Lisa Bonet's Style Evolution: Badass Boho Chic Since The '80s

She has still got it!

Before there was ever a Carrie Bradshaw or Cookie Lyon, one of our first TV style crushes was Denise Huxtable from "The Cosby Show" and "A Different World." The  head-strong yet lovable Ms. Huxtable taught us the power of accessorizing, layering, statement pieces and so much more. 

However, it was the actress who played her, Lisa Bonet, whose boho-chic off-screen style that has been the source of even more sartorial inspiration. 

Bonet's floor-sweeping hippie dresses, head-turning hats, lovely locs and penchant for fringe have made her a badass since the '80s, not to mention the effortless way she ignores fashion's ever-changing trends to remain her true and most authentic self. 

And the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Just last month actress Zoe Kravitz, Bonet's daughter with musician Lenny Kravitz, was named InStyle's Breakthrough Style Star during the first annual InStyle Awards. Kravitz has adopted her mother's I-couldn't-care-less-about-what-I'm-wearing-but-I-still-slay skills. 

In celebration of Bonet's 48th birthday on Nov. 16, we're taking a look back at her one-of-a-kind style. Which look is your favorite? Tell us in the comments section below.
