Kelly Rowland at the “Think Like A Man Too” World Premiere

Posted on June 10, 2014

We’d never have credited her with being able to work the shit out of a fierce ever-so-slightly butch look, but there it is.

Everything here is working fantastically for us, from the suit to the killa shoes and even the earrings, which strike us as perfectly on-point. The only thing that’s not working is that top, which is … well, kinda horrendous, actually. So bad that it ruins the look. It doesn’t even look like a garment. It looks more like a scarf trying to pass itself off as one. We don’t mind the boobiness so much as the big white shapeless thing that makes it look like she can’t button her jacket. Who thought that was going to look good in pictures?

      It kind of reminds me of Carmen (Was that her name?) on the first Menswear challenge on Project Runway who just draped a piece of cloth around her model and said how it represented the shirt she would have made if she had had the time.

      • MarissaLG

        Yes! That’s exactly what I thought of too.

      • Kent Roby

        (after looking it up): Yes, Carmen Webb; she was auf’ed for that mess. Fellow contestants included Christian Siriano, Chris March, Jack Makenroth, Sweet P, Jillian Lewis, and Rami. That was a heck of a season.

        • Thomas

          Rami is/was hot.

          • Kent Roby

            I’d totally let him drape me! Of course, I’m biased. (Thanks, folks, I’ll be performing all weekend!).

            • Thomas

              I totally read that as a play on words lol

        • Jacob Bowen

          Chris March and his human hair….I still shudder/giggle every time I think of it.

          • Kent Roby

            That never bothered me like it did the judges; it was his way to get around the no-fur rule, and using wigs on clothing is no “weirder” than wearing them on one’s head. I would guess that he was inspired by the hair dress in “Hedwig”.

    • Glam Dixie

      This is not flattering at all to the baseballs someone stuck in her chest. The suit itself is very pretty but something is going on with her makeup that I don’t like but I can’t put my finger on what.

      • Sartorial_She

        I agree regarding the implants. I keep thinking she’ll be less likely to continue putting them on display once they’re not quite so new. It’s getting really tiresome. Won’t the novelty please wear off already?

        I think her makeup actually looks great, but perhaps a slightly bolder lip was called for?

        • Glam Dixie

          I think it actually is the lips that are off.

        • MilaXX

          Unless she’s gone up a size, her boobs aren’t new. She’s had implants for some time.

        • jen_vasm

          She recently announced she’s pregnant. Shapeless top mystery explained.

      • Kent Roby

        I wish she had worn this to Fox’s “Girls Night Out”, ‘cuz they are!

      • colleenjanel

        For all the makeup on her face, there’s no actual color. It’s just sort of flat. I think a lip color would have helped, or a different shade of eyeshadow.

      • demidaemon

        Same here with the make-up. personally, I’m thinking it’s the lip color. It’s too dark and it is causing her skin tone to look more off than it should.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      I like the notion of a slinky top with the suit, just not this particular one.

      • Darcy H

        That’s exactly how I feel, I’m not opposed to the idea of a slinky, not so structured top, but this one is just not cutting it. Everything else about this look is killa though.

      • misstressofsylar

        She’s just announcedshe’s pregnant which may explain why the shape of that top.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          Well played on her part; I don’t think a single BK was talking about a potential bump. Or even a pasta lunch for that matter.

    • sugarkane105

      She paid a lot of money for those boobies, so she’ll be damned if a traditional shirt is gonna cover them up.

    • Danielle

      Titscrepancy. Headsuit looks stellar.

    • j_am

      The fake boobs are just too distracting. The rest is adorable.

    • sienna elm

      LOVE that necklace!!

      • Nancer

        Me too! I am so happy to see properly deployed jewelry on the red carpet. So tired of seeing celebrities without!

    • hughman

      That shirt has seen a lot of wet t-shirt contests.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        And it looks as if it’s been stretched waaaaaay too much to be worn in public ever again. Too bad Kelly decided that the girls needed so much air. The top detracts from her face and a good suit.

    • MilaXX

      A simple white T would have been sexier. Love the hair, it reminds me of old Kelly back when Destiny’s Child first came on the scene. I’d cut someone for that necklace.

      • SugarSnap108

        That necklace is giving me palpitations.

