Dawn Richard Channels Joan of Arc in ‘Goldenheart’ Photo Shoot

Dawn Richard

With a little over a week to go until her solo debut Goldenheart arrives, Dawn Richard unveils the bold and beautiful packaging shot by celebrity photographer Dimitry Loiseau.

The Dirty Money alum transforms into a warrior goddess in the black-and-white images inspired by Joan of Arc. She prepares for an avant-garde battle, incorporating an androgynous style into her high-fashion look.

Dawn completes her knighthood in Malgorzata Dudek, Laureluxe metal shoulders, an Una Burke leather bodysuit, and Jeffrey Campbell heels.

“The pictures go hand in hand with the lyrics and music,” says Dawn. “I want to get the hearts even more excited to hear the album.”

Goldenheart will be available in stores nationwide on January 15 featuring the single “’86.” A video is set to debut the same week.

    @AMOR, I mean late for what? Those shoes are still being worn and designed now. And the other outfits are 2013 designs from designers that you have t even heard of cause no artist is rocking them yet!!

    @CELINE DION, but those shoes aren’t jefferey. There Mugler. So for you not to know that and then hate and say this isn’t avante grade or high fashion just shows you clearly don’t know fashion! This is beautiful!

    She looks amazing (sans the boots) the last photo is everything. I love that she is cultivating a more consistent image. Her pictures on instagram are really stylish, this glam butch/andro glam look suit her and is very forward.

    Shame I’m not hype about this album. The theme concept needs to be laid to rest now, she just needs to keep this new image she has and make great music without the long winded explanations.

    @nt this?, huh? I mean that makes no sense! What long winded explanation? Her image hasn’t changed! The fact that you aren’t looking forward to the album says you haven’t heard the message. And that’s clearly what your saying you don’t want. Man society today. This is why music is dying

    LOVE IT! I am Living! The 2nd pic is VERY Androgynous. She looks like Luke James in the back, but still female features.

    The cover of her album is HIDEOUS but the other pictures are beautiful. She’s a beast visually, i don’t understand why would you make the worse picture the cover of your album.

    @lol, that’s your opinion. You feel it’s the worst. Other think its the best. That’s just opinions. I actually love her cover. So it’s just taste

    @youbmad, that’s the point of having variety. These pics are amazing! She is really killing this independent game. No indie artist is doing these quality pics !

    I’m so excited about this album. The date is SO close and the Hearts have really been patient. I preordered the album on iTunes last month and I’m heading straight to Walmart and Target to purchase physical copies. It’s gonna feel SO good to actually hold and look through the album. THIS is what we’ve been waiting for Hearts. WE ON! #HeartsHeaux #ItsAMovementNotAFanbase
