When it comes to A-list celebrities, few of the elite members of Hollywood have reached a level of super-stardom like Jennifer Aniston. Recently dubbed the “Sexiest Woman of All Time” by Men’s Health magazine, the starlet joins the ranks of Marilyn Monroe and Raquel Welch. Whether you love Ms. Aniston or you’re team Jolie-Pitt, it’s hard to deny that she made a huge impact by playing Rachel Green on Friends.

There are few female television characters who have spawned such fashion followings as Rachel Green on the hit show Friends. Rachel had a sense of practicality and effortlessness in the way that she dressed; Rachel’s style was easy, chic and totally possible to recreate. Fans of the show fell in love with Rachel (and Jennifer Aniston) because she was, and still is, the ultimate girl next door.

The Style of Rachel Green

Hair: Perhaps the most iconic of Rachel’s style moments is her haircut. Throughout the first few seasons of Friends, fans of the show flocked to their nearest hair salon to try to emulate the star’s haircut, which was affectionately and appropriately dubbed “The Rachel” and became one of the most popular haircuts of all time.

Sundresses: Another Rachel classic is the spaghetti strap sundress. Made popular in the 90s, Rachel kept the look going and made it appear timeless rather than outdated. For a woman who maintained an impressive career in the fashion industry throughout the latter half of the show, she sure knew how to keep it simple. The trick was (and still is) to stick to what works for you instead of trying out every new trends each season.
