Top Thirteen 90s Teen Starlets Who Stayed Hot

The 90s were a time where all TV shows were about teenage relationships, the popular kids liked music that the guys only pretended to like so they could dance close with the girls they wanted to bang and teenagers were exploited weirdly in the media for their sexuality. Everything was COMPLETELY different... But some of the hottest teen stars of the 1990s (most of them) have by now either hit rock bottom or completely fallen off the face of the earth, waiting to become the next E! True Hollywood story that's more interesting than anything they've ever made intentionally.

So, in all their hot 90s glory, here are the hot teen starlets from the 90s who actually not only stayed hot, but have continued to have a modicum of success.

    The 90s:
    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.

    The 90s:
    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.

    The 90s:
    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.

    The 90s:
    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 
    about... Age: 41
    Birthplace: Long Beach, California, United States of America
    Profession: Entrepreneur, Actor
    Institution: Cubberley Elementary School, Marshall Junior High School
    Height: 5'5"

    The 90s:
    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.
    about... Age: 43
    Birthplace: Farmington Hills, Michigan, United States of America
    Profession: Actor
    Institution: University of California, Los Angeles, Cranbrook Schools, North Farmington High School
    Height: 5'10"

    The 90s:
    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.

    Profession: Spokesperson, Actor, Voice acting
    Institution: Glenfield Middle School, Morristown-Beard School, Edgemont Elementary School, Montclair High School, Professional Children's School
