American Plus-size model and socialite, Jordyn Woods recently updated her Instagram Page with pictures that are inspired British iconic singer, Sade Adu’s popular denim outfit.

Sade Adu, who is known for her braided hair and bold lip colours is a 61-year-old Nigerian-born, British musician said to be one of the most successful in history.

The picture featured Jordyn in a denim jacket and with a sleek braided ponytail and a bold red lip colour, reenacting a photo of Adu that looked just the same.

She captioned the photo “Smooth operator”, which is the name of a single, off her band’s ‘Diamond Life‘ album, that was released in 1984. This single was their first to get to the top ten of the Billboard 100 of that year.

Here’s are the pictures from Jordyn Wood:
