Erykah Badu is, in a word, eclectic. The Queen of Neo-Soul blends jazz, hip-hop, and R&B with a Billie Holliday flare, and literally tops it all off with a bold piece of head-wear.

Besides her music and the occasional scandal, Badu is most known for her unique sense of style. For a while, you couldn’t recognize the “On & On” singer unless she was wearing a colorful turban. Over the years (which included, lest we not forget, a relationship and baby with Andre 3000), she let her hair down, so to speak. On her 42nd birthday, we’ve decided to highlight her second most famous piece of headgear: A Top Hat.

Go on with your Badu self.
