Erykah Badu In Rick Owens – 2018 Soul Train Awards

Erykah Badu In Rick Owens - 2018 Soul Train Awards

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Erykah Badu on the red carpet. But, she came back with quite the stylistically progressive vengeance at the 2018 Soul Train Awards on Saturday (November 17) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Although she later took to the stage to perform, the 2018 Legend Award winner started the performance early with this radical Rick Owens Spring 2019 ensemble that fully upheld the entertainer’s affection for all things over-the-top.

There was something ever so stylistically sinister about this extravagant power look, where the laser-cut cage robe and metal scaffolding of the headpiece also took on a rebellious regal tone for the reigning Queen E.B.

More than anything, it was a fascinating artistic statement — no matter which way you slice it.

    On a positive note, here is an example of red eyeshadow that does not make the wearer look deathly ill. That is all.

    I feel like I need this outfit explained before judging it. At least it’s intriguing.

    When TRYING WAYYYY TOO HARD goes wrong:-(
    What happened to that gorgeous soul singer that was wearing stunning African dresses and headwraps? That was the Erykah Badu that I remember. This new one looks like she should be wearing a tin foil!

    I’m confused. It’s ridiculous and fascinating at the same time. Don’t know whether to love or hate it.

      +1 She’s one of few that I’m just like ‘That’s her’ whatever random outfit she’s got on.

    • Jas November 21, 2018 at 1:51 am #

      +2 but I appreciate that she fully committed to the whole look.

    WTH is going on here??
    I don’t even mind the jacket/robe thing….but underneath just doesn’t work with it properly….should of been an all black sheath or something.
    But all the headgear?????? was she making a certain political or musical or personal statement with this? and what. Its pretty ugly looking.

    I am always entertained by Erikah Badu ever since I saw her perform in 2003 at an InStyle event. She looks ridiculous (I find myself wondering if she can speak with that headgear) but I am highly fascinated and entertained.

    I have no idea what’s going on here.

    My orthodontics included a nighttime mouthpiece like EB’s ~ and a friend’s car accident insured the halo having to be worn awhile. Bad memories. Not a fashion statement at all.
