Sarah Michelle Gellar Shares Which Wardrobe Items She Took From The Set Of Buffy

From 1997 to 2003, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" helped redefine how audiences felt about shows set within the paranormal. With more biting humor and teenage angst than "The X-Files," the program helped launch the careers of several actors and kick off the Golden Age of Television. In fact, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" changed TV, even if no one noticed until years after its final episode aired on the now-defunct UPN. Blending both humorous and intensely dramatic writing, along with fantasy, romance, horror, martial arts, and everything in between, the show also looked incredible thanks to first-rate world-building and era-specific fashion.

Anyone who grew up watching the dramedy is acutely aware of the wardrobe and accessories featured, but new viewers are picking up on the unique style choices as well (via Vogue). Even Buffy Summers herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, has recounted the aesthetic of the program and her character's clothing choices in retrospective assessments.

She's also shared which wardrobe items she took from the set and still has to this day. Across seven seasons and 144 episodes, some of her keepsakes are a bit random.

Sarah Michelle Gellar still has the dress she fought the Master in and much more

Sarah Michelle Gellar joined WhoWhatWear to talk about some of her iconic looks over the years and wound up spending time discussing her wardrobe for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," stating, "Buffy's costumes were a huge part of who she was and what she was experiencing at that moment." She pointed out the evolution of her character from the pilot episode, where Buffy is basically a prototypical California teenager, to the more nuanced, mature, and professional attire once the Slayer settles into her role and massive responsibilities.

The "Cruel Intentions" star ultimately wishes she would've taken more from the set, but she did reveal which items she has: "I do have the boots still. The dress in Season 1 where Buffy gets killed for the first time was a copy of a dress that I won my Emmy in, and I still have the original dress that it was the copy of. I think I still have the jacket she wore in the last episode, but I don't have a ton."
