At Golden Globes 2024, Jennifer Aniston updates ‘The Rachel’ cut

Golden Globes 2024 kicked off the start of awards season which is a time for making a statement. Whether through a wholly revamped look

or, in Jennifer Aniston’s case, a modernized nod to an iconic style past, beauty is an important one to play with.

The actor stole the spotlight on the Golden Globes 2024 red carpet with a new layered chop that immediately called to mind ‘The Rachel,’ a late-90s cut whose influence can be found in the current beauty landscape.

To pull the cut into the present tense (and honor her own aesthetic evolution), Aniston eschewed ultra-abbreviated snips in favor of long, piecey layers that fell flatteringly around the face before spilling over shoulders. Though still marked by a deep side part, the evening’s interpretation was more sleek and chic than round and bouncy, the sophisticated shag paired with a beaded black dress, sun-kissed skin, and a burgundy manicure. The result was more clever ode than full-on throwback—still, ‘The Rachel’ 2.0 is bound to inspire its share of copy-cats.
