Erykah Badu Is The New Givenchy Fly Girl

Erykah Badu’s undeniable beauty will be taking the world by storm.

Riccardo Tisci and his Givenchy brand have selected the R&B/Soul diva to front their new campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus.

“Erykah, she’s an icon—come on!” Tisci told “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.”

Badu will front Givenchy’s spring 2014 collection, which is a mash-up of African and Japanese influences.

This is a great look for Ms. Badu and an inspiration for black female models.
