Olivia Holt and Chiara Aurelia, the stars of Freeform’s hit series “Cruel Summer,” recently played a game of “90s This or That” with Nylon magazine. The game tested the actresses’ knowledge of ’90s culture and revealed their personal preferences for some iconic ’90s trends.
The game started with a question about the denim-on-denim trend. While both Holt and Aurelia agreed that the trend should never make a comeback, Holt was quick to clarify that she still loves to wear denim jackets.
When asked to choose between jelly sandals and platform sneakers, Holt chose the latter, while Aurelia favored the former. Holt also expressed her love for tamagotchis, while Aurelia preferred Furby toys.
The actresses were also asked to choose between ’90s boy bands NSYNC and Backstreet Boys. While both were fans of both bands, Holt ultimately chose NSYNC, citing her love for Justin Timberlake. Aurelia went with Backstreet Boys, revealing that one of her friends is currently touring with them.
The game also covered ’90s fashion staples such as chokers, butterfly clips, and Dr. Martens boots. Both actresses were in agreement that chokers are a timeless accessory and expressed their appreciation for the resurgence of the trend in recent years. Aurelia also shared that she still has a collection of butterfly clips in her bathroom.
The game ended with a question about ’90s movies, specifically choosing between the classics “Clueless” and “10 Things I Hate About You.” While Holt stated that she loves both movies, she ultimately chose “Clueless,” citing Cher’s iconic fashion sense, while Aurelia chose “10 Things I Hate About You” for its relatable high school storyline.
Overall, the game showed these young actresses’ love and appreciation for ’90s culture and how the decade continues to influence fashion and pop culture today. As “Cruel Summer” takes place in the ’90s, it’s clear that Holt and Aurelia have fully embraced the time period and have a deep connection to the era’s iconic trends and moments.
