When I was about 19, I’d religiously sing along with her major hit Tyrone. Now, 15 years later, it’s not her golden voice that strikes me, but her fierce look and strong physique: yes ma’am, 42 year old neo-soulsinger Erykah Badu is the new face of Givenchy’s Spring 2014 collection, a line which celebrates Asian and African influences.
She was chosen by Riccardo Tisci himself, creative director at the 61 year old fashion house. How that happened? He called her one day and asked if she’d be interested. And she said yes.
“She’s an icon, come on!” Tisci said. “She is one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life. She’s got such a good sense of proportion, of colors.”
Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot the campaign, and here’s a first look on their magic work. Like! [EH]
It is finally Friday and that means Fun Videos for your Flunch Break! (Oh, how I love alliteration, even if it’s not done correctly). This time we present you with the latest video from Givenchy, who is bolstering its new Le Rouge campaign with arty graphic film. Pump up the volume and recharge with Givenchy.
And what about a little Marilyn Monroe inspiration while slowly getting into that weekend mood? In an interview in 1960, Miss Monroe gave her famous quote that she wore nothing but a few drops of Chanel No. 5 to bed. Chanel uncovered the recording of the interview and used it to make the fascinating Chanel No.5 Marilyn video
And last but not least, we suggest you put a big fat cross in your agenda on February 6th, because that’s when H&M will release a video featuring David Beckham playing action hero for his latest bodywear campaign. Yes, ma’am. The video is directed by none other than Guy Ritchie and sees the footballer running through the perfectly manicured streets of Beverly Hills dressed only in his boxer briefs.
Aaaaand… Back to work, ladies. [EH]
