Style Icons: Female »Selda

Turkish Folk Singer

It was impossible not to pick Selda as my style icon this week. Her songs have been playing everywhere I can play them for the past week or so and it’s been so inspiring to discover such an innovative and strong-willed woman.

Her highly prolific, popular, and controversial career was unique for a woman in Turkey.

Her call for human rights, equality, and free speech sometime landed her in jail and caused loads of trouble with authorities. Never dissuaded, she continues to perform to this day and runs her own company in Turkey.

As you can see by this collection of her album covers, she had a beautiful presence. She reminds me in some photos of the gorgeous mom of a school friend, Mrs. Moscovici, which makes me like her even more.

I recommended her acclaimed 1976 self titled album this week. Listen to it, please!
