We love the idea of shorts suits and wearing heels with shorts. So you know this polished and floral look Kelly Rowland wore while watching “X-Factor” auditions in Liverpool had our names written all over it. Kelly’s large floral print shorts are Stella McCartney, but we found a less expensive option. Check it out… Keep reading »
As one-third of a top-selling girl group and Beyonce’s former shadow, Kelly Rowland has had a difficult time coming into her own, while remaining in the public eye. So occasionally she wears something to get attention. How else can we explain these chain mail pants, which give her legs the look of droopy tree trunks (if such a thing were possible)? She could have just gone without the chain mail, but then she’d look like every other pop star, and that would defeat the point. Keep reading »
“I’m very happy with myself. For me, my story behind it was making young people actually think before they do something. For me it was waiting. It’s the message I actually had to say. When people found out about it, one person asked me and I just couldn’t lie. I didn’t feel the reason to lie. I’m proud of myself that I waited. That’s 10 years I was like ‘I hate this top. It does not fit. I hate this top.’ … When I initially thought about that, I was 17 years old. That’s a ridiculous age to make a decision to do something different to your body.”
– Kelly Rowland‘s message to young people is to wait until they’re older to alter their bodies. The funny thing is, none of her fans knew she was waiting 10 years to get breast implants until she actually had the surgery. Why can’t celebrities just say, “I really disliked this part of my body and had the funds to change it, so after years of frustration, I did something about my insecurity,” and leave the whole message to young people excuse out of it? But at least Kelly has the courage to admit she has breast implants, unlike some other celebs who altered their bodies at a young age and pretend otherwise. [TheYBF] Keep reading »
So it was Kelly Rowland‘s turn for a Derek Blanks-shot alter ego photo. She’s portraying a rather disappointing “Rosie the Riveter” and a damsel in distress. I think Kelly could have pushed her “acting” a little further instead of going for the pretty shot. [The Young, Black & Fabulous] Keep reading »
We award Kelly Rowland (seen here in the tents at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week) the Hair Model Citizen Award for keeping it nice and simple by sporting soft, natural-looking (though we know that always takes work) hair. To get a similar look, apply Curls’ Curl Gel-les’c to wet hair, create a thick braid, allow to air dry and take it out. [New York, 9/18/09] Keep reading »
“The Fashion Show” is supposedly about “real fashion, for real women.” I never bought the whole “real women” shtick and remained even more unconvinced after last week’s episode when all the contestants balked at the challenge of designing an outfit for a woman who weighed in at over a whopping two lbs. Whatevs, I don’t really care if the show is about “real people.” Reality TV is nothing about real people anyway. I want fabulous and disastrous fashion (in equal doses, please), snarky judges and crazy contestants. I don’t think I am asking for much, especially considering the fact that this is “The Fashion Show.” And yet, last night’s episode was oddly devoid of fashion. Sure there was fabric, but fabric clearly took a backseat to contrived drama and Kelly Rowland’s rant. Keep reading »
We are all going through major “Project Runway” withdrawal now that the show has been moved to Lifetime. Every episode of the thrown-together Bravo knock-off “The Fashion Show” is equivalent to a so-so episode of “Runway,” but the real nostalgia comes from the longing for “Runway”‘s host Heidi Klum. Here are the top four reasons why Kelly Rowland is no Heidi Klum.

In the midst of New York Fashion Week, we’ve learned a few more details about Bravo’s upcoming show, “The Fashion Show” (the “Project Runway” replacement). The show will pit professional designers against each other for a chance to have their designs sold at a yet-to-be-named major retail outlet. Who will be judging them? Well, a studio audience will have a say, along with hosts Isaac Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland (formerly of Destiny’s Child), and judge Fern Mallis, SVP of IMG Fashion (which runs New York Fashion Week).
So, Mizrahi takes Michael Kors’s place as the “top American designer,” and Mallis fills Nina Garcia’s shoes as the fashion insider. Does that mean Roland is supposed to take over Heidi Klum’s role? If so, she’s gonna need a new, more fitting catchphrase — auf Widersehen just wouldn’t work. Keep reading »
