Proof Alexis Bledel Was A Lip Gloss-Loving '90s Girl Just Like Us (PHOTOS)

It's not Thursday yet, but here's a #TBT to when our favorite Gilmore Girl modeled the best of the '90s!

Several actors and actresses begin their careers as models, but we recently dug up these photos of a more youthful Alexis Bledel. Preceding her television debut, the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" star spent her young teenage years in front of a camera modeling various lines of lip gloss and hair accessories. Alexis allegedly spent middle school and high school traveling for these commercial shoots, right before landing her starring role in "Gilmore Girls" at age 19.

Although she's on to bigger and better things -- like covers for Seventeen and Cosmo, not to mention her "Mad Men" role -- we still think she rocks this classic '90s trend. With her candy flavored lip balm and hair scrunchie, the only item missing from a completed '90s look is a leopard slap bracelet... and a mood ring, obviously.
