Remember when Eve was the tough, platinum blonde-haired pitbull in a skirt? She’s definitely softened up a lot since her Ruff Ryder days.
This week, to promote her new album, Lip Lock , which is in stores now, she caught up with The New York Post for a very girly and sophisticated photo shoot. The spread features Eve in some fierce heels and bright summery pieces from Nicholas Kirkwood, Mara Hoffman, Roberto Cavalli and Christian Dior that were a perfect match for the auburn-colored hair she’s rocking.
During the sit-down, she revealed that her album – which features guest appearances from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Sean Paul and Hip Hop newcomer Kitty – is dear to her because it features artists who she actually enjoys listening to:
I wanted to work with people that I actually enjoy listening to. And I wanted the people on this album to want to be there — not that it was a label calling in a favor. It felt right. It felt organic. Everything, every producer that’s on it, every side artist that’s on it, it all came together so easily. There wasn’t any frustration.
Lip Lock is also Eve’s first album in 10 years.
