  • Diane carol? Clair Huxtable? Toni Childs?


    I like the idea of the list but…why are most of the “black women” on the list biracial?? That’s irritating…

  • Penny

    Thelma Evans and Willona Woods from Good Times should be number one on this list!

  • chanela

    um.. ya’ll do know that they get dressed by stylists right???

  • Shay n Scrappy 4 ever! Lmao

    Mercedes off Glee (before it got whack) has ALWAYS had the best wardrobe….

  • NJ2

    Joan Clayton in general, Tracee Ellis Ross specifically is just stylish and classic!

  • DivaRia01

    Brandy on “Moesha” is another good one that was missed.

  • I love all of these ladies! And yes Hiliary should’ve been on this list! In order for sex in the city to be on here you would have to change the title of this blog!

    I think I was more in love with the fashion from Single Ladies 1st season w/Stacey Dash….but yeah ummmmmmm why is Sex and the City cast on here. I dont understand, esp because it’s not as if they’ve never been recognized before.

    Sex and the City cast on a list for most fashionable BLACK women in television history…. Oh ok.

    • bb

      They have single ladies (and I’m not capitalizing it) and sex in the city but NO Clair Huxtable? Everything is wrong with this list.

  • Reese

    Why is Hillary from Fresh Prince of Bel Air not on this list?
