Ashley Banks’ awesome 90s ensemble in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Season 4 clip-show “For Sale By Owner” (1994)
Who can resist a Fresh Prince re-run when it pops up on the TV guide? I definitely can’t. In my opinion, it’s the BEST 90s sitcom & possibly my favorite on-screen family ever (right alongside the Bluths, the Fishers & the Addams). Come on, Will! Carlton! Jeffrey!?
Anyway, considering the Fresh Prince comes to mind every time someone calls me “DJ Jazzi Jeff!!!” (on average – twice a week, though I like letting everyone think they’re totally original in coming up with it. I much prefer “Jazzercize”), I don’t know how Ashley Banks has managed to slip my mind as style influence for so long. I should start a blog full of all her awesome outfits! I want to approximate this one asap. Maybe Chloe Sevs can pop it in her next Opening Ceremony collab?
Oh, and yes, that’s Donald Trump looking exactly the same in a 1994 cameo. And speaking of Ashley Banks, remember Tatyana Ali’s Daydreamin? She was like a mini-Janet Jackson.
Anyone care to walk down 90s memory lane with me? Other favorite families? Shows? My short list: Daria, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, My So Called Life, Roswell, Clarissa & Blossom… and Freaks & Geeks but let’s be honest – who actually watched it in the 90s? If you did, props.
