If everyone is going right, you can bet Erykah Badu is going left. The genetically gifted
If everyone is going right, you can bet Erykah Badu is going left. The genetically gifted soul singer has always played the fashion game on her own terms. The quintessential cool bohemian made her fabulous video debut barefoot and wrapped in a tablecloth from head-to-toe. Talk about individual style. A ballsy move that would come to mark the Grammy-Award winning singer’s personal style philosophy of “do you.” The minute you think you’ve got her figured out, Badu switches it up. She’s gone from ethereal, folky dresses, skirts and headwraps to platform boots, leather pants, top hats and a huge afro. She continued to challenge our preconceived notion of who she is when she was spotted wearing a long Pocahontas wig. In 2008 Tom Ford chose Badu to be the model for his White Patchouli fragrance. The result was an arresting, black and white image that featured a stunning Badu. From flower child to fashion star, Badu keeps re-defining her look.
