When the ageless Pharrell recruits you to his team, when Jay-Z refers to you as “Lil Swag,” and when Kanye West wants your help designing his clothing line, you just have to be something special. You may not know Teyana Taylor for her many talents, but you definitely know her for two things; her envious locks and her distinctive urban chic style.
This September, the G.O.O.D. music artist graces Vibe Vixen‘s Fashion Issue and is even the stylist of the cover. It’s only right. In the issue, Teyana talks about a recent feud between herself and Rihanna’s “Navy” after a picture of Rihanna was mistaken for her. She credits herself with bringing back tomboy chic and we couldn’t agree anymore.
The first time we were introduced to the Harlem native was on MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 and for a very long time after, people wondered what she actually does aside from being so damn fly. Although her notorious sense of style hasn’t hurt, Teyana admits that she’s “ready to really, really start working” and “be bigger than the clothes and the fashion.”
