While unicorn braids have been a go-to for a few in the past couple years, Alicia Keys took the indie fav centerstage with the Elle Brasil September 2017 issue that featured not just one cover, but four! Opting for simple pulled back looks, Keys demanded the camera with a sunburst pairing of coral and fuschia. A dramatic turn from the mousey browns we’ve come to expect, the look was met with much fanfare and ushered in a cry for confidence, self-expression, and acceptance.
"To this day, every time I get out of the shower to get dressed, I swear the first thought that comes into my head is, what can I wear that won’t cause too much attention when I go pick up Egy, or head to the store, or go shopping, or visit a friend, etc. And just the other day it hit me! OMG! Alicia!!! Why are you choosing to be that person?? That is so old and outdated!! STOP!! I don’t have to try to go unnoticed. I don’t have to fit in. I don’t have to close up my thoughts and only speak my truth through songs!" - Alicia Keys
