What can we say about Erykah that hasn’t been said before? Perhaps nothing, really. I think the praise and adulation we’ve been giving her for the past couple of decades has quite a bit to do with the fact that we respect Erykah’s visible commitment to be herself. And in being the woman that only she can be, she reminds and inspires us to not only discover but display what’s unique about ourselves. In what seems like effortless flyness, Erykah rocks the freshest turbans, the tallest hats, the smallest braids and the most ornate and eye-catching jewelry. I’ve been watching her Instagram page for the past couple of weeks and I just have to share the wonderment I’ve been seeing.

Artist Malakai has designed plenty of pieces Ms. Badu has added to her collection, including the memorable, feather, nose ring she wore while hosting the Soul Train Awards. He began his career in the underfund scene in San Francisco but is now based in Bali, Indonesia. In addition to providing pieces for Ms. Badu, he’s also worked with FKA Twigs, Rihanna, Missy Elliot and Beyoncé, to name a few. Both the nose piece and spiral chin cuff Badu is wearing go for about $319.
