Selena Gomez Recreated An Outfit Jennifer Aniston Wore In 1996


Selena Gomez is fast becoming a serious fashion icon. From her red carpet looks to her off duty style, the singer has become known for her easygoing take on classic pieces. Now, her repertoire has extended into honouring ‘90s icons — more specifically, Jennifer Aniston.

Channeling the Friends star with her latest look, Gomez stepped out wearing a classic late nineties looks, pairing a white T-shirt underneath a black jumpsuit and accessorising with a backwards cap and oval sunglasses. The cherry on top? Gomez’s hair, which was worn in two braids.

The look was quickly compared to Aniston, who also wore a white T-shirt layered under a black dress, a backwards baseball cap, pigtails and oval sunglasses — albeit in 1996.

While we can’t be certain if Gomez was looking to Aniston for inspiration, we can be sure the pair are virtually twins, just 20 years later.

It’s not uncommon for a celebrity to pay homage to their favourite star, with a slew of recent examples proving that yes, what goes around comes around — most notably exemplified by Kim Kardashian West who doesn’t turn down the opportunity to channel Naomi Campbell. From vintage Versace and Azzedine Alaïa to more current silhouettes, Kardashian West is a bona fide fan of copying her early style. Kendall Jenner has also famously channelled Paris Hilton, wearing a version of Hilton’s sparkly mini dress to her own 21st birthday, to which Hilton responded “I was really flattered”.

Intentional or not, we’re loving the ‘90s look, Selena.
