Now, how did I miss this?
Erykah Badu is set to become the face of Tom Ford's forthcoming fragrance. I just read it in the New York Times profile on Erykah, The Mind of a One-Woman Multitude (very entertaining), but apparently it was reported first at Vogue UK.
I've done some checking and no one seems to know the name of the new fragrance BUT... and this is a big BUT - Erykah herself has already revealed the name! My pal Najwa Moses got the scoop during a brief Q&A with Erykah a few days ago and posted it. Erykah told Najwa that she really feels good about the fragrance, that Tom is a very good friend of hers and that he is a "passionate artist " about his craft.
Watch Najwa's video below to hear the name of the fragrance - and Erykah's answers about her style choices and fashion icons.
