One of the main attractions I can’t wait to catch at Essence Festival this year is Andra Day! The sultry songstress has not only graced the covers of Essence magazine, but is slowly crafting her niche in the music industry with her one of a kind style and voice.CNN+Heroes+2015+Arrivals-andra-dayConstantly deemed Rihanna’s “look-alike”, Andra has stepped out of what we normally see on beauty looks in the industry. Instead of a “no-makeup” makeup look or even a ‘natural’ beat, she instead goes for a bold appearance every time she steps out.2016+Essence+Black+Women+Music+Red+Carpet-andra-dayA talented performer and singer, Andra Day has drafted a style aesthetic all her own. The best way to describe her look would certainly be ‘Old Hollywood’, with pinup curls paired with a dark cat eye and usual red lip.Andra Day 2016+Pre+GRAMMY+Gala+Salute+Industry+Icons+dSefGxQRUuGxSpike+TV+Guys+Choice+2016+Arrivals-andra-day

What I love most about Andra’s look is that it never appears forced, and as part of her personal brand, she has truly shown the world that your look goes hand in hand just as much as fashion!41st+Annual+Gracie+Awards+Gala+Arrivals-andra-dayNo matter what she wears on the red carpet, her look of a modern-day Hollywood doll always juxtaposes the beauty of her voice.Andra Day beamed on the red carpet of the 12th Annual MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit in California.On-The-Scene-Black-Girls-Rock-2016-Andra-Day2016+Essence+Black+Women+Music+Red+Carpet-andra-day

If you’re heading to Essence Festival, you’re in for a treat. A classic beauty both inside and out, Andra Day shows us that sometimes going Old Hollywood glam and retro might just be the new thing.
