You'd never know it's her by this old hairstyle.
Another reason to love Reese Witherspoon: She also has embarrassing pictures of herself from the 90s. But unlike us, she shares them with the world to make us all feel better about our past fashion choices. In the photo a young Reese sports four topknots across her crown, skinny brows, baby blue eyeshadow, several chokers, and a pale blue spaghetti strap tank top. She credits her style choice to Gwen Stefani in her caption saying, “I’m pretty sure you are to blame for this fashion inspiration.”
While the 90s are definitely making a comeback in fashion at the moment, we can’t say we’ll be replicating this beauty look any time soon. Sorry, Reese! Which is why it’s extra ironic that her makeup artist, Molly Stern, was apparently the one to bring the picture to her attention. She thanks Stern in her comment saying, “When you’re having an awesome week at work and then one of your besties sends you a #tbt to bring you back to reality.”
But if you do want to get retro with your beauty routine, here are some other ways to go about doing so that we’re loving. Try a nude lip. Choose one with a slightly pink hue so that your lips still have a nice flush. We love Super Cindy by Charlotte Tilbury ($34; nordstrom.com). Or instead of curls, try crimping your hair instead. You can use a tool like the GHD Contour Professional Performance Crimper ($169; sephora.com) or just create braids all over and sleep in them over night to wake up with texture.
