8 Celebs Who Were 90s Grunge Icons

101413_0831_KateMossdhe1-659x395

There are some girls out there that are really good at the whole “put together” look. You know, sleek pony tails, all white attire, and perfectly manicured toes peeping out of their Tory Burch flip flops. If you are this girl, kudos to you. We probably aren’t friends, because I can’t wear all white without spilling buffalo sauce on myself within the first 30 minutes. I also personally think Tory Burch flip flops are $300 patent leather death traps, but kudos to you nonetheless.

If you are the kind of girl who has half her wardrobe in the back seat of her car, and you run solely on dry shampoo for a week straight, we could probably hang.

The 90s Gods smiled upon girls like us when the grunge movement caught fire. Thanks to grunge, we can roll out of bed, throw on some ripped denim and a crop top, and still be marked off as fashionable. If you need some advice on how to wear your wrinkled flannel, look no further then these 90s grunge icons.

1. Gwen Stefani

If you were absent on the day they explained how to rock a crop top, take some lessons from Gwen Stefani. Queen of the bare midriff.

2. Kurt Cobain

Lets be real, if it wasn’t for Kurt Cobain or Nirvana, flannels would still be a thing only lumberjacks wear.

3. Johnny Depp

I’m convinced that Johnny Depp isn’t a real person. He’s just a beautiful robot that was programmed to be perfectly disheveled all the time.

4. Jane Lane

In a perfect world, Jane Lane would be our best friend and she would let us borrow her combat boots.

5. Drew Barrymore

Beanies, denim, leather, and converse. Drew did the 90’s right.

Kim+Gordon

6. Kim Gordon

Grunge goddess Kim Gordon might just be the coolest person to ever roam the earth. We know her best for making beautiful music with Sonic Youth, buts she’s also an accomplished visual artist, writer, and producer with bad ass style to match. She’s basically who you want to be when you grow up.

Liv and Mia Tyler

7. Liv Tyler

If you thought grunge couldn’t be sexy, just google Liv Tyler. Liv dominated the 90s with her sexy spin on grunge style.

8. PJ Harvey

PJ taught us that when it comes to grunge fashion, there are no rules. So kick some ass, take some names, and wear whatever the hell you want. After all, grunge is the anti-fashion movement.
