After “Rachel Green” Makes a Comeback at Fashion Week, Jennifer Aniston Joins Instagram

Congratulations to Jennifer Aniston. She might be a bit late to the party but she’s finally made it onto Instagram. And she’s certainly making up for lost time. Her first post only went up yesterday, but it’s already generated practically nine million likes.

It involved a “Friends” reunion shot featuring Jen and fellow actors from the hit ’90s U.S. television series Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry. She captioned the post “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM.”

So far so good. The actress’s memorable sitcom character had an even bigger moment during Paris Fashion Week spring ’20. At Nodaleto’s presentation there, designer Julia Toledano showcased a collection inspired by ’90s television shows and movies. All the shoes were named in honor of characters, and Jennifer Aniston’s “Friends” alter ego Rachel Green was represented by a pair of square-toe denim platforms with the label’s trademark chunky asymmetrical heel.

Toledano, who calls the shoe the Geller after David Schwimmer’s Ross, told FN that “the first thing I thought about was Rachel Green. I’m 26, but my sister is 36, so I was kind of growing up with her,” she said.

Aniston’s character was well-known for wearing those ’90s favorite square-toe shoes that are having a major fashion moment right now. We can certainly see Aniston / Green working this particular number.
