Erykah Badu is more than a singer, actress, or influencer. She’s an experience.

Underneath her soulful melodies, relatable lyrics telling us to call ‘Tyrone,’ and occasional online shade-throwing, is an expressive artist who thrives on the unexpected, the quirky, and the downright mysterious. This is true for everything from her lyrics and on-screen appearances to her personal style.

Erykah will always ‘give the girls what they want’ while keeping us guessing. She reminded us of this on April 11 at GQ Magazine’s Second Annual Global Creativity Awards.

Erykah Badu gives ‘main character energy’ in Marni.

Held in New York City, the ‘GQ’ event was created to highlight, honor, and uplift some of the world’s most out-of-the-box, innovative, and dynamic influencers, like Erykah. The event’s red carpet brought out the who’s-who of culture and style.

It’s no surprise that Erykah led the pack.

Several cameras flashed, sounding like a round of applause as the “Bag Lady” singer arrived. Posing in front of a deep purple background, Erykah Badu wore an over-the-top look from Marni with couture details, multiple colors, and exaggerated accessories.

Erykah took the form of a canvas as the major details of her fit appeared painted on. The 53-year-old’s fit included a black-and-white brushstroke leather trench, a red-and-white headwrap, and a white-and-yellow striped oversized bag.

Elevating the look for all the fashion girlies, Erykah topped off her look with a fur top hat with red and black striped paint strokes. See Erykah’s ensemble below.
