Songtress Erykah Badu models Givenchy’s Spring campaign in high style. I think this is a good look for her and the brand. Designer Riccardo Tisci told Style.com that he considers her a style icon and is one of the most stylish women he has ever met. Tisci leaked the photo on his notorious Instagram page. I really suggest you follow him on Instagram for a hug behind the scenes look into his life. Note that some of the photos are suggestive, like the one where he hinted at sleeping with singer Frank Ocean.
Tisci had this to say in the Style.com article about his model choice, “What I want to do with my advertising campaign is spread the love. Already now it’s been three seasons that I’ve been using people that express something—they are great artists, or beautiful women, or stylish women, or models that I really believe in. It’s kind of a family portfolio.”
The Spring 2014 ad campaign features a collection with a heavy mix of Asian and African influences. I thin Ms. Badu is the perfect model for this campaign since she already dresses like this anyway, and like Tisci says, “Erykah, she’s an icon—come on!” Photo from Style.com.
