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.

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.
