Maria Grazia Chiuri, Christian Dior’s Artistic Director, was inspired by Nigerian novelist and feminist icon, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s famous TEDx talk that was featured in Beyoncé’s Flawless music video.

The famous t-shirt can be seen on lots of celebrities and fashion bloggers such as Rihanna, Natalie Portman, Lana El Sahely and Chiarra Ferganni. The price tag for the t-shirt stands for $710; however, it is noted that a portion of the sales will be donated to Rihanna’s charity, The Clara Lionel Foundation.
