Today is Jennifer Aniston’s birthday! The beloved actress rose to prominence for playing the role of Rachel Green in the hit ’90s sitcom Friends. Every time the topic of ’90s style is brought up, Rachel Green is one of the first names that come to mind. Green’s wardrobe was every girl’s dream back in the ’90s. A pleated tartan mini-skirt, a bodycon gingham check dress, baggy blue jeans, a baseball cap, plaid pants, and a dungaree are just a few closet essentials we would like to steal from Rachel.
However, Rachel Green wasn’t the only fashion icon back then. Jennifer Aniston, who played the character, also had a strong fashion game back in the ’90s. It would be a crime to talk about fashion back then and not mention the actress. ’90s trends are coming back strong, and whatever trend you’re thinking of, chances are Aniston has worn the trend first and better. So, in honor of her 52nd birthday today, let’s take a look back at some of the most iconic fashion moments and trends throughout Aniston’s career.
Cargo Pants and Flip Flops
It seems Jennifer Aniston wore in this picture ’90s trend that is continuously starring in every fashion blog around, almost 20 years ago! Wearing a ribbed tank top, cargo pants, flip flops, and a fanny pack – Aniston nailed street style with this look. This street style inspiration is a perfect combination of nostalgia and modernism.
Making LBDs cool before they were even a thing. Although this look screams 90’s, a slinky, strappy black LBD and barely-there sandals are still relevant today. The look is super minimalistic and can be a perfect desk to dinner outfit. This is hardly the first or last time Aniston has worn the LBD, which has since become one of the actress’ signature looks.
Evening Gown and Choker
At the 2002 Emmys, Jennifer Aniston won her very first award for her character Rachel Green. For the event, she opted for a chiffon blush pink gown and a choker of the same tint. The gown had a plunging neckline and was ruffled at the hem. Jennifer paired her embellished gown with a fabric blush pink choker. For her glam look, she wore minimal makeup and opted for wavy locks.
Thigh-Hig Slit Gowns
After the blush pink number, Jennifer Aniston wore some fabulous and cheeky gowns on the red carpet. At the 2010 Golden Globes, the We Are The Millers actress opted for a black one-shoulder gown that featured a sleek thigh-high slit. She paired her gown with black strappy heels and fine cut diamond bracelets. She finished off her look with effortless locks and a nude lip tint.
There is absolutely no denying that Aniston’s red Valentino gown at the 2013 Oscars was an iconic red carpet look. The off-shoulder taffeta loaded gown took the form of a huge umbrella down her waist. To complete her look Jennifer opted for clear fine-cut diamond bracelets and dainty earrings. This is of course just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Aniston’s iconic looks or trends we have to thank her for. Which look from the ones attached above is your favorite?
