I myself am a ‘9 0s daughter. I only didn’t know it at the time.
But looking back, I picture the lipliner and remember listening to Hole for the first time. I certainly owned more butterfly clips than I’ll ever be comfortable admitting. Grunge, plaid, and brown lipstick are just three reasons for the ‘9 0s was not an easy decade to be sexy.
Yet somehow, there was an overload of female fame sex symbols for my young and awkward self to admire in awe. Maybe the ‘9 0s weren’t so bad after all. Hell, compared to the ‘8 0s, they were some pretty proud years.
After all, we fucking walked with a serious slew of seductive celebrities who’ve since been seen the copulation icons of the activities of the decade. And what’s even more amazing than the surplus of sex pots the ‘9 0s delivered, is how many of them are still earnestly smoking red-hot today.
Here are 10 sex symbols from the ‘9 0s whose sex appeal will just not quit.
Pamela Anderson, then
With her famed red one-piece and a digit that souls were willing to risk drowning to see up-close, this Baywatch babe could seriously be the frontrunner for THE sex symbol of the’ 90 s.
Between her assets( playing, of course , not sure what you thought I necessitated ), and an evident strip of some sort, the buxom blonde became a major sex symbol of the’ 90 s who had plastic surgeon’s waiting rooms overflowing with potential Pams by the end of the decade.
Pamela Anderson , now
The former seaside seductress has recently been seen boast a far better downplayed seem. While we will admit that the difference is jarring, she’s simply stupefying sans her mark black eyeliner.
Cindy Crawford, then
Cindy was the 90′ s supermodel that had us all wants to know why the blaze jeans didn’t look like that on us.
The supermodel socialite was a serious sex symbol by the end of the activities of the decade and appeared to have singlehandedly substantiated Pepsi sales in the’ 90 s.
Cindy Crawford , now
And unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 20 years, you know that Cindy’s sexy skills more than only survived the decades … they’ve multiped.
The former supermodel is now a super mama, successful entrepreneur, and continues to give young models a run for their money.
Cindy Crawford is the sex symbol of the’ 90 s whose sex simply will not quit.
Drew Barrymore, then
Any girl who visualized Mad Love when it came out in 1995 wanted to marry Chris O’Donnell and be Drew Barrymore.
Looking back, I can see Drew for what she was … She was kind of everything.( And before being ” everything” was everything ).
She was authentically grunge, hitherto she was like, super sugary at the same time. And not in that annoying way, either.
She even made a lisp seem sexy.
There’s no question that Drew Barrymore was a hot merchandise in the’ 90 s.
Drew Barrymore , now
It’s no wonder that Drew continues to be considered such a successful and sex girl figure today, over twenty years later.
She’s still a leading lady, has her own flower beautiful wire, Flower Beauty , and has just exhausted her firstly clothing way, Dear Drew , available at Amazon Fashion.
And I’ll be checking that out in approximately 2.5 seconds. Gotta run!
Gwen Stefani, then
She was the platinum-haired, red-lipped punk leading lady of the’ 90 s, who had foolish abs, if I recall correctly.
And for me recall anyone’s abs at all, male or female, they must have been pretty remarkable.
There’s just No Doubt about Gwen Stefani’s 90′ s sex appeal.
Gwen Stefani , now
And, of course, she still seems amazing.
Which is so unfair because it’s been 20 years and my teenage ego will literally never live up to this sexy ska sorcery of sorts.
It’s just madness, I tell you!
Jennifer Aniston, then
During the’ 90 s, Jennifer Aniston was America’s sitcom sweetie. Aniston’s cult classic “Rachel” haircut on Sidekick motivated millions of women to opt for coatings, in what were mostly miscarried struggles at recreating Aniston’s now famous’ 90 s style.
It was a haircut to which I can personally avow was not nearly as stunning on the rest of us.
But it wasn’t merely her haircut that attained history; the star’s sexy mode and comedienne chops was tantamount to her’ 90 s sex symbol status.
Jennifer Aniston , now
And sure enough, Jennifer Aniston still has us simultaneously chuckling and swooning 20 years later.
We’re not sure what they’re putting in Aveeno products these days, but whatever natural sillines it may be, we’ll have what she’s having. Actually, we’ll go two.
While Aniston’s status as a sex symbol may have started in the’ 90 s, it’s safe to say she’s been one ever since.
I’ll be heading to CVS for some Aveeno produces now. Let’s hope it turns out better than the haircut did.
