Givenchy Spring Ad Campaign — Featuring Erykah Badu


Erykah Badu

Eboni Riley

Erykah Badu, the new star of Givenchy’s latest ad campaign, along with Eboni Riley, Tina Chow and Maria Borges, makes this the first campaign of its kind to exclusively use women of color.

The neo soul singer, Badu, whose image Tisci had in mind when he was designing the Spring 2014 collection — a mash-up of African and Japanese influences — looks gorgeous, in an African influenced poncho, in the first images of the Mert & Marcus photographed campaign.

“Erykah, she’s an icon—come on!” Tisci said by phone from Paris. “What I want to do with my advertising campaign is spread the love. Already now it’s been three seasons that I’ve been using people who express something—they are great artists, or beautiful women, or stylish women, or models that I really believe in. It’s kind of a family portfolio.”

Considering the accusations of racism on runways and the recent racial discrimination lawsuits against Barneys and Macy’s, it’s fantastic and much-needed to see a major fashion brand set an awesome example of inclusion. But then again, Tisci reminds us that Givenchy has consistently championed diversity!

Congratulations to all the 2014 Golden Globe nominees!!
