A part of being a true fashion icon is being able to pull off looks no one else can. Well, the true fashion girls (and guys) know that Teyana Taylor is on the shortlist. When there’s a red carpet event that Teyana is attending, what she’s wearing is always going to be part of someone’s best-dressed list. It’s not just what she’s wearing but how it’s styled on her. She wears many hats in the entertainment industry and her skills as a creative director extend to her wardrobe over and over again.
Teyana Taylor is a singer, dancer, creative director, director, model, actress, and choreographer. Her professional career began when she choreographed the music video for Beyoncé’s single “Ring the Alarm” at the age of 15. Pharrell Williams took notice of her talent and signed her to his label Star Trak Entertainment under Interscope Records the following year as a recording artist. In 2007, she also appeared on MTV’s Sweet 16 where it showed her lavish 16th birthday party.
Under Pharrell’s label, she released “Google Me,” the lead single to her debut mixtape, titled From a Planet Called Harlem. The mixtape was released in 2009. Prior to her release from Pharrell’s label in 2012, she began working with Kanye West. She has two uncredited features on “Dark Fantasy” and “Hell of a Life” from West’s 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. She would later leave Pharrell’s label to go to West’s G.O.O.D. Music in 2012.
Taylor has released three studio albums in her career. Her latest LP is The Album, which was released in 2020 and became her second No. 1 on Top R&B Albums according to Billboard. However, in 2020, she announced to her fans that she was “retiring this chapter of my story” due to feeling underappreciated.
