It’s amazing how a single photograph can transport you back to a different era, making you feel the emotions that you experienced during that time. Monalisa Coker, known for her iconicmovieroles and her charismatic presence on television, shared a throwback picture on her Instagram account that took us all down memory lane are we in our feelings, definitely yes!
The photograph taken in the late 90s when Monalisa Coker was a student at the University of Port Harcourt, is over two decades old but Mona’s beauty is boldly evident (she has not aged a day and it’s almost as if she discovered a serum for eternal youth). She is seen wearing a halter neck sleeveless black dress with her first award (the wooden plaque) on her bosom. At that moment, the plaque was her most prized possession, and it’s very palpable (just look at it sitting pretty).
Taking a closer look, it is clear that the photo is from the 90s. Mona’s eyebrows perfectly arched in that round shape with the popular eye pencils, coupled with her black afro hair, are reminiscent of the fashion trends of that era. They bring back memories of the popular beauty trends that prevailed during that time, adding to the nostalgia of the picture. Another catchy accessory is her wrist and arm adornments, giving us a thrilling feel of vintage fashion.
In her heartfelt caption, the Film producer acknowledges that regardless of who we are- happy, sad, or crazy- we all find ourselves thinking about the past and cherishing the memories that have shaped us. And do we want more throwbacks? We surely do!
