Winona Ryder Beauty Movie Moments We'll Never, Ever Forget
In summer's smash hit Stranger Things, Winona Ryder plays Joyce Byers—the distressed mom desperately trying to find her son, Will. But before she starred in a Netflix show set in the '80s, she was a megastar during that decade IRL and beyond. Not to mention, a serious beauty inspiration.
Basically Ryder starred in all the classics, and had flawless fashion and beauty breakout moments along the way, ranging from Beetlejuice to Little Women.
Let's time travel and relive Ryder's best movie beauty looks from the '80s and '90s, shall we? She was practically a chameleon and could adapt to any style with ease, as you'll see if you keep on clicking!
In this 1990 Johnny Depp flick, she plays his love interest (a role she took on IRL—the pair dated until 1993). Her character Kim has the best strawberry blonde hair. And those bangs? Perfection.
She also wears the prettiest pale pink lipstick. Girl's got style.
Ryder's Veronica is a classic beauty, even before joining the Heathers' popular crew. Sure, she's homicidal by the end of this 1988 dark comedy, but let's focus on the positives. Like her red lipstick.
Also, that lob haircut! The curls are effortlessly tousled. Veronica may not be a good person, but she does have good hair.
In this 1988 movie, Ryder's character Lydia is all about pointy micro-bangs. This shows she can absolutely pull off the goth look.
And do you see her spooky hair's volume? Halloween inspo, for sure
Aside from the yellow dress that you'll want in your closet ASAP, her hair here is low-key, natural, and pretty. The same adjectives apply to her makeup.
If you're looking for pixie cut inspiration, look no further than Ryder's 1999 character Susanna.
The Age of Innocence
Classy is an understatement. May Welland's elegant looks in this movie are gorgeous—especially the flowers in her hair.
The Age of Innocence
Ryder won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress and snagged an Oscar nomination for her role. Another fun fact: This 1993 movie won the Oscar for Best Costume Design. It's no surprise why.
Now when you re-watch Stranger Things (hey, you have to find a way to pass the time until Season 2), you'll have a newfound respect for Ryder and her style. All hail this beauty queen.
