It's Winona Ryder's birthday today! She's 42 years old today, and ever since we were old enough to watch television and read NWs, we've followed Wino through – in the inimitable words of Fatboy Slim - the "good times, and the bad" and so here, "we celebrate you baby, celebrate you like we should".
Winona Ryder entered our collective nostalgic consciousness through films like Reality Bites and Mermaids, and made us feel secure in our weirdness – and also confirmed that any kind of fringe can look good on the right person – through films like Girl, Interrupted, Edward Scissorhands and Bettlejuice.
She also had some of the most inimitable on and off screen romances known to Hollywood. Johnny Depp? Yes. Ethan Hawke? Yes. Jared Leto (pre 30 Seconds to Mars)? Yes. There were also those times she dated Matt Damon – and became BFFS with Gwyneth Paltrow, who probably does not endorse Kleptomania on Goop - and Bille Joe Armstrong from Green Day.
Sure – just like everybody else – she's had her bad days, but what's a little clothes-theft when you look this good in them! And anyway, she's past all that and onto bigger (and more legal) things, like being the star of Rag and Bone's latest advertising campaign.
Here are our fashion director Elle Packham's favourite Winona Ryder fashion moments. The consensus? Wino forever, basically.
