'Boy Meets World' Star Danielle 'Topanga' Fishel And Her '90s Style (PHOTO)

Although the name Danielle Fishel might not ring any bells, Topanga Lawrence sure will. The Arizona-born actress got her start at a young age doing voiceovers and commercials for companies like Mattel. After guest appearances on shows like "Full House" and "Harry and the Hendersons" she landed the role of her career on the hit '90s sitcom "Boy Meets World." Cast as Topanga (arguably one of the most famous TV names in history), Fishel rose to fame for her big brains, silky hair and killer figure. The show, which ended in 2000, has recently announced a spin-off, "Girl Meets World," starring some of the original characters, including Danielle ('90s kids rejoice!).

In this 1999 photo we see Danielle with her "Boy Meets World" co-star Ben Savage (aka Cory Matthews) looking like the ever-perfect '90s couple (the duo dated both on and off screen). Although Ben's outfit could be easily translated into the 21st century, Miss Fishel's ensemble is a different story. Her chunky platform sandals, cropped sweater, anklet and toe ring scream 1999 but the pencil skirt with a tucked-in top is a flattering silhouette that could be worn today (the proportions of this look really play up her hourglass figure). As for the hair, we're not sure it ever really worked. Are you planning on taking any tips from Topanga?
