By 2003, Friends It was nine seasons in, meaning Rachel Green had been a full-fledged fashion icon for almost a decade. That’s right. Her character was synonymous with everything modern and she was always at the forefront..
Rachel is a worthwhile style inspiration, for sure. But if she needs a fashion hero with a more classic aesthetic (read: one who won’t feel dated after the next big TikTok trends), she’ll consider looking for her real-life counterpart.
Jennifer Aniston’s style is a masterclass in timelessness: minimalism that’s still interesting. One of the best examples of this was shown on March 9, 2003, when Aniston attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards in a stylish LBD that transcends the decades.
Jennifer’s timeless dress
While awards shows are often filled with over-the-top looks, especially from the nominees, Aniston took the opposite, more low-key route.
Nominated for actress in a comedy series, Aniston was the epitome of understated elegance. Instead of going the flashy route, she chose an elegant black Giorgio Armani dress.
With a simple, fitted silhouette, the number evoked the minimalist leanings of the era. What kept it from looking drab, however, were the huge keyhole cutouts that reached almost to Anniston’s navel.
The two-hole front design was also present on the back of the dress, with similar tie details.
Like her dress, her beauty look was also wonderfully simple: a touch of mascara, thin ’90s brows, and just a touch of peach lipstick. Her hair? Also elegant and effortless.

She wasn’t the only one Friends star present that night; After all, the cast was nominated for Supporting Role in a Comedy Series. On the red carpet, Aniston posed with his co-stars, including Courteney Cox, whose ruffled ivory look was Aniston’s polar opposite.
Lisa Kudrow was also present, wearing an eggplant-colored dress that was decidedly not like Phoebe.
The icons of a generation.
