Erykah Badu Is The New Face Of Givenchy’s Spring 2014 Campaign!

Erykah Badu has been selected as a model for Givenchy‘s new Spring 2014 campagin!

Many media sites are claiming that the decision was made in part as a reaction to a fashion industry tendency to use predominantly Caucasian models.

Riccardo Tisci, the label’s creative director, says that Badu’s collaboration with the Givenchy campaign makes perfect sense seeing as she was the one of the hallmark inspirations behind the collection featured in the campaign.

Riccardo added, “She is one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life.”

“It’s 2013…At the end of the day, why are not so many black girls or Latin girls in shows? When you have an American president who is black! When I see this happening, it’s quite sad, I think. People can be so avant-garde, so advanced, but actually not, because people are still making differences between skin color.”
Congratulations to Erykah Badu and Riccardo Tisci for breaking down barriers in high-end fashion!
