Clothes From the TV Show A Different World

Back to Cool: A Different World

The plot description for A Different World is, "A group of students at a historically Black university struggle to make it through college." Woah, heavy. But the tagline is, "Big laughs on campus." That's more like it. Maybe I was too young to pick up on the struggles, I just remember a group of young'uns making college look like a cool place comprised of interesting characters and funky wardrobes. I mean Dwayne Wayne's flip-up glasses? I totally forgot Marisa Tomei was on the show — I was too mesmerized by Lisa Bonet's great looks. It might have had after-school-special lessons, but it had mad style. It's a different world, from where you come from!

I used to watch the show all the time. I loved it until the end then it started to go down hill IMO.
