Lizzie McGuire

Lizzie McGuire (played by Hilary Duff) is the thirteen-year-old protagonist of the Disney Channel original series with the same name.  Lizzie is a fairly average teenage girl, navigating school and life with her best friends Gordo and Miranda by her side.  What sets Lizzie apart is her animated alter ego, who often breaks the fourth wall to speak directly to the audience and voice Lizzie’s inner thoughts.  Whether you choose to recreate cartoon Lizzie or her real life counterpart, this is a fun chance to bust out all of the quirky ’90s accessories you may have stowed away out of embarrassment.  So grab your bell bottoms and your platform sandals, and strut your stuff with your favorite glitter lip gloss.  The ’90s are back!
