Riccardo Tisci & Erykah Badu

 

This afternoon, I am swooning over the fabulousness that is Erykah Badu as the face of Givenchy’s Spring 2014 campaign. Yes, I am fully aware of the fact that it is the end of the year 2015; regardless, care to swoon with me?

On why Tisci chose Badu to be the face of the Givenchy SS 14 campaign:

People can be so avant-garde, so advanced, but actually not, because people are still making differences between skin color.

– Riccardo Tisci

Fashion is what’s in. Style is what is. – Erykah Badu

I think these pictures can speak for themselves and say that Badu is truly a stylistic Queen and Tisci is a necessary contributor to the fashion world. What I appreciate most about this duo is the artistry and teamwork that is evident through and through. Two great artists came together in such a complimentary way and as a result, we get to see her fabulous and eclectic flair paired with that Givenchy chic!

If you wish to read about this collaboration,here is a great interview that these two did with V Magazine.

Okay, just one more:
