Erykah Badu & Ricardo Tisci Channel the 70s


Eclectic soul singer Erykah Badu was recently lensed for the inside pages of InStyle’s 20th Anniversary issue.

The September edition of the magazine, which features actress Julia Roberts on the cover, was creatively helmed by photographer Ricardo Tisci, who calls himself a Badu “super fan.”

Tisci personally called on Erykah for her 70s-inspired photo shoot, just as he did earlier this year when he hand-picked the singer to represent Givenchy in their Spring 2014 campaign.

Erykah looks stunning in a series of high fashion shots that harken back to the funkadelic days of the late 1970s.

Clothes aside, what I love most about Badu’s look is her braided do which is so very Peaches of Peaches & Herb.

Erykah called the shoot a “tribute to the past,” via Twitter, saying it was the music of the 70s that inspired her to become an artist.
