Powerful. Sexy. Fierce. That was Teyana Taylor on the runway at NYFW. And she owned THA HELL out of it. On Saturday night, the multimedia multi-hyphenate delivered a jaw-dropping, finger-wagging, hella acrobatic (in several inches-high stilettos, no less!) catwalk performance, and suffice to say we’re bowing down.
The ridiculously talented performer and gorgeous goddess kept Philipp Plein’s Spring 2018 fashion show lit AF by setting the runway ablaze with bootylicious dance moves that would make Beyoncé proud. With recording artist Future providing the beats, Teyana tore down the catwalk in a lacy black bustier, leather garter, and pointed-toe ankle boots, popping, grinding, and whipping her blond hair — and OMG, WE WANT TO BE TEYANA!
But this isn’t the first time Teyana has slayed at New York Fashion Week. More specifically, at this New York Fashion Week. Yes, literally two days ago, Teyana strutted her stuff down Italian streetwear design house GCDS’s runway and… we. Just. Can’t. Even.
Surprised by all the attention her show-stopping GCDS walk received, Teyana told USA Today, “It’s so crazy, because I was like, ‘I’m short,’ and when I walked out I wasn’t even expecting people to clap. And when everyone went crazy I snatched my glasses off and flipped my hair, and then that became a meme. It was kinda dope to see that black girl magic, and to put my own ‘umph’ on it.”
“When I watched the video I was like, ‘Damn, I’m so extra,” she added, “But then I realized I’m not extra, I’m spicy, that’s all. I’m just spicy, I put a little spice in everybody’s life.”
All hail, Queen Teyana!
