Feeling nostalgic for the 90s? So are we!
Life was good in bright colors, baggy jeans and Dr. Martens. So when we saw the first official pictures from the upcoming TLC biopic, Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story, we couldn’t resist the urge to tell coworkers not to go chasin’ waterfalls.
The film follows the influential girl group from its Atlanta inception to recording studios, the Grammy Awards, and even the days following the tragic death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. With first-hand guidance from Chilli and T-Boz, the project has recreated the group’s most iconic videos, with cast members stepping into some of their more memorable ’90s fashions you may have tried to forget. In the photo below, 1992 single “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg”–off debut album, Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip–is brought to life for 2013. The song remains a classic in the R&B world, introducing us to three ATL tomboys who played by their own rules, and Lil Mama (Left Eye), Keke Palmer (Chilli), and Drew Sidora (T-Boz) step into those roles seamlessly.
What do you think of the first pictures? Can these ladies pull off the looks of one of the most iconic girl groups of all time?
