En Vogue

Before we were saying Destiny's Child's name, before TLC was calling out creeps and scrubs, there was another band of funky divas bringing back the 60s musical traditional of the girl group in an bold, modern style—En Vogue. The ladies of En Vogue stood at the forefront of the early 90s movement that would turn R&B into one of the most popular musical genres in the country. More than anything, they taught women about the importance of some good sass talk—later R&B smashes like Destiny's Child "Independent Women" can be traced straight back to En Vogue's iconic "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)." The group's gone through several lineup changes over the years, but they've proved themselves to be survivors. And if you think these fly girls can't step into their high heels and shake it just because they're in their 50s now, then perhaps you need to free your mind. The rest will follow. ERIN K. THOMPSON