    • SugarSnap108

      Yep, it’s all working except the open-heart-surgery drape. Love the shoes and necklace, and her head looks great.

    • Anna

      Oh Kelly, just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Hate that plunging top, ruins an otherwise perfect look.

    • Nancer

      I agree about the shirt, but dayum! She looks hot!

    • imspinningaround

      The drapey top may be concealing a burgeoning baby bump.

    • Laura Renee

      I think you’re missing the word “not” in this sentence: “The only thing that’s working is that top”

      God damn, that face, though. And hair. Am swooning.

    • Alyssa

      Love the necklace, love her hair. Not loving the garment trying to pass as a shirt!

    • OhSheila

      Word on the street is she’s pregnant. Totally looks like a blousy ass top made to distract from a bump to me.

      • MilaXX

        She just confirmed on IG that she is indeed expecting.

    • JynxTheCat

      she cant do a look without unnecessarily trashing it up. I think some ladies think this makes them relevant.

    • Wink

      Maybe the top wasn’t designed to be covered by a jacket; I’d like to see that. Also, with her short hair and display of boobage, she’s channeling 1990s Toni Braxton.

      • MilaXX

        She and Toni wore short hair in the 90’s.

      • Imasewsure

        I was thinking Natalie Cole but I think you are right…. it is definitely more Toni. Cute cut on all of them

    • shopgirl716

      I realize this is old news but ever since I watched her in that Project Runway knockoff with Isaac Mizrahi I really can’t stand her. What is she even doing anymore besides showing up on red carpets? And I disagree strongly on the shoes.

      • MilaXX

        She still puts out music. Her last CD this past winter did okay on the R & B charts. In fact I think I saw recently that she’s recording a new CD and Bey & Michelle are making a cameo in one of the videos.

      • Ediths_Head

        Agreed on the shoes. I really just can’t with any woman who wears a lock!

    • Dollhead

      She looks better in this look than some I’ve seen, but I don’t like this type of outfit (short black pants, heels, white top of some sort, black jacket – a casual lady tux?) at all.

    • kimmeister

      I’ve hated those padlock pumps whenever JLo has worn them, but they are perfect with this suit. Her hair looks fabulous. I don’t love the boobiness of the top, but the greater sin is the pouchy belly that makes it look like an alien is trying to jump out.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I would wear all of this except the shoes (I prefer a rounder toe). The shirt isn’t the right style to wear under this jacket, but it’s not killing the look for me. I’d like to see a little color – maybe on her lips?

    • gsk241

      However much she paid for that perfectly symmetrical rack, it’s not enough. Yowza!

    • Terri Terri

      Chest looks kinda concrete to me.

    • Qitkat

      If I ignore the chest and scarftop, she looks great. Killer necklace. I’m feeling a bit of Robin Roberts here.

    • KT

      She looks amazing! The shirt is bad, but it definitely doesn’t ruin the look. Too fierce to touch.

    • R.A.

      Can her makeup artist lend Mindy Kaling a hand?

      • Introspective

        word. mindy needs to go to the mua’s with experience fixing up the black and brown girls’ faces. cause hers seems to be struggling with skintone matching. with horrendous results…

    • Imasewsure

      I miss her old boobs… that being said, she looks cute (sans the scarf blouse) and that hair really suits her

    • ashtangajunkie

      Hate the top but her face is flawless. Everything else is fantastic.

    • e jerry powell

      That is some BUTCH REAL ESTATE Realness. She will sell you a condo in fifteen minutes after the premiere. That is some serious high-income look.

    • Brookwater

      Kelly is hiding a baby bump under all of that fabric. I just heard that she announced it via instagram. Congrats to Kelly!

    • Sabin

      Bolt-on boobs will NEVER look good, regardless how they’re presented. Hate.

      But love the rest of it.

    • MaggieMae

      Wow. That hair style looks great on her. Chic outfit.

    • BLauD

      Now that I’ve seen she’s pregnant, the look is making a lot more sense. It’s got “distract and confuse” written all over her belly area.

    • Bernadette

      She should have ditched the shirt and buttoned the blazer, how fierce would that have been?!

    • macwell

      Get your grown butch woman on gurl – get it! :)

    • DuBey2

      I’m taking this pic to my hairstylist next month. Love that hair!
