OOhh my favorite natural hair gals Solange, Erykah Badu, and Ledisi cover the May 2014 issue of Essence Magazine! They look so amazing. I love the fact that the magazine made this a triple cover issue, and chose these fantastic women. I love their hair, I love them, I love the covers. So beautiful! I am going to put some behind the scenes videos below. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am trying to finish up spring break. I wish it could last for another week. Photos from here.
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.
Don’t forget about the $140 Target Gift Card Giveaway.
While Beyonce is busy touring for the Mrs. Carter Show over in Europe, she decided to low key drop two songs this week. Now we have a snippet of “Standing on the Sun” from Beyonce’s new fashion campaign for the H&M Summer Collection 2013. She looks amazing in the video dancing around on the beach and twirling in the sand with different color weaves and bikinis. She is definitely living the life.
Her fans had been clamoring for a new single though. They are getting downright impatient. That is what she had promised them late last year. We had only heard the snippet of Grown Woman in the new Pepsi commercial. We still only have this snippet of “Standing on the Sun”, but she has started to perform “Grown Woman” in full during her concert tour. Check out an HD clip on B Scott’s website. She looks absolutely fabulous in Kenzo. Don’t you think?
While Beyonce is busy kicking off her Mrs. Carter tour in Europe, Kelly Rowland is busy just getting out of cars and being really fabulous. She looks so good in the daytime look. Rumor has it she might reprise her UK X-Factor judging role here in the US as a replacement for Britney Spears. Photo from here.
Look at Tina Turner! How many 73 years do you know that can turn out a Vogue Germany cover like that, or any magazine cover for that matter? She looks great! Can I look that good at that age please? [SOURCE]
