Style BFF: Denise Huxtable


1 comment

In the spirit of loving on the '90s, we'd like to give a big shout-out to Denise Huxtable.

Daughter of doctor Cliff and lawyer Clair Huxtable, a fashion plate herself, Denise won our hearts with her sense of style from day one. When The Cosby Show premiered in 1984, Denise was 16, and — in addition to being drop-dead gorgeous — had a rad sense of style. It must have really sucked to be Denise's sister, whether you were boring older sister Sondra, annoying little sister Rudy, or — the Jan Brady of the Huxtables, poor Vanessa. (Does anyone even remember Vanessa?)

Denise could rock any hairstyle.

Denise was not afraid of adventurous eye makeup.

Denise even made braces look cool.

But it was her clothing, sourced from a seemingly neverending closet, that had all of us either green with jealousy or ripe for inspiration. Denise, when you went off to college — to A Different World, specifically — and even all the way to Africa, where you married that guy and brought Raven-Symone back, we were with you on your sartorial journey. Thank you.

But when your TV dad has a collection of such awesome sweaters, what else would you expect?
