Liv Tyler’s Best ‘90s Fashion Moments

The ultimate Hollywood sweetheart of the decade.

Originally Published: 

The ‘90s wouldn’t be anything without Liv Tyler and her best fashion moments. After switching over to acting from modeling at just 14 years old, she quickly became Hollywood’s ultimate sweetheart. During Tyler’s reign during the decade, she was best known for her roles (and coveted style) in some of the many smash-hit films, like Empire Records (1994), Stealing Beauty (1996), and Armageddon (1998). Plus, as the daughter of rock legend Steven Tyler, she also made an appearance in Aerosmith’s “Crazy” music video back in 1994, which still remains one of the biggest videos of the decade.

But Tyler wasn’t just known for her on-screen appearances, she also made plenty of major fashion moments over the years, and her ‘90s-era aesthetic is still an inspiration today. Often seen in a black ensemble and red lip, Tyler’s style was minimal yet still made a statement, mainly sticking to neutral tones and the occasional pop of color or eye-catching accessory on the red carpet.

Ahead, walk through some of our favorite outfits from Liv Tyler’s ‘90s style and fashion moments.
