When FemaleFirst heard that Blazin Squad were planning to make a comeback, we thought baggy jeans, oversized t-shirts and those funny hand gestures that all the rap stars seemed to be doing these days.
But as the lads were planning on unveiling a more grown up, edgy look, we thought it was only right that we gave the lads a bit of a makeover to prepare them for their forray into the world of ‘grown up’ music.
So, we hoiked the boys off to Manchester for a day of shopping (not in a local sports shop I might add!) to get rid of the tracksuits and the bling and get them looking like the little stud muffins we all knew they were.
Although there are only five of them these days, we think we made Lee, Mus, Marcel, Kenzie and James look rather foxy as they ditched their ghetto wannabe style of 2003 and went for streetwise style in gorgeous suit jackets and a cobra-headed umbrella which saw them transformed from lads into gentlemen.
Although most men would kill for a body like Celebrity Big Brother star and BS frontman Kenzie, he told me hey top fashion tip when it comes to looking as buff as he does these days; “ I always buy my T-Shirts one size too small so that I look even more ripped!” - Thanks for that Kenzie, I’ll have to try it - although I think I’d just end up looking like the titanic than toned.
Check out our video of the makeover below, and re-live the dream!
