In Character: Nina Sergeevna

Question 1: Are you guys watching The Americans? Question 2: If not, why? Nina Sergeevna—an employee at the Soviet embassy played by the sultry-as-what Annet Mahendru—is one of those supporting characters that sucks you right in. And her wardrobe’s pretty baller, too. —erica

A Band of Outsiders shirtdress down to woo an FBI agent.

A serious, shrunken blazer from The Row that belies that underwear collection of hers.

Ursa Major earrings that take a strange turn—just like her story (BOOM).

In Character: Kimmy Gibbler

image

image

image

She was like the female version of Steve Urkel, this one. Yes, Kimmy managed to annoy the whole Tanner clan—even infant Michelle, I’m willing to wager—but her style was somehow not half as out-there as she was. The essentials below. —erica

image

Girl never met a mock neck she didn’t like—and this take from Christopher Kane is pretty top-notch.

image

A Marc by Marc Jacobs scrunchie—because it was the late eighties/early nineties, guys.

image

A boxy Suno blazer worn to prove to Jesse just how grown-up she was.

More of this! A lot more!

This oversize blazer by Objects Without Meaning is ideal for the star of an eighties rom-com. And that’s obviously intended to be a selling point. —erica

Couple Up: Andre Agassi and Brooke Shields

image

Andre and Brooke were a total curveball—ok, that’s the wrong sport, but you know what I mean. People is better at this than I am: When the two divorced in 1999, the mag titled its story “Double Fault.” Ah, there it is. Here, a look back. —erica

Andre Agassi: Silver hoops from Simon Sebbag, a T by Alexander Wang windbreaker, and a sweat-proof Huf hat.

Brooke Shields: Way-classic Super sunglasses, a polished Blk Dnm blazer, and coordinating silver hoops by Alexis Bittar.

More couples who once were!

Couple Up: Carson Daly and Tara Reid

image

Does anything take you back to the year 2000 faster than hearing the names Tara Reid and Carson Daly? Basically as iconic (and now, in retrospect, as hilarious) as Y2K. Here’s what all that looked like. —erica

Carson Daly: A silver Miansai ring or five, an almost-brown Brooklyn Tailors blazer, and a crisp Seize sur Vingt shirt.

Tara Reid: Glittery pumps from B Brian Atwood, suspendered Brunello Cucinelli pants, and a black Iro bandeau.

More couples who are no more here.

Couple Up: Anne Heche and Ellen DeGeneres

image

Ok, LOOK at these two with their matching sunglasses. Is now the right time to say “I can’t even?” I hope so. —erica

Anne Heche: A wavy A Link necklace, a knit Gentryportofino dress, and a pair of AJ Morgan shades.

Ellen DeGeneres: A black silk shirt from Acne, a super-classic white Rag & Bone blazer, and (coordinating) Elizabeth and James sunglasses.

More cute (former) couples thisaway.

Couple Up: Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston

On-again, off-again for nearly all of the seventies and eighties—so much dramz with these two. And so much good style. Can we get a primetime cable-TV movie about them? Please? —erica

Jack Nicholson: A Rag & Bone knit tie, a cotton-and-linen Billy Reid blazer, and Raen sunglasses.

Anjelica Huston: An easy-breezy Cook & Gates tote, a button-front Shaina Mote dress, and a simple K/LLER necklace.

Couple Up: January Jones and Ashton Kutcher

image

What are these two most remembered for? The fact that he told her she should probably stick to modeling. Oof. But, they were so young! Just look and their toothy smiles, their fresh faces, and their outfits. —erica

January Jones: A fancy little Ben-Amun bobby pin, a jacquard Kenzo dress, and a thin Demylee cardigan.

Ashton Kutcher: A rumpled Save Khaki oxford, a tweed blazer from Steven Alan, and some Yuvi man jewelry.

More duos past their expiration date over here…
