Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman

Julia Roberts is one of my all-time beauty favourites – I love that she embraces her natural beauty and her smile is all she really needs to wear. Likewise in the ultimate 90s movie, Pretty Woman, when she transforms from her street persona, who’s all liner and blush and eyebrows, to her real self, Vivian Ward.

She can work either look beautifully, but the brows, skin and youthful flush of blush from the parts of the movie where she’s got her natural red curls showing is my favourite.

Demi Moore in A Few Good Men

It’s a 90s movie I’ve seen a hundred times before, and for some wild reason I always focused on the acting, the iconic one-liners (“you can’t HANDLE the truth!”) and Tom Cruise before he got his teeth redone. But last time I watched it, I found myself transfixed by the coral lip, coral eye seriously modern combination that Demi was rocking.

Natural, brushed-up brows accompanied a really fresh and natural take on orange, and inspired by her, I recreated the look the next day. It’s summer in a face. Try it.

Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction

How many celebs have gone over to the bob side recently? Many. And the iconic red lip? Uma as Mia Wallace will always be a beauty icon, spawning thousands upon thousands of cut-price Halloween copies (myself being one of them), but always bringing the drama.

The sharp, matte, true red lip, combined with the pared-back skin and blonder-than-they-should’ve-been brows are a look that carried well out of the 90s.

How to recreate the glossy, lived-in hair at Victoria Beckham AW21

“The hair look really was inspired by the early 90s,” says Victoria Beckham. “I like the idea of quite heavy hair, heavy fringes, that hair that looks like it’s been slept in a little bit, with a little bit of a bend in it.” Here’s how to recreate the lived-in luxe look from her AW21 show.
