Erykah Badu Is The New Face of Givenchy


In what might be classified as the latest in his long string of efforts to court some of hip-hop’s royality, Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci has cast Erykah Badu in the ad campaign for the French brand’s Spring 2014 collection. The R&B singer models ponchos and dresses in the images, which were shot by fashion photographers Mert & Marcus (who also were recently in the spotlight for shooting Kate Moss’ Playboy spread.)

There are several interesting things about this campaign. First and foremost, Badu is not the first member of hip-hop/R&B royalty Tisci has taken a fondness to.

Now see, Miz RetroStank is so many different things (aren't we all?), but namely, she IS a Chistian, wife, mother, light, poetess, songwriter, actress, fashion show coordinator, scriptwriter, freethinker, artist, ATLien, and a weirdo with a love for culture and healing. She wants you to know that you can BE, DO, and HAVE anything and everything through Christ! She is native to the third coast, specifically the Southern kingdoms of Arkansas and Georgia. Sweet as pie, good as gold, and free as a bird, she is the only girl of three chill'un, and lawd, did that make for some imagination and shopaholic tendencies. Her father was an Army man and her mama is an infinitely enthusiastic and loving lady. In any case, exposure to different places, expectation of excellence, and a homeopathic childhood environment, majorly tilted her towards uniqueness; she was THAT girl who wore a dragon-print dress with a mandarin collar one day and a funky TLC-inspired look complete with ponytails and barrettes the next. So, by now, you're understanding that she is all about the spice of life. So sit back, buckle your seat-belt, and enjoy "the Funky ride all around the world" (in the words of Outkast).

Two Cents, anyone?
