Brandy as Moesha

Brandy's Moesha broke ground for TV teens in the '90s. For five seasons we watched as the title character had to juggle issues of a blended family, premarital sex, race relations and the death of a parent. Plus, on the style-front, Brandy helped to bring braids back as a glam hairstyle for a whole new generation.
