Kelly Rowland In Cushnie et Ochs – “Here I Am” Album Launch Party

Kelly Rowland was supported by her girls Beyonce Knowles (in Lanvin) and Michelle Williams for the launch party of her new album, “Here I Am.”

The soiree was held in the Moet Rose Lounge at the top of The Standard Hotel in New York City last night.

Kelly made sure she wasn’t in anyone’s shadow by wearing an uber sexy Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2011 dress with a central split.

I wish she’s pulled her hair off her shoulders so we could get a good look at the sleek black halter with cut-out details in the bodice.

Her dress was teamed with a pair of very heavy Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks, which have been worn by her former Destiny’s Child band-mate LeToya Luckett to the 2009 BET Awards.

Blue eye make-up made her eyes pop plus she added Lorraine Schwartz and OFIRA jewelry to complete her look.

    shoes- too chunky and too much hair on that beautiful face of hers. interesting make up, though.i think we’ll be seeing more of this on celebrities

  • andy

    She screams “try-hard”

  • Carmen

    I’m so sick of that hairstyle on Kelly. I think she should do everyone a favor and chop it into an adorable bob. I agree, this dress is fantastic and wish to see more of it without her extensions in the way. Those shoes are dreadfull! I would’ve preferred black sandals instead.

  • Hannah

    She does actually wear interesting clothes, so I began to think that perhaps I should be just a tad excited for her upcoming looks on the x factor (in spite of the saddening recent photo of Dannii), but then I saw the shoes. I get that she goes for itneresting shoes, like her old besties the rodarte ones with the bolt heels, but these are plain hideous. Lindsay Lohan was a fan so I thought that may have been enough to stop them.

  • moja31

    a major improvement from her x-factor looks, she looks comfortable for once. heinous shoes though.

  • doc

    I don’t like this fabric choice and the tailoring of the dress, It looks like a brocade which I don’t think works in clothes at all. There were some shots where she looked 3-4 months pregnant. And once again, someone has convinced a seemingly rational female celebrity to don heinously hideous shoes.

  • Parvati

    I don’t mind the hair, but these shoes!!! She’s wearing a very sexy dress and it could have been a great look if it hadn’t been ruined by those wedges…

    • Parvati

      *slingbacks… I always thought these shoes were wedges, even 2 years ago, when LeToya Kuckett wore them.

  • Paige

    the hair is totally killing the vibe for me here, if she’s gone for a slicked back ponytail or updo with some attitude this could’ve been a really hot look but it’s just kind of ‘meh’ as it is.

  • Alina

    Beyonce looks lovely.

  • Nat39

    The blue eye make-up is horrid.

  • Oh! The dress is amazing but the shoes ruin the look for me!

  • AW

    Kelly is prime example of having an athletic body that’s not too thin, the dress is great on her. Obviously the shoes are absurd but THAT WIG! is the most offensive part and she insists on wearing it consistently.


    • mol

      I agree 100%, just to add my intense dislike of the eye makeup as well.

  • dee

    Shoes take this down quite a few notches.

  • The dress looks nice on her. I don’t understand the shoes.

  • anna

    It’s a nice look for Kelly!
    But the shoe choice was not the best1
