Givenchy names Erykah Badu Newest Face for Spring 2014 Campaign

According to Style.com, who broke the story, Tisci had known Badu slightly but had never worked with her. Still, he said, he’d had her image in the back of his mind when he was designing the Spring 2014 collection, a mash-up of African and Japanese influences.

He spoke of her eccentric style, saying:

“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. Erykah, she’s an icon—come on! 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.”

Glad to see a afro-centric black face such as Erykah who speaks volumes of her consciousness and I don’t give a fck what other people may think attitude to grace this lines 2014 campaign.

Now, we just need to get over the hump of high fashion being only tall and skinny models.
