Retro Rewind: The Best of Kenya Moore

Published: Saturday 28th Jan 2017 by David

Welcome to another edition of Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to honour the work of artists responsible for some of Pop culture’s brightest moments.

Today, as her role of villain on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ keeps her name hot on the lips of a new generation of TV lovers, we honour Kenya Moore‘s contributions to music, fashion and film and the often overlooked career she enjoyed before becoming a “Housewife.”

Born on January 24th 1971, Moore rose to stardom aged 22 when she became the winner of Miss USA in 1993.

What came next was a fruitful run in Hollywood which saw her support African-American fronted projects with performances which, for better or worse, would lead her to ‘Housewives’ front door.

Take that journey to the past with us via clips pulled from her projects below…

Any favourites?

      Our faces tend to change as we get older. For better or for worse.
