Happy 39th Birthday, Rachel McAdams: A Look Back at ‘Mean Girls’ Style

It’s been 13 years since “Mean Girls” debuted but the styles from the movie are still a hit. As Rachel McAdams celebrates her 39th birthday today, on Nov. 17, we look back at the shoes the actress and her castmates wore when she was only 25 years old in the role of queen bee Regina George.
Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried star in “Mean Girls.”
McAdams stars in the coming of age comedy alongside Lindsay Lohan (Cadey Heron), Lacey Chabert (Gretchen Wieners) and Amanda Seyfried (Karen Smith), who are known as the coolest clique in high school. Of course, the coolest clique must only wear the coolest clothes. Though the fashion trends were different back in 2004 than today, but some similarities remain.
Let’s start with Gretchen’s decision to wear platform flip-flops featuring blue floral embellishments with her retro miniskirt and coral cardigan during an after-school scene. While the shoe is not necessarily a popular style today, Wieners may have been well ahead of her time with her comfy fashion flip flops. Just last month, Balenciaga got in on the luxury comfort idea by sending sky-high crocs down the runway during its spring ’18 runway show in Paris.
