Flashback Friday: Sherilyn Fenn was the ultimate 90s femme fatale

Sherilyn Fenn always seemed like someone born into the wrong time. She never fit in with the standard of beauty in women who broke big back in the 90s. She belonged in the 30s and 40s, where she no doubt would have really shined just as bright as the rest of the silver screen beauties of that age. As a result of being out of time with her hotness, she kind of fell into a niche back in the day, which was exacerbated by repeated photo spreads like those below, most arranged with an obvious retro look. Her throwback hotness made her noteworthy in her prime, but didn't seem to spell lasting fame for her. Sherilyn's high point, at least for me, was Twin Peaks. As Audrey Horne, she was the typical Lolita seductress, troublesome and seemingly turned on by everyone. Her obvious sexual intensity, coupled with that classic look of hers and a handy schoolgirl outfit, made her an obvious choice for a David Lynch production, which are usually keen on harkening to a seedy, back room, forbidden style of sexuality from days past. Sherilyn was good on that show, but I don't think acting has ever been her greatest skill. She really did make for some delicious eye candy though. And I've always wondered if she could really do this (skip to 1:14):

Probably not. Still, even if she wasn't the best actress or capable of manipulating objects with her tongue, one does have to give her credit for not disappearing. Curiously, like so many of the people on Twin Peaks, she's settled into a career of one off TV roles, which she's been doing for years. Occasionally she'll just show up in something, like her recent recurring role on the Starz show Magic City, where she plays a madame at a brothel. That's interesting. She's come full circle, going from whorehouse employee on Twin Peaks to whorehouse employer on Magic City. I guess you could call that progress. Me, I'll always remember her as the classy dame who's only flaw was that she was born too late.

Had her poster on my wall back in the day . . .

You're right: Sherilyn Fenn was born about 30 - 40 years too late. Also, she was never the greatest actress so that didn't help her career once she got older. From what pictures I've seen, she's aged very well though. Check out 1988's TWO MOON JUNCTION if you're a Fenn fan: the movie's crap but she gives up the goods in that flick.
