Back in Time1 of 10
By Natasha Burton
All the wine-colored lipstick and slick-straight hair on the fall runways has made us nostalgic for the '90s—and the timing couldn't be better. This month marks the 23-year anniversary of Beverly Hills, 90210's first episode. (Yep, we feel old, too.) See how Brenda, Kelly and the rest of the female cast can inspire your look today. Peach Pit, here we come!
The Dark Side2 of 10
In the '90s, wine, burgundy and even brown lips were the beauty standard, as seen on Shannen Doherty's character Brenda Walsh. Now the look is back after matte, dark berry-hued lips showed up on the runways of Louis Vuitton, Derek Lam, Miu Miu and more. Trade your bright red lipstick for Urban Decay's brick shade—the resulting look is just as bold as red, plus a little edgier.

Punk Up3 of 10
Remember when Emily Valentine went through her tough-gal phase? The same thing is happening on designer runways (catwalkers at Fendi sported colorful punk hairdos). To achieve the look without getting a mohawk, apply volumizing powder to the roots of your hair, then tease your mane at the scalp for added oomph.

Shadow Play4 of 10
The deep purple eyeshadow at MaxMara and Gucci instantly made us think of Tiffani Thiessen's prune-hued peepers. The look, which you can achieve with a rich burgundy shadow, offers a cool alternative to the smoky gray eye.

Fresh Start5 of 10
Minimal makeup ruled Balmain and Chloe's fall runways, and the fresh-faced look also typified the laid-back California beauty on Beverly Hills, 90210. If you're into the barely-there face, skimp on eye makeup and lipstick, opting instead for a tinted sunscreen.

Comb Through6 of 10
Believe it or not, poufy combed-over hair is back, according to models at Versace who sported this distinct '90s style. (Meaning that Donna Martin's exaggerated blond coif would totally fit in today.) Spray a volumizing mousse at your roots at the front of your head, then using a comb, brush upwards to form the coif.

So Cheeky7 of 10
The beachy blush at Ralph Lauren's show was both youthful and playful, much like the flushed pink cheeks those 90210 girls always had. Get their enviable California glow by blending a tinted stain into the apples of your cheeks.

Eyes Have It8 of 10
Put down the tweezers! Thick, well-groomed eyebrows were everywhere this season, from Louis Vuitton's bushy versions to John Galliano's full arches. Looks like the West Beverly Hills High gals got it right back in the '90s.. Comb Benefit's volumizing gel through your brows to re-create their lush, dramatic arches.

Part Ways9 of 10
The models at Marchesa wore deep side parts that echoed Kelly Taylor's signature asymmetric look. To copy the style, get all the weight of your hair on one side and spritz a strong-hold hairspray at the side part to make sure it stays.

White Out10 of 10
Back in the '90s, girls used to paint their nails with Wite-Out in school. Julep's bright white polish is a major upgrade—and a lot safer, since it's toxin-free.
