From her internship at Teen Vogue, her killer West Hollywood apartment and every other ridiculously unattainable aspect of an 18-year-old's life, LC just wanted to be with her best friends forever. During the show's four year run, we became invested in the cast's emotional highs and lows, but it was their signature noughties stile that gave us life lessons never to be forgotten.

Lesson #1: No outfit is complete without a hairband.

Whether you're dressing up for a day of interning at Teen Vogue, meeting with you bad boy ex-boyfriend of chilling around the house, your hairband will add instant glam.

Lesson #2: This rule also applies to hats.

You might live in one of the consistently hottest climates in the US, but when fashion calls - you answer.

Lesson #3: When you're trying to look serious at work, wear pearls.

Lesson #4: You can't be a cool California girl without your bra strap showing.

Looking at your Kristin...

Lesson #5: When you're heading off to Paris, a multi-colour chiffon top is your only option.

Lesson #6: When you get to Paris, glam the s*** out of it.

Lesson #7: If you're looking to make a splash, you better have a statement earring ready.

Lesson #8: Always change your personal style to reflect that of your boyfriend.

Remember when Kristin wore this denim cut-off vest during her faux-mance with Justin Bobby?

Or when Audrina always dramatically followed him on his motorcycle?

Lesson #9:  A plait is non-negotiable.

Lesson #10: When life is getting you down, get your crystals and tye-dye shirt and start yelling at everyone you see.

Look at that face...wisdom beyond her years.
