As Brown Sista previously reported, singer Erykah has been tapped by the great Tom Ford himself, to be the face of his new women’s fragrance. Well, now we can tell you the name of that fragrance is “White Patchouli” and to your right is the first print advertisement featuring Erykah to make it’s debut. Several images of Erykah have been shot for this campaign and more will officially debut this September in US Magazine. So what do you guys think of the ad? I love it and though many balked at the idea of Erykah as a model, I knew this was right up her alley. Erykah possesses a gorgeous bone structure and can change her look at the drop of a hat. She is a chameleon and that is truly what great models are made of.
Singer Erykah Badu has a lot on her plate these days. The “Honey” diva is not only prepping for the release of her new album this month, but is also set to hit the road on a summer tour as well. Now comes word from Vogue Magazine that the sista has also been handpicked by Tom Ford to be the face of his new, and as yet un-named, fragrance. And though some may think Erykah is selling out for hooking up with corporate fashion bigwigs- I think her diversifying herself and her portfolio is a good thing. If ever a face was meant to be seen in print ads, it is Erykah’s. She has a great sense of style and fashion and that is probably why Tom chose her when he could have so obviously used any celebrity or model he wanted.
