Phones and times may have changed but there is one thing that still stands- our approval ratings (yes, it’s that serious) on Rachel Green’s style. We were introduced to Rachel’s spoiled yet endearing character when she runs from the altar to New York City to meet Monica Geller, her friend from Lincoln High, because she was more turned on by a gravy boat than her fiancé, Barry. From the classic ‘Rachel’ look to the side pony, fringe, braid, to the one we were not quite sure how to recreate, Rachel Green won our hearts quite literally with her rendition of “I like big butts, and I cannot lie” to her sweeping declaration of love when she says “I got off the plane” in the final season.
A new YouGov poll even ranked Rachel Green as the most attractive Friends’ character with 50 percent of the vote and also its most dateable character. Well, while we are counting votes, 61% of adults who watched Friends even said Ross and Rachel were really on a break.
