Rudy's performance of Ray Charles' "Night and Day." Clair's quips. Theo learning about the importance of money. That time Denise played Theo's personal couturier. Cliff's sweaters. These snippets and more are embedded in the brains of viewers around the globe, and make this weekend's 30th anniversary of The Cosby Show one to truly celebrate.
The Huxtables made us laugh out loud and taught us some of life's most memorable lessons, which won The Cosby Show countless accolades and positive reviews that still ring true today. After all, it was just four years ago that members of the cast (Bill Cosby, Raven-Symoné, Tempestt Bledsoe Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Phylicia Rashad, Sabrina Le Beauf and Geoffrey Owens), were honored at the 9th annual TV Land awards with the Impact Award, proving that The Cosby Show will forever live on in TV history.
What will also live on are the lessons in style that The Cosby Show taught its audiences. As one of America's most favored television families, the Huxtables were also the most fashionable with Cliff's sweaters, Denise's changing hairstyles and Clair's elegance. So, in light of the show's anniversary, we reflect on the outstanding sartorial moments in the show's eight-season run.
IF EVER YOU WERE HAVING A BAD HAIR DAY
The Huxtables had you covered.
RUDY, VANESSA AND CLAIR KNEW THAT A BLAZER...
... looked better on them than on the gents of the show.
AND CLAIR MADE ORANGE THE NEW BLACK
Without looking like a pumpkin.
Rudy was the cutest pumpkin you ever did see.
BEFORE BOYFRIEND JEANS
Denise made wearing your boyfriend's sweatshirt cool. But, let's just face it: Denise made everything look cool.
AND CLAIR MADE THE LETTERMAN'S JACKET A THING
In the chicest way possible, of course.
IF EVER YOU NEEDED A LESSON ON HOW TO POP YOUR COLLAR
Vanessa had you covered.
AND, IF EVER YOU WANTED TO CHANNEL YOUR INNER DISNEY PRINCESS
Clair was the most beautiful belle of the ball.
OH, AND YOUR CAMO SHIRT, SHORTS, PANTS, BACKPACKS
Got nothing on Cliff's camo sweater.
