Jill Scott has been a trendsetter and tastemaker since she stepped in front of the camera 20 years ago. When her first album Who Is Jill Scott: Words and Sounds Vol. 1 debuted, she was immediately on the lips of anyone who appreciates good music and creativity.

Her sex appeal was palpable through her tantalizing melodies. Men wanted her and women wanted to be like her. And today, she’s still that Jilly from Philly—same talent, same undeniable appeal.

When it comes to beauty, the award-winning singer, poet and actress has been serving everything from classic Black Hollywood glam to the eclectic style you can expect to see at Afropunk. She never fails to give us an epic Afro moment. And the only thing we love more than her big hair is her big beautiful smile—even when it’s adorned with gold grillz. There isn’t a lip color that she can’t wear with it either. She is, and will forever be, everyone’s beauty crush.

So as we celebrate the legacy that is Jill Scott, and 20 years of her inarguable beauty, style, talent and charisma, we salute some of the hair envy and beauty moments she’s given us in this past decade.
