The French haute couture house has quickly become the talk of the fashion blogs following the announcement of its Spring-Summer 2014 brand ambassador. Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci chose the infinitely charismatic soul singer Erykah Badu. The two first images from the campaign were unveiled on Givenchy’s brand new Instagram campaign, showing the forty-something actress in a striped long dress and a tribal-inspired tunic.
The campaign, which will soon be presented in its entirety, was shot by famous fashion photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Erykah Badu, who has released six studio albums, is already a familiar face in the world of fashion and beauty. She lent her charismatic charm to Tom Ford fragrances for two campaigns in 2008 and 2009.
