G.O.O.D. Music’s Teyana Taylor is gracing the cover of VIBE Vixen‘s Premier Fashion Issue. The 21-year-old Harlem native was recently on the ‘net, for noting that she perhaps started the ‘tomboy chic’ look that Rihanna sometimes rocks. If you’ll recall, the two threw a few subliminal twitter shots at each other, but the spat quickly died down. Fast forward to the present day and Teyana’s chatting with Vixen about her edgy style, why she deserves more credit and working with ‘Ye . Peep a few excerpts below.
On if she created her tomboy chic,edgy style:
“Do I think I created this style? No. Did I bring it back? Yes! I branded snapbacks and sneakers. I made it sexy again. I’ve always been on my 90s shit, my tomboy shit, my sneakerhead sh*t. I do feel like I influenced [the style]. I made it okay for female artists to be comfortable in their skin, to be comfortable in street wear, to not always be glamorous 24/7. I would like to think I inspired a lot of artists.”
On how she began her look at an early age and being called ‘gay’ because of her style:
“I was 16; I was dressed my age. I had my Jordans, my fitteds, my snapbacks. I was typecast for being age-appropriate. Once I got older and matured more, it was still a ‘damned if you do, damned if you don’t’ situation. When I was dressed in my streetwear, I was gay. Then, I do one shoot, show some skin and now I’m not a virgin. I can’t win for losing.”
