R&B singer Dawn Richard, formerly of Diddy’s ‘Making The Band’ and ‘Dirty Money’ still manages to stay relevant without a major push. Dressed in designers brands such as Marc Jacob, Alexander McQueen, Forever 21, Sammy B Leggings and Bebe; Dawn did a photo shoot for Vibe Vixen. Styled by Tiffany Hasbourne and photographed by Karl Ferguson. During her brief interview; Dawn talks about fashion, being compared to Rihanna, what people can expect from her and pays homage to Brandy.
“Check the track record. [Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money] were always ahead of fashion trends,” she says. “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.”
On wanting to be reminiscent of Brandy:
“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 the Rihanna comparison:
“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].”
On what the fans can expect from her:
“You can expect the unexpected with me. I’m not what you wanted or what you thought I would be. I just wanna be me–more of movie, more epic.”
