Think There Goes The Motherhood mom Stefanie Fair looks a bit familiar? Well, that's because Stefanie is one third of the late '90s girl group Wild Orchid - Fergie Ferg's first band before the Black Eyed Peas. That's right - before Fergie had all the London Bridges falling down, she was making sweet girl ballads with fellow Orchids (we assume that's what they would call themselves) Stefanie and Renee Sandstorm.
And when we say '90s we mean oh-so-gloriously '90s it will make you grab your chocker necklace, butterfly clips, and glitter lipstick. We mean, the ladies played at the Peach Pit After Dark on Beverly Hills, 90210, people. Take a look below at all the, like, totally awesome goodness of Wild Orchid with our definitive '90s ranking of their music videos. You're welcome for re-introducing this girl group to your playlist.
1. At Night I Pray
This slightly gospel ballad about love is probably still playing on your dentist's favorite light FM station. While that matte lipstick and leather jacket look is, like, so '90s, it's still a bit quiet considering what's in store. Think Ally McBeal vs. Spice Girls. Please note the classic slow-mo walking, over-tweezed brows, and square cut nails.
Don't let the '50s throwback full you, this music video is full on '90s. Don't believe us? Hit the 2:11 mark and you'll see what we're talking about. Weird fish-eye lense shots, men with bucket hats, and, of course, the ladies in matching club wear with platform shoes and CRIMPED HAIR. (Full disclosure, we may or may not have owned an actual crimper. Sorry, hair.).
3. Talk to Me
Now with "Talk to Me," our Wild Orchids have stepped up their '90s game up a few levels. Shiny crop top blouses are out in full force, their layered highlights are perfection, and Stephanie's dark lip liner is simply da bomb. But what really makes this video pop are four words: latex leather dancing suits. Could they be cooler? As if!
4. Be Mine
Have the words "save the best for last" ever held more meaning? This video looks like it was actually filmed in a Windows screensaver from 1998. The ladies look like they're floating in the ether of The Net and need goggles (Remember how goggles were a thing? Seth Green in Can't Hardly Wait, anyone?) to send a message using magical, alien bubbles. Also - midriffs abound, but in that Sporty Spice tomboy way we were all into. And we didn't even mention the film the video under glass technique that they are definitely pulling off. Just please watch, enjoy and be happy spring is almost here so you too can rock your fave crop top again.
