“I view my hair and clothes as functional art. I’m my own stylist and I love it, but I am not trying to make a statement.” – Erykah Badu
“Although I’m known for my long, colorful locs, I still don’t take my hair too seriously. I experiment a lot, dyeing it and constantly switching styles to grab attention. My hair is one of my best accessories and changing it helps express who I am.” – Ledisi
“We all have the option of how we want to express ourselves through our life, hair, style or whatever we decide. We shouldn’t be pigeonholed into any one category.- Solange
Erykah always makes a statement, even when she doesn’t try. This is Solange and Ledisi’s first Essence cover and the fourth for Erykah. Mark my words I WILL DEFINITELY have a career at Essence Magazine

After hearing the song ” I decided” over that insane beat produced by Pharrell…..I was hooked! As she made her rounds to promote Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams I was drown in not only by the music but by her vintage style and fashion. 2008 , the week the album dropped I went crazyyy all over Vegas to find it.
After about the 6th store I was successful not because she was selling out but not to many stores even bothered to sell it because she wasnt the popular Knowles …then Now , Everything about Solange screams original and very outside the box , this is what I believe stars are MADE off plus she is in control of her destiny and became an style icon and role model. Many ppl thought I was insane and always called her wack , talentless but I bet they jumping on her d*ck now ijs They was blind then but now I know they can see the stylish naturalista on the red carpet showing up and showing out #GAG. She is a true fashion trendsetter and a force to be wrecking with! She walks to the beat of her own tune and while everybody does the same ol sh*t , shes CLEARLY STANDING IN A LANE ALL HER OWN and the world is finally paying attention
Knowles currently signed a modeling contract with Next Model Management. She has been honored by the American Society of Culture Critics for her contributions to music and fashion.
