That Time When Marques Houston Wore Rubber: Throwback Thursday
I’m not really sure what people think about when they made some terrible fashion decisions like they do. I mean, I get it. Sometimes, we don’t know better. Like the fact that I wore burnt braids that came down in an angle down my chin for half of the 90s. I spent too much time looking like Mystikal and I have picture evidence of it. Yes, I am ashamed.
Anywho, since Throwback Thursday is really a THING now, I thought to post some old (read: more than 5 years old) of folks looking a mess. Today’s victim is Marques Houston. Actually, no. We are the victims for being subjected to this. But look:
GO HOME, ROGER! And go put on clothes that won’t melt near flames.
This tacky fool agreed to leave the house rocking the rubber/plastic that Grandma puts on her couch like it’s ok. I just wanna slide off him and tell everyone to be careful because he just got reupholstered. I know the MTV Movie Awards has no dress code but rocking a shower curtain’s liner is surely not appropriate for, well, LIFE.
I have many questions though.
* Whose idea was it for him to rock this rubber alphet? Was it him or did some sabotaging ass stylist who he paid too much egg him on? And how did that conversation go down?
“My dude. I got something that’ll have you on that red carpet SO FRESH.”
“WORD? Lay it on me.
“Aight so it’s this clear suit with white accents. It’s so unique!”
“Clear. Is that a shade of blue?”
“NAW! See-through. And you gon put on some clean ass Air Force Ones with them.”
“YOOOO THAT’S TIGHT! Let’s do it.”
Chile… wut? Somebody set him up for failure. I don’t e’em understand how this ever crossed Marques mind as ok. And based on the look on his face, he was really feeling himself. He didn’t wear this as some joke. No. He REALLY seemed to think he looked good.
And look at the fact that he has a pair of regular shorts (with a belt) under them pants. This outfit was doing a lot and doing nothing at the same damb time. How unfortunate!
But really. GO HOME, ROGER! In 2004 looking like never. WOMP.
So whatcha’ll think bout Marques in his Rubber Chic?
