Anne Heche recently reflected on her past red-carpet looks, including one that was influenced by her ex-girlfriend Ellen DeGeneres.

In a TikTok video this week, Heche rated her "most iconic fashion looks." She looked back fondly on almost every outfit in her video, except for a blue velvet coat she wore to the 1998 Golden Globes, which she attended with DeGeneres.

"Why do I look like a hippie?" she said while looking at a red-carpet photo of herself. "It's because Ellen didn't want me to dress sexy."

"Bye. No," she said while giving a thumbs down.

DeGeneres wore a classic menswear look that night, which included a shining suit, black dress shoes, and a gold necklace. Heche, on the other hand, sported multiple '90s staples.

She wore a velvet jacket with a ruffled neckline and semi-sheer sleeves over a sleeveless velvet dress. The actress also wore pointed heels, carried a velvet purse, and wore tinted sunglasses.

Heche and DeGeneres dated from 1997 until 2000.

"In 1997, I met Ellen DeGeneres at the Vanity Fair party, and that was the night that changed my life forever," Heche told her "Dancing With the Stars" partner Keo Motsepe in 2020.

"I was in a relationship with Ellen DeGeneres for three and a half years, and the stigma attached to that relationship was so bad that I was fired from my multimillion-dollar picture deal and I did not work in a studio picture for 10 years," she continued.

Also in 2020, DeGeneres faced major criticism after former employees and people who appeared on her show accused her of rude behavior, invasive interviews, and more.

Representatives for Ellen DeGeneres did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
