These Photos Proving That Women From The ’90s Were The Most Gorgeous In History

It's no exaggeration to say the 90s are the most memorable period. Denim dominated the fashion world, weird buzzwords were all over the place, and sitcoms were all the rage on television. Girls were obsessed with Clarissa Darling's life, while sitcoms like "Full House" made people worry about the relationships of celebrities. Those TV series helped launch the careers of some of the most famous celebrities today.
At that time, there were so many celebrities on our screens and magazine covers that it was almost hard to keep track of them all. It's been 30 to 40 years since some of the biggest stars hit their stride and are still as popular as they are today. Others live a more laid-back life and have been somewhat isolated from society.
So we decided to look back at images of female celebrities shot when they were young to show you why they have such successful careers. And you may be surprised to know how gorgeous they were before.
