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

Annika Harris | January 13, 2010 - 6:30 pm

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.
