virtually dissapeared from view now. During those times there were so many girls who I thought were the bees knees. So since I’ve done a post on the 90s hearthrobs, here are the girls who I would have gladly switched places in when I was young.
and of course Courtney Love

there are so many more but we’ll save that for a future post!
*Fairuza Balk in The Craft
The 90s did have many questionable fashion moments. This post will not be about one of them. It’s time to remember the age of the choker necklace. Although this necklace came in many forms, it still remains a fashion essential today in any accessories closet. I used my power of intense internet research to think about every possible 90s film that featured the choker. Surprisingly it was quite difficult to locate images all in one place. From black velvet, lace, even spiked dog collars I’ve found some staple women in the 90s who continue to serve as daily inspiration in my own life.
Shirley Manson from Garbage
Tiffani Amber Theissen
Elisa Donovan (aka. Amber in Clueless)
Brenda in 90210
Tai from Clueless
Oh yeah, they weren’t just for the ladies. Jared Leto (aka. Jordan Catalano from MSCL) did the “string choker” proud.
Probably one of the funnies choker references of the 90s comes from Janeane Garofalo in Reality Bites.
To end my retrospective, I thought that the best use of the choker was Natalie Portman in The Professionals. It essentially was a character in itself.

Who would have ever predicted that 15 years ago the grungy girl from “Hackers” would become one of the most inspiring people in Hollywood? From her out there attitude to her random rumors, she has always been one of my favorite icons.
I tried to gather some inspirational photos of her in the 90s to show my love on this Friday morning.
How fully awesome is this polaroid? 90s in a nutshell.
Both of them in Girl, Interrupted is pretty much the best thing ever.
I loved when she was married to Johnny Lee Miller…
