It was February of 2006. Seth Cohen and Summer Roberts (and I) were gearing up to graduate high school while the actors who played them lived out one of the best celebrity romances of our time. Nicole Richie and Rachel Zoe were best friends (and the latter still a celebrity stylist). Winona Ryder had yet to portray a mom. Sofia Coppola had long hair. Instagram did not exist, which means no Instagirls (Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were both 10 years old) nor Insta-bait. All designers showed fall in February and spring in September. Marc Jacobs looked like this.