Jenny McCarthy, then
If you owned a pair of Candies in the’ 90 s then you’re probably just as humiliated as I am right now.
But, in the’ 90 s, Jenny McCarthy could have sold us just about anything, anywhere, even on a toilet.
And that’s saying a lot.
The’ 90 s vixen drawn has become a bad girlfriend search good and became the Singled Out sex symbol of the decade.
Jenny McCarthy , now
In more recent years, The blonde bombshell currently facing backlash over for her assault at advocating for autism awareness by villainizing vaccines.
And while McCarthy’s ideologies have been proven flat-out false and even done some damage to society’s understanding of the condition … Jenny was just make what all mothers do; crusading like hell for her kid, and yes, sometimes, that means getting it wrong.
But her reasons were all mom, and because of that, this’ 90 s sex icon deserves a bit slack.
So despite falling short in her advocacy tries, Jenny continues to succeed at that which moved her famed in the first place; she’s still a seductive patrol to be calculated with and remains a defining sex symbol of the decade.
P.S. Watch Dirty Love if you haven’t seen it. It is fricken hilarious.
Denise Richards, then
Denise Richards was the super red-hot biatch that you did not want to mess with in’ 90 s movies.
She was especially sexy and frightening in her late 90′ s capacities in Wild Things and Drop Dead Gorgeous .
She culminated the activities of the decade as a Attachment daughter, and thus officially shown her status as a sex symbol of the’ 90 s.
Denise Richards , now
Considering she was married to Charlie Sheen, we’re not sure how Denise Richards survived the past few decades with her incandescence unscathed, but she did.
While this’ 90 s copulation icon is slightly less intimidating today, she is as stunning as ever.
Sarah Michelle Gellar, then
It was almost cruel being a teenage girl in the era of Sarah Michelle Gellar.
During the’ 90 s, she was Hollywood’s good AND bad girlfriend. From assassinating ogres as’ Buffy’ to manipulating imaginations in Cruel Intentions , Sarah Michelle Gellar is still considered one of the most defining sex symbols of the’ 90 s.
Sarah Michelle Gellar , now
And just like those pesky ghouls, Sarah Michelle’s beauty never dies. She continues to slay, triumphing a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New Television Series for her persona in The Crazy Ones , alongside Robin Williams.
Not only is Sarah Michelle Gellar a major sex symbol of the’ 90 s, she’s so darn likable, we can’t even be mad that she’s still got that glow going on.
Neve Campbell, then
Neve was the’ 90 s’ it’ girlfriend and starred in the decades most memorable cult classics.
While she spent the first half of the 90′ s partying it up on the ten-strike series, Party of Five , by the mid’ 90 s Neve had bewitched the nation in The Craft and had everyone rooting for the hot girl to live in the decade’s defining horror film , Scream .
Neve Campbell , now
While Neve has kept happens relatively mellowed since her’ 90 s wild flash, she did make time to film Scream 2, 3 , and 4 .
The’ 90 s sex symbol is more recently known for her persona on Netflix hit drama , House of Poster , where she’s shown us that she still has that same’ girl next door’ appeal, all preventing it super sexy.
Winona Ryder, then
At the beginning of the’ 90 s, Winona was almost a niche Edward Scissor Mitt sort of sexy, if you will.
But by the end of the activities of the decade, Winona was everybody’s Girl, Interrupted .
Winona Ryder , now
Since the’ 90 s, Winona has had a few off-screen dramas, but she’s more recently channeling her rebellious’ 90 s sex symbol attitude back into onscreen dramas, like her recent role on Netflix’s critically acclaimed Stranger Things .
And we can’t deny she wears her drama well. The’ 90 s sex symbol still looks insanely gorge.
Whatever these’ 90 s sex symbols have been doing since their entries, it’s working. Being grunge and sexy and the same time was certainly no easy feat … but their ability to maintain their sexy status for over 20 years is astonishing. Not to mention, ridiculously unfair.
These’ 90 s sex symbols still seem stunning. But can they maybe step aside for a few cases? Being awestruck for this long is seriously exhausting.
And considering they’ve been stunning us for over two decades, they’ve got to need a escape by now, right?
But we already know … This sort of sexy simply doesn’t seem to quit, so let’s not litter our vigor by comprising our breaths.
We’ve got another few decades to try to keep up with these ladies. Anyone else need a nap right about now?
Share this with the’ 90 s babe in your life!
