Kelly Rowland In Balmain – X Factor US Finale

Kelly Rowland In Balmain - X Factor Finale

Kelly Rowland sported a sassy ombre do for ‘The X Factor’ Season Finale held at CBS Television City on Thursday evening (December 19) in Los Angeles, California.

The newly-engaged singer wore a Balmain black gown featuring an embellished leather bodice with a suede thigh-high slit skirt styled with the same Anthony Vaccarello ‘Abisko’ sandals we saw on Jennifer Lawrence during her ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ promo tour.

I wanted to like this look as it screams diva; however, a part of me feels like this look is rather dated.

This is the kind of dress Mariah Carey would wear as a performance piece. This isn’t a compliment considering Mariah’s style has been stuck in the 90s for quite some time.

    She is beautiful, has a killer bod, and a great gig where she gets to dress up in amazing dresses and gowns. Yet, it’s like she has no taste. I always want to like her looks, because I like her, but as this very look proves, she just doesn’t ‘get it’.

    Tacky and unflattering on her, love the sandals however.

    She uploaded her intagram profile what she wore last night.
    She wore michael kors, other balmain dresses, tom ford, christopher kane, anthony vacarello during the shows.

    It’s not a cheap list. She was like a cameleon. I liked her watching from week to week her transfromation.
