Get The Look: Kelly Rowland’s MTV Video Music Awards Mani

Get The Look Kelly Rowland’s MTV Video Music Awards Mani

It’s obvious to see that Kelly Rowland is having fun with her pregnancy when she took to the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. I love how her artsy nails complemented her braided halo and sparkling Kaufmanfranco gown.

Celebrity manicurist, Sarah Bland-Barbuto, who has worked with Kelly on several occasions, created a design for Kelly called the half-moon mani.

A small area of the nail around the cuticle is lined in one color and it resembles the shape of a half moon. The glitter that is used is from Sarah’s own line Artiglio. The glitter is cosmetic grade glitter that is specifically made for use in manicures.

Sarah says to start with the gold polish first. She used Nail Labo Presto Gel #155 on Kelly.

Follow by applying the nude Nail Labo Presto Gel #63 with a round brush. The gel polish prevents chips and will help prolong the life your manicure.

There was a mini Destiny’s Child reunion at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards held at The Forum on Sunday (August 24) in Inglewood, California, as Kelly Rowland joined Beyonce Knowles and Michelle Williams on the red carpet.

Showcasing her baby bump in an elegant blush-coloured Kaufmanfranco sequined halter gown, the singer also opted for statement earrings donning Lorraine Schwartz’ brown and white diamond interlocking earrings along with brown diamond bracelets and a brown diamond ring.

With her hair wrapped up into a braided do, she complete her look with a soft pink lip colour.

What an extensive line up we will have for Best Maternity 2014.

Kelly Rowland In Cushnie et Ochs & Fausto Puglisi – 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Kelly Rowland - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Kelly Rowland looked fierce on the red carpet of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas tonight (May 18).

The singer took the crop top trend to new heights in a daring ensemble featuring a Cushnie et Ochs bra top and skirt from Fausto Puglisi.

There are very few bodies that could pull off such a revealing look so seamlessly, but Kelly’s is certainly one of them. Not a fashion malfunction in sight–only major gym inspiration for the rest of us.

Manolo Blahnik pumps, rows and rows of Ofira and Lorraine Schwartz gold bangles, a blue smokey eye and nude lips round out the sexy look.

So what do you think–are you a fan of Kelly’s daring look, or is too much on display?

Kelly Rowland In Juan Carlos Obando – 2014 amfAR New York Gala

Kelly Rowland In Juan Carlos Obando - 2014 amfAR New York Gala

Kelly Rowland joined Gretchen Mol on the red carpet for the 2014 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 5) in New York City.

The singer wore a Juan Carlos Obando Resort 2014 ivory-and-black printed long-sleeved dress emphasised with a tie neckline and rise-and-fall hemline.

I’m pleasantly surprised by this look as galas can prompt some to go over the top, a charge we have levied at Kelly before.

This look is effortlessly chic without being underdressed, styled with gold accessories including metallic pumps and a selection of jewels.

You may remember that Julia Roberts wore a dress by the same designer in the same print to the Critics’ Choice Awards.

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.

Who Wore Emilio Pucci Better…Kelly Rowland or Tess Daly?

Who Wore Emilio Pucci Better Kelly Rowland or Tess Daly

Back in January, Kelly Rowland wore an Emilio Pucci Fall 2012 dress featuring sheer slash inserts and a sexy side slit to the BET Honors.

Without a clutch or jewelry, her new curly do was the only accessory.

British TV presenter Tess Daly wore the same dress to the Pride of Britain Awards in October showcasing her wavy golden locks.

I wasn’t fond of Tess’ oversized clutch, but Kelly was in desperate need of some accessories. Tess’ gold-metallic pumps win the look for me.
