Ms. Badu rolled up on the carpet in a dramatic ensemble that featured an extra poofy skirt and topped it all off with her signature high top hat. Except this time, she decorated her hat with a gold headpiece that made her the center attraction. She kept it clean in all white everything, looking real goddess-like on the carpet. Ms. Badu has her own eclectic style and we love how she adds her own twists to her look and still slays.
