Amazing Erykah Badu has been named the new face of fashion house Givenchy. The singer will front the label’s upcoming 2014 spring campaign.
The company’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci, has praised Badu for her unique style, insisting she was an obvious choice for the new collection, which boasts a combination of African and Japanese influences.
Tisci told Style.com, “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.”
He added, “She’s one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life.”
