20 Times Our Favorite Celebrities Were Guilty Of Fashion Crimes In The '90s

- Page 1

Styles come and go, but fashion sense is eternal. Actually, not really. These photos from the '90s prove that your personal style gets better with age, because these stars wouldn't be caught dead in these outfits today.

1. Celine Dion

News 18

Dion is known as a fashion icon these days, but we still have a lot of questions about this "reverse suit." The singer walked the red carpet at the 1999 Oscars looking like Carmen Sandiego in arctic camouflage, and unsurprisingly she changed her outfit before performing in the ceremony.

2. The Kardashian-Jenners

ABC News

Denim abuse will be a recurring theme on this list, but no one went all-out like reality TV's most famous family, in this wholesome group photo from 1991. If you can name everyone in this photo by sight, you probably need to get out more.

3. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman


One thing you'll notice about the '90s is stars kept things casual, even at public events. Cruise apparently couldn't even be bothered to iron his shirt before leaving his handprints at Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

4. Christina Aguilera


1999 was a notable year for Aguilera's fashion choices, including this mish-mash from the 1999 Teen Choice Awards that combines a lot of '90s fads.

Is it spangly? Check. It it frilly? Check. Is it mesh? Check. Did she accessorize with strappy heels and a super-long necklace? Check and check.

5. Jared Leto


Patterned vests (especially combined with gold chains) were a major trend in the '90s, but this photo only proves they were a bad idea. If a rock/movie star couldn't pull it off, what hope did any of us have?

6. Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson


This celebrity power couple were always making headlines, including for their questionable fashion choices. I don't even know where to start with this one, but I just hope Lee's trench coat stayed tied up.

7. The Spice Girls

Yes, it was part of the girl group's gimmick to sport the zany outfits that matched their character in the band, but you can't convince me Posh and Mel B. don't regret being seen in these 20 years later.

8. Lil Kim


This rapper made a big impression during her short career, thanks in part to outfits like this one from the 1999 VMAs. Even Diana Ross couldn't resist poking fun at it on stage.

9. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake


When these two were together in the '90s, they were the King and Queen of pop music. But they obviously didn't have anyone in charge of the royal wardrobe. Between Britney's distressed top and Justin's off-the-rack Kmart Hawaiian shirt, they look like they just walked off two different movie sets.

10. Jon Bon Jovi


The rocker made a serious impression on the red carpet for the 1991 Oscars. With his sunglasses, Farrah Fawcett hair, and a suit either made out of crushed velvet or Grimace, it's safe to say nobody was copying his look that night.

The Origin Of The Most Unusual Fad Of The 90s Proves It's Much More Than A Flash In The Pan

We all remember that one kid on the playground who was slapping around a stick as though it was the most impressive thing in the universe. Sure, it probably required a decent amount of skill, but the Devil Sticks fad died out fairly quickly and we all moved on to the next great craze. But the truth is, Devil Sticks aren't just a 90s thing. They actually started over a century before they became a craze on every playground in the country. The Origin Of Devil SticksIt's hard to know the exact origin of Devil Sticks, mostly because they go


12 Pictures Of Men’s Fashion From The '70s That Will Make You Glad Baggy Jeans Exist

I'm glad I didn't grow up in the 70s. While women's fashion back in the day wasn't the most beautiful thing you've ever seen, men's fashion was just hideous. Men wore tight booty shorts, bell-bottoms, cable-knit vests, drawstring pants, and lots of other clothes that just yelled "I'm so stylish." But hey, that's just my opinion. Take a look for yourself: 1. If Coachella existed in the '70s, I'm certain all guys would be dressed like this. As a woman, I haven't even worn shorts like that! Vintag2. This Dustin Hoffman look-alike seems like he's having a grand time. On
