FKA twigs has been making quite a name for herself. Last year, she released her first album, started dating Robert Pattinson, posed for a variety of magazines, and now she’s on the cover of V Magazine’s upcoming Music Issue. And twigs is pretty much naked. Without those chunky silver necklaces covering up her front, twigs would be having nip slips worse than Nicki Minaj’s. On the magazine cover, twigs also dons nude underwear and those signature braids of hers — a hairdo she attributes to her teenage years, when she would experiment with hairstyles.
“I grew up in a White area and I was the only mixed race girl in my school.,” she told Essence in an interview last month. “I didn’t have this straight-layered hair like my classmates. I had ringlets. As a teenager, I was always really experimenting with braids and finding things I could have and the girls couldn’t have and they would try to do and couldn’t do.”
Looks like she’s found something else the girls can’t have: a rockin’ cover for V Magazine. Well, Tinashe and Jessie Ware — and YOK alum Sam Smith! — also scored covers, but you know what we mean. Check out all four covers below.
FKA twigs is a music video genius, but the one she made for “Video Girl” was one of the best music videos of 2014. In case you missed it, watch it below, and keep your eye out for The Music Issue of V when it hits stands on January 15.
