Dawn Richard manage to pull it off on the cover of SFPL's January Digital issue. In the spread she wears a high bun and long braids while modeling leather and Christian Louboutins, she also speaks on her latest project.
I feel like now we’re in a time where we are very divided, angry, and we hate a lot. I think with my music what I am trying to do is build an army of people who fight for something together instead of against each other. With that inspiration I wanted you to have the “Armor On” to guard yourself and prepare for the battle. What goes on in the album is that we actually stand together and fight for one another on the front line and we’re not fighting against each other, we’re fighting with each other for the people who don’t believe that we’re beautiful enough, great enough, brown enough, or white enough.
