If you're here, you know exactly who Jessica Alba is and that it doesn't really matter what she's done. Scientists should study Jessica Alba. If I were president, I would order an army of Jessica Alba clones to be created. This would be our new military. WHO WOULD KILL HER? WHO?
Exactly. Check mate, terrorism.
I know. I need to explain this.
And when people thought Britney Spears they didn't think "train wreck" yet, but they wrote something along the lines of ughghasdhga;lskfhfghgh she's hot? Well I do. She's easily the hottest girl of the time. Everyone else on this list was very straightforward-hot. Britney Spears had a weird allure to her. Something that made her seem like she was innocent with a lot to hide. The perfect girl next door.
Yeah yeah, she had the whole bald incident and she's not as absolutely slim as she used to be (after three kids), but she still is adorable, looks amazing, and has the best music career to speak of out of anybody who was part of the boy bands craze. Name a single recording artist that has maintained their staying power from that fad/era that's as iconic and well-loved as Britney Spears. Exactly.
Also, she does things like this:
SHE WAS IN JACKASS 3-D.And yeah, some say it's fake, but even if it is, this means she wanted people to believe she'd been covered in human feces from head to toe. And that's awesome. A girl who's willing to go this far for a laugh is hot as hell in my book.
That's when you know you're in trouble.
And that's my case, your honor.
After she caught her break as the really hot girl from 90s Aerosmith videos and as "Cher" from the hit movie Clueless that showed me, and all of us, that girls that say big words are hot, Alicia Silverstone really didn't need to do much more acting.
But when she was the Aerosmith girl, any grunge-loving, MTV-watching dude stopped everything he was doing to watch the video playing. She did the Aerosmith videos most notably for the songs Crazy and Crying. The craziest part of the Aerosmith video for the song Crazy is when that 90s cashier/clerk lets Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone steal whatever they want from the entire store and what Liv Tyler decides to steal is a f*cking loaf of bread.
She also played Batgirl in what is arguably the worst movie ever made Batman & Robin. Arguably. At least she looked adorable as a superhero.
She later got into voice acting, TV movies and hardcore animal rights activism. But she'll always be the Aerosmith girl or Cher to all of us, so here are her hottest pictures.
Yeah, good times... *sigh*
Jennifer Love Hewitt ruled being hot in the movies during the late 90s. She earns the top spot for not only being one of the hottest chicks around in the 90s, and for her extremely prolific popularity in the 90s, but she ears the spot for somehow not only not falling off the face of the earth at some point like almost every woman on this list.
There were few other moments that put hair on your chest as a teenager in the 90s. That was just. That ruled. That and Wild Things, but those chicks are too old to be on this list.
She went on to star in The Ghost Whisperer that inexplicably lasted 5 years and continues to age gracefully at the age of 33. She doesn't look a day older than she did when she touched all our hearts and pants when she was 18: Jennifer Love Hewitt now, in black lace lingerie.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, aka, one of the greatest heroines in the history of fiction, aka the hottest monster-killer ever concocted, aka Sarah Michelle Gellar (who also kissed Selma Blair in that one movie for like a whole minute) started out Buffy as a teenager, playing a cheerleader with superpowers.
She was also in I Know What You Did Last Summer and She's All That, always playing a memorably hot girl who nobody seems to care about in the movie.
She has aged AMAZINGLY. Finishing out all seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the 2000s did her well. And then she fell of the face of the earth. Then she filled up the time she didn't spend making direct to DVD movies being in awesome movies like Southland Tales and doing guest spots on The Simpsons, Robot Chicken and more.
She was then in The Grudge, where a weird cat looking Japenese kid scared the hell out of all of us for some reason and is currently starring in her very own show Ringer (which is doing surprisingly well).
Alyson Hannigan is one of the few MILFs on this list and definitely earns her keep as a hot girl on here. She's the kinky/sexy band geek from the American Pie movies when people still thought stuff like that was funny, and the all-powerful witch Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
She's not just the hot, adorably cute/dorky girl from bandcamp, but she actually cleaned up pretty well too.
So needless to say, she not only still looks good, but has actually filled out a little so that she's just the right amount of woman.
For how hot Christina Applegate was in The 90s see above.
