Magazine Glam: Liya Kebede Channels Salt-N-Pepa for V Magazine

Am I getting old?

The funky, fresh vibe that characterized women in 90's hip hop is now the inspiration for the Spring season. I remember growing up watching Salt-N-Pepa's flavorful fashions---funky, colored hair, tons of gold jewelry, doorknockers, loud, colorful clothes---and thinking it was the coolest thing I've ever seen.

Well, it seems the 90's look is back with a vengeance with denim jackets, cut-off shirts, bare midriffs, dookie chains, bold brights, acid wash jeans and loud prints hot again for Summer.

One of my favorite models, Liya Kebede, alongside Lily Donaldson, captured the look in an editorial spread for the upcoming April V Magazine. Here's a peek at the 10-page spread, shot by Josh Olins.

Do you love it?

And for old times sake, I included my favorite video, Salt-N-Pepa's "Shoop" at the end of the post. I knew every word to this song as a little girl. Love the '90's!

Acid wash jeans, door knockers, brights, big hair--love it. SnP was my fave growing up. I remember when singing every word to Shoop down the hallway at school was like, the COOLEST thing you could do in seventh grade.
