The Inspiration Board: Emily Valentine Of “Beverly Hills, 90210″

Everyone took notice as soon as Emily Valentine, played by Christine Elise, showed up in the ’90s’ hottest zip code. She had that short haircut that didn’t require color touch-ups and a too-cool-for-Beverly-Hills-B.S. attitude that was the perfect balance to Brandon Walsh’s goody-two-shoes act. So what if she slipped Brandon some u4ea/euphoria? He needed to loosen up anyway. Her style was a welcomed departure from the babydoll dresses and floppy hats the other “90210” girls rocked. And since grunge is back in a major way right now, we’re happy to take a few fashion cues from Emily.
