Forget the Kimyes, the Tayvins, and the Hendalls of today. None of these celebrity duos can hold a candle to Hollywood's most fashionable couples from the '90s and their impeccable sense of style. These trendsetting — and often coordinating — pairs from the decade that gave the world Nirvana, Clueless, and Friends have influenced how other people dressed in the last few years, from the red carpet to street style. In addition, the term “power couple” is thrown around so much today that it’s easy to forget that there was a time not long ago when being called this way actually meant so much more.
The '90s ushered in an era in Hollywood when stars from different worlds (whether it's film, music, sports, or fashion) formed spectacular unions, which everyone obsessed over — like Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder. As one of the most famous couples of the '90s, the Edward Scissorhands co-stars cemented their love with Depp's tattoo on his right shoulder that read "Winona Forever." He famously altered this tattoo to "Wino Forever" after they broke up, but Depp soon found himself in the arms of supermodel Kate Moss (whom he dated for four years).
Depp and Ryder's infamous relationship aside, there were several other '90s couples that had amazing fashion sense, whether it's the minimalist luxe served by Gwyneth and Brad, the old Hollywood glamour of Nicole and Tom, or the grunge legacy inspired by Kurt and Courtney. In honor of these legendary lovers from the '90s, let's take a look back at their iconic fashion moments — made twice as fabulous:
Kate Moss & Johnny Depp
The supermodel and her A-list beau were the epitome of '90s cool.