She was easily one of the hottest girls on TV starring as Kelly Bundy, daughter of Al Bundy, main character of Married with Children. And if the internet had existed, there would've been Kelly Bundy vs. Kelly Kapowski shirts drawn up and there would be gang wars on the streets and the world would be a desolate wasteland.
I mean look at her.
Since the 90s, Christina Applegate has established herself as one of the funniest women in entertainment and has starred in such great properties as Anchorman, Samantha Who and the funniest new show of the 2011 Fall TV season, Up All Night.
You know her as Wednesday Adams from The Adams Family, the hot chained-up girl from Black Snake Moan or the fun, hot, down-to-earth, accessibly hot girl from a bunch of movies in the 90s including Casper, that movie where the beloved iconic TV cartoon ghost becomes Devon Sawa.
Growing up being a little younger than her was weird because she started getting really cute as soon as she turned 18 and did Buffalo 66, The Opposite of Sex and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It's like someone turned on a switch.
She does a bunch of weird indie movies like Black Snake Moan, Pumpkin, Curse and other movies I've only seen "the right" clips of around the internet. And she's maintained not only her awesomeness, but her girl-next-door appeal, as well as her body seems to get nicer every single year.
Also, she's on this list because no matter what, she looks unbelievable, no, really, unbelievable in a bikini.
The other Saved By the Bell alum on this list, Elizabeth Berkley played Jesse Spano, the militant feminist who falls for the biggest misogynist in school showing women once and for all that no matter what, a dude's abs are more important than her ideals.
She was actually really cute back in the day, but you probably remember her character best from one of the worst "very special episodes" in television history. The one where Jesse gets addicted to caffeine pills.
In arguably one of the most ironic career turns in Hollywood history, Elizabeth Berkley went from playing uber-feminist Jessie Spano in Saved By the Bell, to playing the lead in arguably the most popular NC-17 movie ever released, "Showgirls."
Fun fact: the role of Kelly Kapowski was originally going to be given to Elizabeth Berkley, but was later given to Tiffany Amber Thiessen. The role of Jessie Spano was, then, created specifically for Berkley.
She's now a mid-level celebrity hoping that everyone will forget the things that they know her for and she has much better hair.
Tiffani Thiessen is Kelly Kapowski. Anyone growing up in the 90s was plagued with dreams of her and also had a creepy replica of Zach from Saved By the Bell's door-sized poster of her. How much he worshipped her was only matched by how horribly much every straight man and bicurious woman on earth just wanted to be around her.
She not only looks just as good, but she's older, more mature, and willing to bare it all. And spends time making Funny or Die videos where she hangs around in her bikini
Melissa Joan Hart, better known as Clarissa from Clarissa Explains It All or Sabrina from Sabrina the Teenage Witch or all those other shows where she either has her real name or the show is named after her character.Just some cute, legal, teenage girl who always plays some girl that happens to know more than everyone around her.
She's always been kind of cute, and borderline thick, but she's also always played a character that I wanted to see the douchebag lead get together with, vicariously.
So she actually grew into herself. Here's a good picture of what she looks like now that she's gotten a lot of ABC Family work as Sabrina (for a while still... I know) and now she's currently on the abortion new show where she stars with Joey Lawrence called, wait for it, Melissa and Joey.
And while Nickelodeon and ABC Family have taught her that the laugh track can do all the work, she remains getting the same kinds of roles cause she's just that damn charming.
You might know Monica Keena as that girl who was blonde in Dawson's Creek in the 90s. She's the one who was often ignored, but always cute and always made the scenes that much more interesting to sit through when a bunch of girls would invite you over to watch the show and you thought you were going to get somewhere with at least two of them but they ended up braiding your hair only teaching you that low expectations are the way to go... woah. That got dark for a second there.
She's the girl Colin Hanks was trying to bone in Orange County as well.
She looks basically the same, only slightly older and willing to do a lot more. From Freddy vs. Jason, to Undeclared, Bad Girls from Valley High and Entourage, she carries her weight in hotness in the new millenium, showing us all that age IS beauty.
Personally, I was a Ginger Spice (Geri Halliwell) guy. But back in the day all of the Spice Girls were hot to somebody. And the video above was their hottest.
But somehow, almost all of them aged better than they used to look, except for Victoria Beckham, who still looks hot, but more like a hot wax statue of the Posh Spice we all grew up loving and glaring at on non-flat screens.
