12 actresses we SO wanted to be in the 1990s

In case you hadn’t noticed there’s some sort of ‘90s revival going on. Teenagers are wearing slip dresses and grungy shirts, TFI Friday is back on TV, Danny Boyle has announced that a Trainspotting sequel may be out next year. Even Liam and Noel are feuding in the tabloids again.

Oh, it takes us back - back to a great decade for young female actresses. Here, Stylist contributor Katharine Busby reminds us just how much we wished we could live the lives of these 12 actresses who just were the ‘90s.

From the roles they landed to the men they kissed, we were green with envy at it all.
