Lion Babe’s Jillian Hervey on the Best Style Advice She Ever Received from Her Mom (Actress Vanessa Williams)
Kris Connor

Lion Babe’s front woman Jillian Hervey may be known for her show-stopping mane, but it turns out the beauty has picked up some words of wisdom from her famous mom, actress Vanessa Williams.
“Know your shape. That has always been key,” she shared as we caught up with her at the 2016 ESSENCE Festival.
The dancer-turned-singer revealed that although her style is different from her mother, it’s the tips and tricks that have stayed with her.
When it comes to her personal style she says that she’s a “die hard vintage girl” and wouldn’t mind raiding Naomi Campbell’s closet if she had the chance.
“She’s been around for decades and she’s a supermodel. It’s the cream of the crop of every decade.”
We definitely agree with that one.
