Rarely Seen Photos That Reveal A Different Side To The 90s

Alicia Silverstone on the set of ‘Clueless’, 1995

The following unseen photos from the 90s are definitely too hot for some viewers. Are they for mature audiences only? We’ll leave that decision up to you…

The final decade of the millennium was an era of change. Generation X had taken the societal reigns from the Baby Boomers and letting their hair down. Fashion was taking a turn for the flannel, and young people were beginning to look for new ways to have a good time.

These snapshots of the 90s show that the decade was full of a kaleidoscopic mix of culture, fashion, and music that made it an unforgettable era to live in - when Anna Nicole Smith was legitimate celebrity and when Johnny Depp was still considered an independent film star.

It’s important to use these pictures from the 90s to take your preconceived notions of the decade and turn them on their head. That’s the coolest part about taking a deep dive into the past… you never know what you’ll find on the other side.

At the naive age of 19 Alicia Silverstone stepped into the spotlight as Cher Horowitz in Clueless, a film that unwittingly set the template for teen movies throughout the ‘90s. From the look, to the dialogue, and even the fact that it’s a loose adaptation of a Victorian era novel (Jane Austen’s Emma), Clueless created a template for everything that followed.

Even though the film is considered a ‘90s classic, during production the studio heads were unsure if the film was going to be a hit or if it was going to Audi 5000 out of the theaters.

The film was a success, but Silverstone says that the way she was spoken about in the media made her feel “extremely isolated” from her peers, but that she learned from the toxic landscape around her and came out better for having lived through it.

The Kardashians have been in the public eye for what feels like eternity but in the ‘90s they were just another family living in Los Angeles. Sure, their father was a hot shot attorney and their then step-father was an Olympian but they were about as regular as could be in Los Angeles.

Kim and Kourtney have always loved the camera and this photo shows it. If you look at the family’s photos from the ‘90s it’s clear that they totally nail the fashion of the era from dark lipstick to thin eyebrows and even Jncos.

Many people have commented that Kim and Kourtney looked like twins growing up and that’s because they were born only a year and a half apart. No wonder they’re so close.
