Helen Folasade Adu

This past weekend named Sade their beauty icon of the month; I'm so glad and I think it's about time. When I was younger (about 10 or 11) my older brother and sister would always listen to her songs and my narrow, childish mind couldn't see the appeal of Sade's deep, sultry vocals - they just made me sad. But now (thank God) I'm all grown up (ish) and I can finally appreciate the rasp in her voice, the depth in her songs, and her influence on fashion and music world wide. 
If you ever put on a bold red lip, have a sleek 'push back' with a long braid and gold hoops you are channeling Sade, whether you know it or not.
