A great Friends-inspired haircut is the perfect balance between chic and trendsetting, so it's no wonder that year on they still get us excited.

Back in September, Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston's long-time hairstylist, Chris McMillan, posted a picture on Instagram of Courteney's new 'shaggy bangs', and it's fair to say we all lost it a little bit (mainly because she channelled her old character, Monica).

Then there's The Rachel, a 1990s-defining haircut so good it got its own capital letters. Even Kate Middleton got in on the action back in August, stepping out with feathered frontal layers, bouncy-shoulder-length ends and an off-centre parting.

And let's not forget when Hailey Bieber enlisted the help of hair stylist Amanda Lee in order to rock some retro pigtails, a master styling trick for a fresh look at bouncy blowout. She paired this with a bold bikini and classic Nike Jordans (again, with the 1990s style)

Well, in today's edition of Who Wore The Rachel Best? we have the gorgeous Chrissy Teigen, who posted a short clip on Instagram in which she swished her new feathery haircut and showed off some brand new layers and chunky retro highlights.

She captioned the post: 'New hair who this, it’s me obviously i don’t get it' and tagged in hairstylist Tracey Cunningham.

Although Chrissy didn't make the Friends link, her fans were quick to, with one commenting: 'Rachel Green vibes!!!!!!! LOVES IT!!!!!!! [sic] ' and another added that the style was 'Giving me early 1990s Rachel cut.[sic] '

Beautiful, Chrissy. Long live the Rachel...
