Style Muse: Denise Huxtable aka Lisa Bonet aka Lilakoi Moon
I can confidently assume that the majority of you out there have seen the Cosby show, and would hope that the majority of you would agree that Denise Huxtable was pretty fabulous.... I know that when I was young enough to form any opinion about style and fashion I knew that Denise had the wickedest style around, and probably in a very primary kid like way, I would try to emulate that look.
When I researched Denise's look a little more, I realized that not only does Denise have great style, but so does Lisa Bonet (who now goes by Lilakoi Moon). Not only is she a natural beauty, but she really knows how to dress in a unique way that enhances her assets. It is a sort of Rastafarian flower child with a little bit of a western influence. And we can't forget one of the coolest aspects of the way Denise/Lisa/Lilakoi dresses....LAYERS! That was one thing I always tried to pull of (but couldn't) layering. Flowy stuff over tight stuff or shirt tales pocking out of a big grandpa sweater....
To top off the clothes the hair and makeup were always subtle and natural. I'm always drawn to that look and try to achieve it in my everyday way of dressing. Don't get me wrong I like to put on makeup and look totally fab once and a while but even that has it's limits.... Keep it simple I guess is what I'm trying to say.
All in all I still admire Denise's clothes and still try to go for these looks when I dress. I can't resist the laid back look of sportswear reinterpreted. Cool and comfortable. I live by it!
