Can We Take A Moment To Admire Drew Barrymore's '90s Style?

Drew Barrymore is the quintessential child star. Granddaughter to actor John Barrymore, she landed her first advertising gig at 11 months and stole the show in 1982's cult movie, E.T. At 13 years old, she was a regular at Studio 54. By 1990, she had an autobiography under her high-waisted belt. With her cherubic curls and bashful coquettishness (so wonderfully exhibited in 2001's Riding in Cars with Boys), our long, deep, burning desire to be her best friend was lit. And with her artillery of dungarees, crucifix necklaces, knotted grungy plaid shirts, and battered leather jackets, it was no surprise that she earned some serious fashion chops with campaigns for Guess and Miu Miu. Google it, it's freaking epic.

To put it simply: Drew Barrymore was a paradigm for '90s grunge style and she's one of our ultimate #TBT fashion icons. Click ahead to see why.

Thelma and Louise sunglasses, Levi's, and an old-school blazer. We will never, in our short, meaningless lives, look this cool.

Yes, the denim with XL white stitching is covetable and the glasses Bono-worthy, but the Mickey Mouse backpack takes the cake.

Scruffy as anything in a crumpled white tee, huge hoop earrings, and emerald denim. Not sure why, but the key chain makes us love her even more.

The rose and polka-dot print shirt and hair bandana = perfection.

The babydoll dress era was quite something. Note how Drew throws the whole thing off with some blackberry lipstick.

The blazer and denim shorts are gloriously simple. Then, your eyes meet the shoes. Chloë Sevigny, who?
