I was always a fan of Lisa Bonet’s character on The Cosby Show. She was free-spirited, carefree, a dreamer and although she took a lot of unconventional routes she reminded me of….myself.
Seriously! Ask my sisters. Whenever we play “Which sister are you from The Cosby Show?” they would all say I’m like Denise. I’m the one that went to college and cut off all of my hair. I moved to the other side of the country and dabbled in veganism, vegetarianism and everything in between.
Yeah yeah….so I’m the “eccentric” one in my family. And proud!
Some photos of Ms. Lisa Bonet popped up in the blogosphere and it appears that some of the Young, Black & Fabulous readers thinks she looks like a bum. What say you? Hit the jump to view the photos.
Am I missing something? I think she looks fine! I know, I know…you’re expecting me to question why she isn’t wearing any lip gloss or blush, right? Wrong! While I always like to look my best when I go out (even if to the grocery store), being comfortable means the world to me. Ms. Bonet doesn’t feel the need to wear 4-inch heels or skirt just to run some errands. And for that, I love her! Her skin is flawless and her freeform locs are just beautiful. Not to mention she is a 42-year old Mom with a toddler. She doesn’t have a drop of make-up and still looks youthful.
And she shops at Erewhon? I used to love shopping at that store when I lived in Los Angeles. But, um yeah..I don’t see anything wrong with her look at all.
What say you?
Is she taking the bum look too far or is this just classic comfortable bohem?
