From Cher Horowitz To Mia Wallace: The 25 Most Stylish Movie Icons of the '90s

Vivian Ward, Pretty Woman

When Julia Roberts first appears onscreen in Pretty Woman, she's nearly unrecognizable in her "lady of the streets" get-up. With a blonde bob, knee-high boots and belly-baring dress (is it even a dress?), Vivian Ward isn't exactly a style icon when we first meet her. But thanks to millionaire Richard Gere–and his credit card–she transforms into the classy, heart-of-gold gal she truly is. In one of the best shopping montages of all time, Ward shows off her burgeoning style skills. She wears many great outfits—the red opera dress, for one—but it's the simple brown and cream polka-dot polo match dress that exhibits her new, classier style to a T. Paired with elegant white gloves, a hat with matching brim and pearl drops, Vivian Ward looks every inch a millionaire's girlfriend. But don't worry—she still acts like herself while whooping and stomping divots with abandon.

When Pulp Fiction's Mia Wallace climbed on stage, kicked off her shoes and did the twist with Vincent Vega at Jack Rabbit Slims, she redefined a look. Saint Laurent may have invented le smoking, but her white button-down (with cufflinks!) and black slacks look instantly became iconic. Somehow, the too-long shirt and cropped trousers looked feminine, effortless and enviable.

It's style moments like these that make '90s movies style continue to resonate on the runways 20 years later. Erdem sent out goth looks à la The Craft for Fall 2014, and crop tops and Dr. Martens are constantly getting snapped by street style photographers on bloggers and off-duty models alike.

I've already covered our favorite '90s style stars from the small screen and the music world, so let's take a look back at all the best movie style icons of the decade. Ranking these iconic characters would be impossible, so all are arranged in order of their movie's premiere date. Click through to shop the closets of your favorite '90s movie icons!
