Drew Barrymore transported fans back in time with her latest Instagram post.

On Thursday, the actress celebrated the upcoming 94th Academy Awards by sharing a photo of herself taken on the Oscars red carpet back in 1998.

The free-spirited star radiated happiness in a sparkling cowl neck Versace gown and daisies tucked behind both of her ears.

"1998 Oscars #tbt," she captioned the photo for her more than 15 million followers.

The 47-year-old's "nostalgic" post was quickly met with praise from fans, who dubbed her "the queen of the '90s."

"First off, this was a look. Your smile is adorable. Secondly, I wasn't expecting to take a trip back to 1998 today — this is so nostalgic. Queen of the '90s!" one Instagram user commented.

"When I think of you and how much I adored you in my teen years (in the '90s) this is one of the images that comes to mind!" someone else echoed. "Just perfectly Drew."

"Girl, everyone dressed like you in the '90s!" another said of the fashion-forward star. "The daisies are iconic."

"This Drew era is the reason I have daisies tattooed on my foot!"

"It’s the flowers in the hair for me," someone else commented.

"I remember this look! You were the cutest one there! Daisies for the win, always Drew!" another wrote.

Barrymore reflected on the memorable look in a 2021 interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"I liked when I wore the daisies in my hair. Grocery store daisies, and then I took a can of glitter from a beauty supply store and sprayed it on myself everywhere," she said. "The red carpet is a place to play and go for it. And you only live once, so just have fun!"
