The 20 Hottest Women Of The 90’s

We here at Top Socialite recently saw a list of the hottest women of the 80’s, and while we found it interesting it didn’t really hit home, because we really grew up in the 90’s. Sure we were alive in the 80’s, so we get the Shannon Tweed references, but our teenage years came a decade later.

So we decided to come up with our own list, the hottest women of the 90’s. Since the last year of that decade was less than ten years ago, we thought it would be a good idea to mostly pick women who you’d recognize as being of the 90’s. So you’re not going to find say a Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera, because those women are of this decade just as much as they were of the 90’s. Not a hard and fast rule as you’ll find many of the women on this list are still working today, but in the end everyone we selected was someone we thought of as a 90’s personality, regardless of whether or not they are making B movies or crappy TV shows still today. Onto the list:

20: Carmen Electra

Best Known For: Baywatch (97-98), MTV’s Singled Out, numerous Playboy layouts

On the list because: She has uh … impressive measurements. Sure she’s more plastic than a Visa card, but that was a trend in the 90’s. The plastic surgery just wasn’t all that tasteful yet. But in the end she’s a Baywatch alum and managed to fill some pretty big shoes in her stint as host of MTV’s Singled Out which is enough to get her onto our list.

19: Shannon Doherty

Best Known For: Being the “bitchy one” on Beverly Hills, 90210

On the list because: There were few actresses as big as Shannon Doherty in the early 90’s. She was kind of the Lindsay Lohan/Paris Hilton/Britney Spears of the day, racking up DUI’s, passing bad checks, and fighting with co-stars constantly. She was actually really intimidating and more than a little scary, but still really hot.

18: Marisa Tomei

Best Known For: My Cousin Vinny, a pretty shocking Oscar win, and a hilarious appearance on Seinfeld.

On the list because: She was good enough to make George Costonza want to leave his fiancee, that is a pretty good indication of hotness. Kind of. I guess George kind of hated Susan …

17: Cindy Crawford

Best Known For: Being the biggest supermodel in the world in the 90’s.

On the list because: She was absolutely everywhere in the early to mid 90’s, and it wasn’t because of her acting ability.

16: Winona Ryder

Best Known For: Dating Jonny Depp in the early 90’s. No, seriously. There was also that shoplifting thing.

On the list because: She’s incredibly underrated when it comes to her looks. It seems like people have only recently started noticing the cleavage, but it’s been there all along.

15: Kathy Ireland

Best Known For: SI’s swimsuit edition

On the list because: Back in the prehistoric times, when there was no internet, the SI swimsuit edition was sometimes the best thing out there when it came to soft core porn. And Kathy Ireland was usually the best thing in it.

14: Shannon Elizabeth

Best Known For: A surprising nude scene in American Pie.

On the list because of: A surprising nude scene in American Pie. Her career pretty much began and ended with that movie (and that scene), but that was enough for her to make this list.

13: Claudia Schiffer

Best Known For: Being a massively well known supermodel, beginning as a Guess Jeans girl back in the early 90’s. Guess Jeans really went to hell didn’t they? I guess that’s what happens when you go from having Claudia Schiffer endorse your product to Anna Nicole Smith.

On the list because: Everyone has a thing for tall blonde German chicks. That’s not me talking, that’s science.

12: Laetitia Casta

Best Known For: Victoria’s Secret modeling

On the list because: I spoke earlier about the SI swimsuit edition, but on better pre-internet days you’d sometimes come across a Victoria’s Secret catalog, where Laetitia always looked stunning. Also made appearances in SI’s swimsuit edition though, and those were also pretty amazing.

11: Shania Twain

Best Known For: Selling an assload of country/pop records in the 90’s. On the list because: We can’t stand her music, but her videos were always pretty good eye candy.

10: Heather Graham

Best Known For: A career making performance as Rollergirl in Boogie Nights.

On the list because: She never took her skates off.

9: Christina Applegate

Best Known For: Her role as Kelly Bundy on one of the greatest shows in the history of television, Married … With Children.

On the list because: Trashiness has it’s appeal, and there wasn’t much trashier on TV in the 90’s than Christina Applegate as Kelly Bundy.

8: Sarah Michelle Gellar

Best Known For: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and many film appearances

On the list because: Gellar still works quite a bit, but to us she peaked in 1999’s Cruel Intentions where she made out with Selma Blair. Yeah, you know what we’re talking about.

7: Liz Phair

Best Known For: Being an indie rock queen in the 90’s.

On the list because: She’s the cutest thing ever. Phair has actually had more commercial success in this decade, but to us she’s intrinsically a part of the 90’s.

6: Heather Locklear

Best Known For: Her role as Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place

On the list because: She was the epitome of the California hottie. Just check out the blonde hair and blue eyes.

5: Jennifer Love Hewitt

Best Known For: Lots of crappy teen movies like I Know What You Did Last Summer, as well as her role on Party of Five

On the list because: Really, in the late 90’s were there many women you wanted to see naked more than Jennifer Love Hewitt?

4: Tiffany Amber Thiessen

Best Known For: Moving from her role as the sweet and innocent Kelly on Saved By The Bell to playing a total slut on Beverly Hills 90210.

On the list because: Everyone wanted to date Kelly Kapowski.

3: Alicia Silverstone

Best Known For: Her role as Cher in Clueless, falling off the face of the planet quicker than any other big name actor or actress. Until her recent PETA ad anyway.

On the list because: Ok, sure she seemed totally brainless in Clueless, but it was pretty endearing at the same time.

2: Gillian Anderson

Best Known For: Her role as Dana Scully in The X-Files.

On the list because: Dana Scully was one of the smarter female roles in television back in the 90’s, and intelligence is hot. Plus we here at Top Socialite have a thing for red heads.

1: Jenny McCarthy

Best Known For: Playboy appearances, host of MTV’s Singled Out

On the list because: She actually seemed like she’d be pretty fun to hang out with. One of the guys. If one of the guys had enormous breasts and blindingly blonde hair.
