We heard the rumors of Miss Erykah Badu as the face of Givenchy, but were sworn to secrecy. We are super excited now able to reveal an image of the Spring 2014 campaign featuring Badu in all her glory, rocking one of Ricardo Tisci’s designs. The image is revealed as an exclusive from Style with statements about diversity in fashion, and Tisci one of our darlings tells it like it is:
I discovered a lot of black girls, and I’ve been always supporting them. For me, I grew up in a family and I grew up in a culture, an education, that we all are the same..”
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.
