There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In 'Great Outfits in Fashion History,' Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

Alanis Morissette took over the '90s music scene with her alternative rock anthems. And when she won Best Rock Song for "Uninvited" at the 1999 Grammy Awards, she brought her understated grunge aesthetic to the red carpet in a floor-length, boat-neck beaded gown.

Known for her flowing brunette waves, the then-24-year-old musician leveled up her signature hairstyle with a few crystal beads mirroring those sewn into her dress. Morissette completed her shimmering all-black ensemble with matching pointed-toe heels and a shawl — a modest staple of nearly any '90s formal look. She also embraced a softer glam: a subtle smokey eye and a slight pink flush across the cheeks.
