Dawn Richard who has taken her own career into her own hands following Danity Kane and Dirty Money is proving why she's definitely going to be a force to reckon with.
"Puff said I wasn't going any further with Dirty Money, so I chose to keep writing my own story," said Dawn.
(Dawn is pictured above wearing Sammy B., wedge sneakers by Marc Jacobs, and bold accessories paired with white lipstick.)
Recently shooting with Vibe Vixen, Dawn talks fashion trends, other music stars and more.
On Fashion: Check the track record. [Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money] were always ahead of fashion trends. We were pushing the limits in everything. Danity Kane had five lead singers, which was unheard of, wearing Heatherette; we were doing 10-part harmonies. And Dirty Money had a mogul as a leader. It’s never been your typical aesthetic.
Her music Bible & other daring fashionistas such as Rihanna: I want to be reminiscent of Brandy. She will always be the vocal Bible to me; I’ll be the misfit of music, the rebel of music. (On Rihanna) Rihanna is Rihanna. I want the music and the style to be daring in itself. I’m pushing androgyny with the patterns and the presence of armor. It’s not too exaggerated, that’s what the sound is. There’s a presence of strength [in the image and music].
Dawn is currently working on her debut album Golden Heart. Peep her other shots below.
