Erykah Badu: new image for Givenchy

Yesterday, it was announced Erykah Badu was the new face of Givenchy.  Badu (besides being a “cleva” singer/songwriter) is a beautiful woman. She also has a slick sense of fashion. She deserves to get some model shine. Badu will represent  Givenchy’s Spring 2014 Collection, along with other fly women of color.  I was a wee bit disappointed to read it’s for the line that’ is “a mash-up of African and Japanese influences,”  they are always less hesitant to show women of color in these segments of fashion  :/ But, it’s still exciting to see Badu getting her due props in high fashion.  Analog girls in a digital world need love too…
