Sarah Jessica Parker Narrates the History of 1990s Fashion in Vogue

As Vogue celebrates its 125th year, we look back at the history of fashion, and the magazine, in a series of “five points” videos by decade, narrated by the stylish Sarah Jessica Parker.


The 1990s wasn’t only about supermodels, slips, and grunge; as Y2K approached, designers took stock and bid farewell to the century that was filled with revivalist fashion and escapism.


Supergirls


Vogue was as obsessed with the supermodels, and their more waif-like successors, as any other publication. During a magazine interview, Linda Evangelista famously declared that she wouldn’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day. These impossibly beautiful women had famous boyfriends for arm candy and knew how to handle the paparazzi just as well as they could pose for Irving Penn.


Slip Tease


At the same time that Vogue was investigating the “decline of private life” in America, real women were choosing to reveal their bodies. Thanks to Madonna, a deluge of corsets, cone bras, and bustles saw the light of day, and the Wonderbra helped create a knockout display of cleavage; the slip dress also became one of the defining looks of the decade.


Change Agents


In 1994, Cindy Crawford was cast for a Vogue story to announce that the body was back. Science, spas, and surgeons offered ways to achieve those supermodel dimensions. And in the short term, fashion was another way to alter the body, or at least the illusion of it. Jean Paul Gaultier’s tattoo-print shirts and faux body piercings let the curious try on alt culture for size, while Rei Kawakubo’s shocking “lumps and bumps” forced us to “rethink the body.”


The Dressing Down of America


It’s impossible to speak of the 1990s without mentioning grunge, the slept-in, thrifted look that originated in Seattle and was co-opted by fashion in 1992. Grunge fit into a larger trend in fashion, what Vogue called “the dressing down of America.” Skate and rave cultures started to infiltrate the runway, while jeans and khakis began appearing in offices thanks to casual Fridays.


Goodbye to All That, or Fantasy and Nostalgia


As Calvin Klein was embracing “reality” in his street-cast CK One ads, many other designers, including John Galliano, were designing clothing that offered a fantasy. As Y2K loomed on the horizon, the siren call of nostalgia swelled, inspiring some extraordinary updates of past fashions—from the Belle Époch to the bias cut and beyond—and, in Vogue, editorials inspired by a golden age of cinema.Read more at:cheap formal dresses | plus size formal dresses
