Esperanza Spalding has arresting natural beauty to go with her extraordinary musical talent. The Grammy award-winning jazz singer and musician is showing off the former in a beautiful shoot for the November 2012 issue of Spain’s S Moda Magazine.

Draped in fluid floor-length gowns, vibrant long-sleeve shift dresses and sharp, structured coats, Esperanza radiates beauty and self-assured femininity in poses that range from quirky to confident.

We think her beauty look, a voluminous afro, thick eyebrows and ruby red lips, is the most arresting part of her flawless photo shoot.

What do you think of Esperanza for S Moda Magazine, Clutchettes?

    She looks great. And I like her even more because she beat Justin Beiber for the Best New Artist grammy.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, and super talented. Saw her in concert, and she was so engaging too. I thought she was just going to stand on stage and sing and play, but she talked about the songs, and interacted with the audience a bit as well.
