The new face of Givenchy

Erykah Badu turns muse

Riccardo Tisci knows how to put on a good show, and not just on the catwalk. For evidence see his latest Givenchy campaign – a journey from Japan to Africa through America with Erykah Badu is the protagonist.

Joined by a cast of models – Maria Borges, Asia Chow, and the new name to know, Eboni Riley – the soul singer who shot to fame in the 90s leads the line-up as Tisci's 'dream icon.'
