Get the Look: Kelly Rowland at Celebration Launch of “Here I Am”

Banging Kelly Rowlandcelebrated at the Moet Rose Lounge with eyelash grazing bangs wearing a Fall 2011 dress from Cushnie et Ochs and Alejandro Ingelmo pumps. Her shiny, sleek hair was the perfect acessory her nearly perfect physique.   Kelly is definitely one Blinging Babe.

We love her style—edgy without being over the edge, trend-setter, not trendy.  We enjoy her drastic changes as much as the subtle ones—short hair to long, curly hair to straight, hot pink dress to basic black—they all work.

And of course, we love the makeup.  The vibrant blue liner under her eyes, paired with pink eyeshadow on the upper lash line was new take on a traditional look.  Keeping the lips soft and subtle let her eyes do the talking.
