Kelly Rowland In Fendi - 6th Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Awards

Kelly Rowland posed for photos at the 6th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday.

The singer, whose album ‘Talk a Good Game’ drops later the year, wore a frock from Fendi Resort 2013 with t-strap heels and a gold, chain link bracelet.

The navy and yellow dress is on-trend with spring’s color-blocking look, but unfortunately the dramatic sleeve seen in the lookbook is much more deflated in real wear on Kelly. Plus, the down hairstyle masks any potential sleeve volume from view.

Don’t get me wrong, Kelly looks good and very appropriate for the luncheon event, but I’m underwhelmed by look because I know the sassy, risk-taking fashion sense she has. Remember her peekaboo Grammy gown and this magical mirrored number? That’s the edge I’m used to seeing Kelly in, and I wish she hadn’t strayed so far.

Bianca Balti and Abigail Spencer have also worn this two-hued dress. Who do you think it suits best?
