We have three words for you EGL Fashion Lovers: St. Beauty Band! St. Beauty Band is an American music group composed of two singers, Alexe Belle and Isis Valentino. The singing duo has been creating a buzz with their new age hipster vibe, amazing vocals and most importantly their fashion. St. Beauty Band is what R&B is missing! Sort of like the female version of Andre 3000 in a duo form.
This soulful duo aligned with a larger artistic group formed “Wondaland Art Society” which is a group of musicians that includes Janelle Monae, Jidenna, Roman Gian Arthur, and Deep Cotton.
Their love for music matches their love and eye for good threads. Vintage clothing brought the pair together in Atlanta. The two were co-workers at “Poor Little Rich Girl,” who held showcases in their basement. Isis offered to play the guitar and from then on the music magic begun. In a recent interview with www.essence.com the two stated the name “St. Beauty means a pure beauty that lives in everyone.” The duo exudes uniqueness and their style is like no other.“
St. Beauty Band swag is a mix of hippie meets couture; add a cup of cool and a spoon of classic. From rocking the classic denim on denim combo to quirky mixed prints, these beauties will have you searching high and low for mock turtlenecks and pencil skirts.
From 1960’s inspired miniskirts to perfectly floral frocks, here are some of our fav St. Beauty Band fashion moments! Along with inspired must have items from the soulful duo.

The perfect thing about St. Beauty Band is that we all can identify with their style! Sometimes it’s a jean and sneaker day, and then there are those days where you want to feel feminine and comfy in a dress!
Color blocking for the win, as a group of course! We love how they are mixing modern day pieces like crop tees with fashion pieces from the 90s. They are killing these skorts.
Skorts are definitely making a comeback this season! This polka dot skort from Zara can be dressed up with a button-up shirt or dressed down with a simple t-shirt. Be sure to grab a pair for the fall and spring!
In a recent interview with Elle.com the duo stated they live in thrift shops, which comes as no surprise because it’s actually where they met, Poor Little Rich Girl Thrift Shop.

You asked we answered!…
We love this turtle neck crop top from Missguided.com. To complete this look like Alexe, you can add a pair of jeans, wide-legged preferred or a pencil skirt, and a cute pair of pumps. Finish the look with gold accessories and a colored lip.

The hardest part about being in a group is finding individuals to complement each other. What we love about the pair is their ability to mesh well to complement each other when dressing, but yet still look different. We believe St. Beauty Band is the perfect match. From perfectly curled tresses to being dressed in all black, we love their style. We predict more soulful tunes and fashions “Best Dressed List” for the pair!
