Liv Tyler was the Mas­ter of the Midriff.

Give this woman a plaid skirt and cut-off mohair jumper, and she’ll have teens cut­ting up with school uni­forms quicker than you can say “Rex Man­ning Day”. She has the kind of ethe­real beauty that makes her seem like an alien (or an elf. Huh, huh?), but seems down-to-earth enough to be your best buddy.

She epit­o­mised all the best things about ‘90s style – flow­ing flo­ral dresses, mini mini-skirts and heavy boots – and appeared in some of the coolest movies of the decade.

She also made look­ing deathly pale slightly more acceptable.
