Fab Fashion Friday- Salute to Erykah Badu
Last week while we (including ME) were all in an uproar behind the bodacious Beyonce‘ dropping her secret album and breaking the internet… Ms Badu was being hand selected and introduced by Riccardo Tisci, the creative director to be the face of Givenchy’s Spring 2014 collection. This Fab Fashion Friday is a tribute to her.
In the Dallas Morning News, Badu stated “Riccardo’s a fan of my style,” “He told me he really wanted to work with me because he had a special campaign he designed for me. He sent me some of the photos, and I was super-honored; I didn’t take it for granted. Fashion is my thing, and I am a big fan of Riccardo’s — not just because of his amazing eye, but because of his spirit, what he wanted. He wants to give models of color an opportunity, and he chose me as the face for that campaign because he told me I fit what he wanted to represent.” – See more at: fdluxe.dallasnews.com
Erykah Badu is a world known risk taker. She has never been apologetic for her style and is completely comfortable being uniquely beautiful. This mother, artist, vegan, entertainer and icon stepped on the scene with her unique style in 1997 and has stayed true to her individuality never conforming to music industry standards.
When Riccardo Tisci was asked why Erykah his reply was simple: “Erykah, she’s an icon—come on!” “She’s one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life. She’s got such a good sense of proportion, of colors.”
