R&B's reigning princess, Kehlani, fronts this month's cover of Galore Magazine — and she fully embodies the Sweet, Sexy, Savage look on the cover, below, serving major face juxtaposed by a casual ax. The spread is a hefty 16-images in which she brings the Brooklyn vibes, posing in a bodega and on the street, and it's giving us LIFE.
Kehlani wears an array of vintage labels including Baby Phat, Todd Oldham, and a head-to-toe Galliano-era Dior 'fit, below, that has us YELLING!!! All vintage threads were supplied by Gabriel Held, purveyor of the dopest vintage items from the '90s and early aughts. (His Instagram is also chock-full of #inspo, if you want to take a look.)
Is 2017 the year of the bodega shoot? If Rihanna and Kehlani's most recent covers are any indication, it's looking like a yes.
