Buffy slayed more than vampires

Carrie Bradshaw. Olivia Pope. Blair Waldorf. Angela Chase. Betty Draper. And now add Buffy the Vampire Slayer. These characters donned fashions so unforgettable, and created aesthetics so bold, that people were (and are still) compelled to mimic them. Be it their hair, makeup, or outfits, these characters each had major impacts on how we remember fashion, with some of them becoming legitimate players in the IRL game. But unlike Sarah Jessica Parker, Sarah Michelle Gellar (of Buffy fame) often goes unrecognized for her diversity in style, fashion know-how, and normcore prowess.

Buffy looks good doing just about everything. She looks good breaking up with her boyfriend(s). She looks good saving the world from hell gods. She looks good for the prom. She looks good as a freshman. She looks good stomping the patriarchy. And, you know, she looks good fighting vampires.

Her unforgettable wardrobe is something worth immeasurable amounts of love and remembrance. In these days of ‘90s nostalgia, Buffy is the style icon we all need but don’t deserve. It’s really hard to pick just ten looks from seven seasons of the best show on television ever, but this list promised ten outfits, so ten outfits you shall get.

 Here are the ones that stood above the rest (in terms of ‘90s power, that is…).

Seasoned pop stars Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift are naturally leading this year's nomination pool with 10 nods each, and going head-to-head in multiple categories, including Video and Song of the Year. Billie Eilish, who isn't as seasoned but has built up a sturdy (and beloved) body of work, is right behind with nine nominations this year.
