It’s true, Jennifer Aniston has always been more known for her hair than her clothes. Since her days as Rachel on Friends, her hair has taken centerstage, and almost three decades later, people are still going to the salon and asking for “The Rachel.” But let’s not diminish the actress’ style, because though we may have always been more focused on her ‘do, Aniston’s red carpet looks should be considered as well. The actress is the face of chic simplicity. She figured out her personal style fairly early in her career—muted colors, simple silhouettes, with one element to keep things interesting— and since then, she has had few, if any, style slip-ups. No, she’s not going to show up in the most exciting dress of the night, but she’s always going to look good. Aniston loves a LBD to show off her long legs almost as she loves a vintage piece, and it’s because of all of this that her style remains timeless. There are dresses she wore in 2000 thay could easily walk a red carpet today, and that’s not just because Y2K style is back. Don’t believe us? Take a scroll through the actress’ best red carpet moments over the past 30 years and you’ll see what we mean.
