Not so long ago they were the leading ladies ruling the big screen thanks to hit movies such as Bring It On, Clueless, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Girl Next Door and She's All That.

But since these films, a lot of our favourite actresses seem to have dropped off the radar.

So what happened? Here's where those 90s poster girls are now.

Probably best known for her role as Cher in Clueless, Alicia Silverstone now spends her time working on vegan lifestyle site, The Kind Life. She starred in Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul earlier this year, and can be seen next in Book Club alongside Jane Fonda and Candice Bergen.

Elisha Cuthbert starred in teen favourite The Girl Next Door before a long stint on 24. Since 24 she's faded from the spotlight. Her last release was alongside Sean William Scott in Goon: Last of the Enforcers.

Eliza Dushku played the rebellious Missy in Bring it On, but these days she's focused on her charity work and gets occasional acting roles in direct release and TV movies. Judging by her Instagram, she appears to have never aged.

Elizabeth Berkley rose to fame when she starred in Saved by the Bell, however it was her infamous starring role in Showgirls that would be her downfall.

She has since given birth to a son named Sky, and written a book giving advice to teen girls called Ask Elizabeth.

LeeLee Sobieski scored roles in teen rom-com Never Been Kissed and thriller The Glass House, but after a few box office fails Sobieski has struggled to find high-profile work. The actress now has two children with her husband Adam Kimmell and an enviable (?) collection of stars' hair.

She seemed destined for big things after starring alongside Freddie Prinze Junior in She's All That but Rachel Leigh Cook's career took a nose dive after the box office blunder of Josie and the Pussycats. Despite the knock, she still averages at least a movie a year (most straight to TV), has voiced a number of characters in hit video games, and is still good mates with Freddie Prinze Junior.

Excellent #TBT with this guy; a beautiful actor and human being. 17 years, holyyyyyy...
