8 Iconic '90s Looks I Want To Recreate

Here are some '90s looks that I have been wanting to recreate ever since I saw them. In no particular order...

1. Who didn't want to look like Liv Tyler in "Empire Records." She was still is hot! I know I could never pull off a midriff shirt or have the legs to wear a plaid mini with Doc Martens, but I can dream right?

2. I don't like Celine Dion's music but seeing how she looked in an oversized sweater rolling around the bed in the video "Power of Love" made me want to be that sexy. I still think a woman in just a sweater can be so seductive. No?

3. I totally related to T.L.C because they were tomboys who could still look hot. I grew up a tomboy and have blossomed into a woman now but I never pulled off the looks they did... baggy overalls anyone? After the "Creep" video I've always wanted silk pajamas... I thought they were the hottest thing. Don't judge me.

4. Mariah Carey was the "it" girl of the '90s. She looked so naturally beautiful dancing around a flower field in her "Dreamlover" video in cut off jeans, converse and a plaid shirt. I wish I could look so effortless!

5. One of the most vivid outfits I remember from the '90s was this woman who performed with "Paradise By the Dashboard Light" with Meat Loaf in a full head to toe white. Her name is Karla DeVito and I thought she looked so kick ass! I'm still on a quest for white jeans like hers.

6. Who didn't want to be Liz Hurley in that Versace safety pins dress? HOT HOT HOT! She wasn't a well-known actress when she wore it but she has kept everyone talking since then. Isn't that what a great dress does?

7. Tina Turner has so many great looks, but I loved how great her legs looked in this outfit. This has been my "back up" Halloween costume for years: black capris, black top, big belt, pumps and teased hair (so simple!). She's a legend- love her!

8. Alicia Silverstone was another darling of the '90s. I love Clueless (don't get me wrong) but I don't think I'd recreate any of those looks. I preferred her in her grunge stage in the Aerosmith videos, especially in that floral baby doll dress with Doc Martens (so 90s!) in the "Cryin" video.
