The Best Fashion Moments From Sitcom "Martin"'s 30-Year Reunion Special
Marking 30 years since the premiere of beloved '90s sitcom "Martin," BET+ premiered "Martin: The Reunion" on June 16, directed by Stan Lathan, who invited cast members Martin Lawrence (Martin), Tisha Campbell (Gina), Tichina Arnold (Pamela), and Carl Anthony Payne II (Cole) to sit down with comedian and host Affion Crockett to revisit some of the most cherished moments from the series. Set in Detroit in the '90s, the show highlights young Black love and friendship on the screen, with plenty of hilarious highs and lows along the way. The actors also came together to honor and remember the late Thomas Mikal Ford, who passed away in 2016 and played Martin's best friend, Tommy, on the show.
The reunion features plenty of costume changes and fashion moments to admire. Campbell, in particular, stepped out in several looks, including a corseted blazer, a spandex leopard catsuit with an oversize bow adornment, and a cutaway Off-White dress, complete with her signature oversize hoops. Arnold, meanwhile, wore a white pantsuit accessorized with a gold elephant pendant necklace. A guest appearance from comedian Tommy Davidson (who played recurring character Varnell Hill) delivered a dapper Gucci moment, while Payne sports the Burberry logo. As for Lawrence, he paired a crinkle-effect leather shacket with Giuseppe Zanotti croc-effect sneakers.
