WERQ: Kelly Rowland in Maria Grachvogel

Posted on May 30, 2012

Miss Kelly!



Kelly Rowland attends the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2012 in London in a Maria Grachvogel gown.

You spread your diva wings and fly away in triumph, Miss Lady. You are WERQing that shit and making every other bitch in the room eat it. They’re all crying now. You won. They should put a tiara and a sash that says “WERQING IT” on you.

      This is a hard dress to wear–shiny, prone to wrinkling, thin fabric–but WOW.  She looks absolutely stunning.  I can’t think of anyone else who pull this off.

    • jw_ny

      wow! stunning!  that’s how glamor is done.  :)

    • Le_Sigh

      She must’ve had a steamer in the limo ironing out any wrinkles up to the second she walked the carpet – she looks delish!

      • j_anson

        You know, it actually is pretty wrinkled at the hips. It’s just that it’s draping on her so well that you don’t even notice it; it comes across more as detailing than wrinkles.

    • suzq

      Maybe she rode over in her undergarments and put the dress on just before walking the carpet!

      • AnaRoW

         She’s clearly not wearing a bra and there’s a good chance she’s not wearing panties either. She either wore a robe or was naked in the limo.

        • Qitkat

          I’m showing my age, but I absolutely cringe at the idea of wearing no panties with any outfit, let alone a gorgeous gown.

          • TropiCarla

            Girl, I was born in the 80’s and I’m cringing right along wit ya. No underwear is just unacceptable.

            • Lisa

              I’m with you, ladies. No panties?  Gaaaaah….

            • meowing

              I’m probably older (and less toned) than all of ya, and I’d LOVE to be able to go pantyless (or is that Spanxless?)

      • janetjb

        I can imagine, for only a select few, an unused storefront turned into lovely large dressing rooms.  Five minutes away from the venue, women get dressed and then loaded into limos.

        • YAELS

           she also doesn’t seem to be holding a clutch! How does she do it? Kelly is a magic underwearless, clutchless, wrinkle-less diva of chic-ness.

      She does look really good. *grumble*

    • Joanna Schuth

      WERQ. Full stop. Absolutely flawless. 

    • Clueless_Jock

      Gorgeous woman.

      And not only the dress, she’s serving major FACE! Gorge hair and makeup. 

    • vanjar

      I’m going to look at her in this amazing dress while listening to her ‘Work’ Freemasons remix.

        Oh HELL yes!

      Wow, she looks like perfection. Everything is on point — dress, makeup, hair. Can’t see shoes but I bet those are great, too.

      Diva-tastic. And without the fishmouth J.Lo was giving the other day. Take note, Jenny, this is how it’s done!

    • AwesomeMargie

      Holy shit.  

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Gorgeous!  I just wished she would have stood in the car on the way over so the wrinkles weren’t there.  That was so minor, who cares!

    • Mirakel9

      Am I the only one who thinks she needs a little support/coverage of the girls??

      • margaret meyers

        I kind of like that those are her own breasts — normal sized and in the right location.

        • http://heartprintandstyle.blogspot.com Vivi N

          Technically, those are not really her *ahem* natural breasts but I get what you’re saying.

          • Twinzilla

            She got breast implants that size?  Good for her.

    • BeeBeauNYC

      I love her – I think she is so gorgeous.

    • margaret meyers

      It doesn’t has to be transparent to be sexy.

      DAYUM! When she does it right, she does the hell right.

    • Lina_bee

      Stylist WIN!

    • Qitkat

      I like everything but the painted eyebrows.

      • Lilithcat

        Ha!  I was just about to say the exact same thing.  Those eyebrows are channeling Joan Crawford.

      • Jessica O’Connell

         Agreed! I doubt her eyebrows need to be darkened at all, let alone to that extent! I feel like they’re looking at me!

      • mjude

        thats it!  i knew something was “off” with the makeup. she looks beautiful but agree about the eybrows. Lilithcat you are so right!

      • BazoDee

        I think it looks good in the far away shot but too much in the close-up. Eyebrows tend to disappear in photos -esp on darker women. 

    • colleenjanel

      Damn! I think Miss Kelly is on the Shelly O Arm Plan!

    • http://twitter.com/katshimmers Kat Wright

      Her makeup is also flawless! Fabulousness!

    • Rand Ortega

      Dear Janet Jackson (at the AMFAR gala in Cannes):
      Get it?

      Your fans

    • BrooklynBomber

      What a great dress, and she looks terrific.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      that dress is really stunning.

      i didnt know much, if anything, about its designer so i looked her up.

      if anyone is interested, a few very decent pieces of hers can be picked up on ebay right now for around two hundred bucks or less.

      had i anywhere to wear it, i might buy the black gown myself. i think it can be bought for around a hundred dollars. seeing how many wonders a more flamboyant version does for KR, here, anybody looking to look really good might at least, you know, take a look?

    • Susan Crawford

      She looks AMAZING!

    • girliecue


    • jilly_d

      SHIT!!!  WERQ WERQ WERQ!  WERQ of the year!

    • j_anson

      Um, yeah. Wow.

    • Sartorial_She

      I swear I think TLo are fuckin’ with us all. Hair and makeup are admittedly fierce. Full stop.

      But the bodice is not flattering–the collar looks as if it’s being pulled down by the weight of her dress. I can see her nips and/or aureola. Her mid-section is a wrinkled mess. And I don’t know what the hell is on the back of that skirt. Did she sit in paint?

      Not a WERQ for me. Not even an “in”. A clear OUT from this bitter kitten.

    • Judy_J

      All Hail the Glamour Queen!

    • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

      She looks amazing, wish I could see the back.

    • golspie

      Superb. Jada Pinkett-Smith needs these photographs taped to her mirror so her stylist knows how to do it right.

    • MzzPants

      Thank GAWD!  ‘Cuz the rest of them were a hot mess.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P2ANLRZ6YAVGONA36I2AQJYGI VicD

      Snaps up!

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Simply gorgeous.

    • GTrain

      WOW! She looks fantastic.

    • guest2visits

      She looks beautiful in this; the fabric looks like it might spot incredibly easy; but what the heck.

    • quiltrx

      That’s an incredible dress–and it suits her so well.  Wow.

    • samo_samo

      Fantastic! WERQ indeed!

    • ASK26

      Her skin looks incredible. 

      Love the dress on her.  Not quite figured out the fabric since it seems like you can see her nipple through the black fabric

    • TieDye64

      Stunning! I just love how this shows off her beautiful shoulders. And that face? Exquisite.

    • afabulous50

      Not only is the dress/body flawless – her makeup and hair are as well – You Go Girl!!

    • Call me Bee

      Fabulous.  My ony quibble is that, compared to *most* of the other attendees, she seems to be a bit overdressed for this event.  But if she were anywhere else…hooo boy it’s a gorgeous look. 

    • ballerinawithagun

      Fabulous. I will have to look for a back view. The obviously expensive shiny fabric & perfect sewing skills make this dress look glamorous instead of tacky. 

    • Lipchap

      She looks stunning, yes, but I think this looks like a project runway (granted, a challenge- winning or 2nd place) gown. The neck is fug and that bodice is fitted poorly…and ooh that fabric is a little cheap looking. 

    • BazoDee

      Oh dam she is rocking that! And her make-up is flawless!!

      WOW! OH MY! She is the Grace Jones of this millenium! Beyonce, move aside b*otch, Kelly girl is in da house!
      I love it. She looks amazing! 😀
