Fashion Flashback : TLC
The internetz is all ablaze about Rihanna ripping off M.I.A. in her new Rude Boy video (we had our own take that she is channeling her inner Grace Jones ). We thinks both of them are borrowing the aesthetics from TLC! These Crazy Sexy Cool girls set it off in 1991, with their hyper-feminist single “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg”, eventually selling over 40 million records in the U.S. alone. Sadly in 2002 Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes was killed in a car accident in Honduras just before the release of their fourth album, 3D. Take a walk down memory lane and see the girls in the outfits that influenced not only M.I.A. and Rihanna but Destiny’s Child and Lady Sovereign.
