The beauty shines in four different covers for ELLE Brasil September 2017 issue while rocking colorful pink and orange box braids paired with a barely there face beat. We first caught a glimpse of the beauty’s dramatic new ‘do late July and we’re super excited to rock the look on such a broad scale.

“One cover was not enough for our September issue, which raises the debate of what it’s like to be an influencer today,” the glossy shared on Instagram. “We arrived at four good definitions, which Alicia embodies as no one else by using her image and talent”, including “Be Strong”, “Be Cool”, “Be Real” and “Be Yourself”.

The powerful tag lines also coordinate with four different looks, including a braided top knot, low braided bun and high ponytail, styled by Marcia Hamilton. The singer also addressed her #nomakeup movement, stating “In reality, it is not just about whether or not to use makeup. It is more about living and being as you feel well and exploring it.”
