Robin Givens Reflects On Being The Brown Skin Sex Symbol Of The 90s!



Robin Givens was serving Brown Skin Girl realness before many of you were born — and just in case you forgot, we’re here to remind you of one of the original Godiva Goddesses!

When Givens hit the big screen in the 90s hit “Boomerang” a new chocolate queen was cemented into cinematic history. Of course, many knew Robin from her numerous small screen roles, but it was her stunning portrayal as Jacqueline Broyer on the Silver Screen that made folks stop in their tracks and hail the “Head of the Class” star as the premiere brown skin beauty of the decade!

And no, it wasn’t just Black folks that loved her. Robin also graced the pages of Playboy and was ranked number 88 on Empire magazine’s “100 Sexiest Stars in Film History” list in May 1995. Her foiness knew no color bounds. But it was the Black community that embraced her like no other and held her up during a time when not many women of darker complexions were celebrated in that way. And so, when HH sat down with her to discuss her role on the new OWN show “Ambitions”, we had to let her know that her legacy opened (and continues to open) so many doors.

Surprisingly, she let us know that while many women looked up to her, it was one special woman that she looked up to that changed her life!

The midseason finale of “Ambitions” airs on OWN August 27th — check back to HH next week for part two of our exclusive with Robin Givens.
