From 1993 to 1999, students of fashion the world over had a weekly homework assignment: watch The Nanny with Fran Drescher. The network comedy followed the adventures of Fran Fine (Drescher) as she navigates the upper-class world of her love interest (Mr. Sheffield) while caring for his three children. All the while, the show's fashion designers were working overtime to make sure she was wearing amazing outfits every. Single. Week. In our modern age of binge-watching and nostalgia, it was only a matter of time before someone began giving Fran's fashion the attention it deserves.



The account, titled whatfranwore, is run by Shanae Brown, a dedicated Fran fan who makes an effort to ID as many of Drescher's outfits as she can. It turns out many of the nanny's most "eccentric" looks are actually examples of the era's high fashion!


Brown spoke with People Magazine about what made her start the Instagram account:

Almost two years ago I decided to binge watch The Nanny because growing up I had only seen the show in passing and I realized I've never seen all the episodes. While watching I started noticing how amazing her outfits were and that was never something that held my attention as a child.

When she first began watching The Nanny, Brown was surprised to find how few resources there were on the internet focused on Drescher's outfits. She decided to correct the issue:

There were a few blogs and articles that spoke about Fran's outfits, and a few posted about some pretty iconic Moschino pieces that she wore, but that was as far as it went. I realized no one else had tracked down her other outfits and I figured I should at least try.


The account has actually gotten some attention from people involved with the show:

Brenda Cooper who was the costume designer on the show has reached out to me, and Peter Marc Jacobson the co-creator of the show follows the account and occasionally leaves comments.


People asked Brown what she had learned from her 400+ posts about Fran's fashion style. Her answer was beautifully insightful:

I've learned that mixing high end pieces with low end pieces never ever goes out of style.
I would define Fran's style as trendy. Fran was rocking every fashion trend of the '90s and she slayed the game.
Her style is definitely misunderstood. She rocked so many bold/crazy prints that shouldn't work, but they do.


WhatFranWore has over 266k followers who are all absolutely gaga for Drescher's outfits!









Alright, time to go back and binge every episode of The Nanny! Grab your popcorn, folks, because we're not getting up until we've looked at ALL of Fran's iconic outfits.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article stated that Mr. Sheffield had two children. It has been updated to correct that number to three.

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
