General consensus says that a decade tends to stretch out for a few years past its welcome. The early ‘90s look like the late ‘80s, and the early aughts look like the late ‘90s. So it makes sense that the final coffin nail in the ‘90s was hammered in 2005 when Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston officially announced their break up.

The star crossed celebrities got together in the late ‘90s, and rumors of their break up began in 2004 after reports that Brad was hooking up with Mr. And Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie. In January 2005 the couple released a joint statement announcing their divorce. It read in part:

For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any of the speculation reported by the tabloid media. This decision is the result of much thoughtful consideration. We happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and admiration for one another.

The divorce would not be finalized until October of that year, by then Pitt was reportedly already dating Jolie.

Considered to one of the most beautiful women on the planet, Adriana Lima got her start with Victoria’s Secret in 1999, and throughout the decade she earned the vaulted title as one of the “new supers,” a rare group of young women who rose out of the dregs of the models of the 2000s to take over the world.

Even if you don’t keep up with the world of fashion you’ve seen Lima in one aspect of your life or another. She’s modeled for everyone from Maybelline, H&M, Fendi, and so on and so forth.

By 2008 she set a record for the amount of times a woman has appeared on the cover of GQ and ranked as the world's fourth highest paid supermodel by Forbes Magazine.
