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

They could be twins... Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, 1994

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 a 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.

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.

It’s hard to imagine now, but in the early ‘90s no one was quite sure who Claudia Schiffer was. Sure, she was a super hot model, but she wasn’t a super model until she was photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth. Schiffer’s raw talent was captured by Unwerth for this Guess campaign that’s both sexy and stylish.

Unwerth had a way about her that allowed her to help her models put their guards down when the camera was up. She knew that by making models feel empowered she could get the sexiest image of them. She told Harper’s Bazaar:

The women in my pictures are always strong, even if they are also sexy. My women always look self-assured. I try to make them look as beautiful as they can because every woman wants to feel beautiful, sexy and powerful. That’s what I try to do.
