Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and 13 Other Women Who Ruled the '90s Emmys
We don’t mean to sound stuck in the past, but one of our favourite pastimes is looking at red carpet images before Instagram existed, before we could rattle off the names of every actress’s personal stylist and before the trends of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s made a return in the new millennium. This time around, we have our sight set on the Emmys circa the ’90s.
With the primetime television awards set to take place this coming Monday, September 19, the photos ahead feature some very familiar faces from the shows we’ve binged countless times. What’s more, they also showcase the daring style choices of TV’s leading ladies.
Be it Sarah Michelle Gellar in a corset and tiny sunglasses, Halle Berry in a full-length tutu, or Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen sporting coordinated ruffles, the outfits of the ’90s Emmys are probably even better than you remember them. Scroll down for a reminder.
While Aniston was a master of ’90s minimalism, this ornately detailed halter dress remains one of her most memorable looks. Extra points for her teeny gold handbag and Brad Pitt’s futuristic sunnies.
Berry’s look is one part ballerina, one part black tie, and all kinds of amazing.
Who’s the cuter couple: Joey and Dawson or Holmes and her flower clutch?
