By: Tanisha Morris The sold-out show that was scheduled to start at 7pm began almost an hour late. However, many students said the performance delivered was well worth the wait.
We R 1’s “Love, Lust and Lies: The Tale of a Twisted Fantasy“ told the classic tale of boy meets girl, boy romances girl, boy meets different girl, and gets caught up. The models told the story through skits and runway. With sexy dance skits and stylish runway modeling, the models brought sex appeal to the stage. Models mixed the classic school look with bowties, khakis, and suspenders. All the models brought strived to bring originality to the table and substance to the 4-scenceshow.
During intermission, the We R 1 Family showcased their new models to the university. The spring 2012 models of We R 1 came out upbeat and sassy for a straight runway.
Jordan Bishop, member of the We R 1 Family and class of 2012, hosted with Lincoln University alumni and former We R 1 model, Elendor Bryant. The two brought comedy as well as style to the show. Keeping the audience up and entertained, the duo modeled and invited the audience to get on stage and strut their stuff. Past members, Ziana members and even plain audience members were getting up, ready to show off walks and spins of their own.
Spencer Williams, We R 1’s music director and model, said, “[We have] more big things to come, stay tuned”.
