Celebrity Airport Style Was Even Better In The '90s

Take me back.

Airport style has become a fine art in today's celebrity culture. Before everyone consulted their stylist before heading out to LAX, the stars were left to their own devices, and the results were good. Everyone from Jennifer Lopez to the Spice Girls had their airport style on lock back in the '90s. Here's the proof.
