They Were The 7 Most Iconic 'It Girls' Of The 90s, But What Do They Look Like Now?

The 90s seemed to be a pretty big decade for teens. There were so many cool girls that we all wanted to be like. Seriously, there was someone for everyone. Whether you wanted to idolize the popular blonde girl, or the quirky unique girl, there was an 'it girl' that fit every style.

They all had their own hits, but it feels like it's been forever since we've caught up with our favorite 'it girls.' Let's check out what they look like now.

1. Winona Ryder

Warner Bros.

She seemed as though she was the original 'manic pixie dream girl' stereotype, after always playing an oddball in movies like Beetlejuice, and Edward Scissorhands. She has continued acting consistently and currently stars in the incredibly successful show Stranger Things.

2. Drew Barrymore

After getting started in the business young, Drew Barrymore became a total icon in the 90s. She had this flower child style that people completely loved and people still can't get enough of her. She's got a lot going on lately, including her own show called The Santa Clarita Diet.

Tyra Banks managed to make a name for herself as one of the biggest models in the 90s. She was a Victoria's Secret angel, turned actress, turned entrepreneur. She launched her own television show, America's Next Top Model, and even had a talk show for a while. She's a mom now and still looks pretty incredible.

4. Claire Danes


My So-Called Life was a great teen drama that we all loved in the 90s. We all felt for Angela while she was in love with Jordan Catalano. She also was in the Leonardo DiCaprio version of Romeo & Juliet so there was also that. More recently she has been on the show Homeland solving some huge crimes.


There are more 'it girls' where that came from...

5. Alicia Silverstone

Paramount Pictures

A list of 90s 'it girls' wouldn't be complete with Cher Horowitz. Alicia Silverstone was probably one of the most important characters that we all loved. Between her perfect hair, her awesome wardrobe, and her sweet personality, we all wanted to be a little bit more like her. She now spends a lot of time with her family and has focused on living an organic lifestyle. She even teamed up with an organic multivitamin company.

6. Kate Moss

She was one of the most popular models of the 90s, and is probably the reason why you wore your Calvin Klein underwear and CK One perfume. She still has endorsements with various companies, including a clothing line with Topshop.

7. Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson was an icon in the 90s, and managed to stand out from her brother's success. She has continued making music over the years and recently had her first child!

Who was your idol in the 90s? It's almost unfair that they all still look amazing even 20 years later...
