Neve Campbell’s first red carpet outfit is a 90s parody
In the 90s and 2000s, the reigning scream queen was neve campbell and as an icon of the era, the actress set the tone when it came to red carpet styles. However, even her status as a style icon and sex symbol couldn’t grant her immunity from the occasional fashion faux pas. In fact, one of Campbell’s first red carpet walks, which featured other Yell Star Courtney Coxwas quite a miss for the two leading ladies.
When it comes to style icons, Neve Campbell doesn’t get as much recognition as she deserves for her contribution to fashion in the 90s and 2000s. Campbell was the “It Girl” of the era and continues to impress every time she walks the red carpet even today.
Now that fashion from that era is enjoying a resurgence in popularity (thanks in large part to the TikTok crowd), there’s no better time than the present to look back at your best and worst looks from that era. Several popular recent trends can be traced to Campbell’s red carpet looks, though we’re glad some of them haven’t made a comeback.
I like the hair, I hate the dress
Nothing about this dress is a winner for us, although in favor of Campbell, we really appreciate the haircut she had for the 2007 Film Independent Spirit Awards. The rocker-pixie cut accentuates her cheekbones and makes her darling face look bolder than usual. Unfortunately, the filthy circus tent that Campbell calls a dress takes center stage. Its indeterminate color, shapeless nature, and multiple ruffles do nothing to benefit Campbell’s marvelous figure. Seriously, what color is it? Wash?
Floor cardigan, a girl’s best friend
We’re waiting for the day when handkerchief t-shirts like the one Campbell is wearing in this 2002 photo make a comeback in a meaningful way. Our favorite part, hands down, is Campbell’s floor-sweeping cardigan. It adds a touch of drama to the otherwise casual ensemble.
Something is wrong
It pains us to admit that this wasn’t one of Campbell’s best looks. While we love the idea of this outfit, something about the execution just doesn’t pan out. Campbell looks great in the suit, and we love the midriff-baring space at the bottom of her jacket, but we just can’t get past the fabric. Looks like someone grabbed a quilt off Grandma’s bed and threw a suit together.
Gotta love a classic midi dress
Maxi dresses were all the rage from 2010 and onwards, but midi dresses are seeing their day in the sun again. Campbell can proudly claim to be the creator of this particular trend after wearing a gray jersey midi dress to the 1999 premiere Eyes wide closed. We’re also a big fan of her hair in this pic, which kind of resembles the prototype of last year’s “it” haircut, the wolf cut.
Finally, we came to one of Neve Campbell’s first red carpet photos, in which she poses alongside him Yell co-starring Courteney Cox. Both ladies sport crimson streaks in their normally dark coffee-colored locks, but it’s actually the least eye-catching part of their looks. Cox’s hair might say “punk rock,” but his outfit and wispy jacket scream “prom night.” It’s a weird combination of alternative and classic that doesn’t quite work for us.
Then there’s Campbell’s outfit. Up top, she wears a sheer red corset that leaves her black bra almost entirely exposed. As we try to figure this out, we’re struck by Campbell’s leopard print maxi skirt and matching heels. We’d like to comment further, but the look on his face pretty much sums it up.
