TEYANA TAYLOR SAYS SHE PAVED THE WAY FOR RIHANNA & RITA ORA’S STYLE!! DO YOU AGREE??
Recently GOOD Music’s Teyana Taylor did an interview with Complex Magazine , to discuss meeting Kanye, being a teenager in the music industry , her solo album and her style. What stuck out the most to us in the interview is that Teyana credits herself with the way that Roc Nation’s princesses , Rihanna and Rita Ora dress.
Speaking of your style, you were one of, if the not the first, chick to bring back the more street look for women. You were wearing Jordans and BBC and fitted caps when you first came out. Now Rihanna and Rita Ora are on it. Do you feel like that’s your look?
I do feel like I influence a lot of artists. But the way I look at it is not in a negative way. I love them. When I came in the game, it wasn’t okay to be a girl and wear sneakers and hats and streetwear. They called me gay. Now the tomboy thing, it’s sexy. Rihanna and Rita Ora are fly and sexy. I’m happy I was able to pave that way. I love seeing our artists dressed like that. You ain’t gay if you throw on sneakers and a hat. Nobody can take that away from me and say, “Oh, she didn’t start that trend.” They all know. I’ve always been about this life and mixing kicks with high fashion on some ghetto chic shit.
We don’t think Teyana is dissing Rihanna or Rita at all, but she can’t claim she is the reason chicks are rocking Jordan’s and hats. She maybe to young to remember that Aaliyah, TLC and so many others had the tomboy look in the early 90′s! And as we know , fashion history repeats itself!
What are you thoughts?
