Kelis’ Latest: Cute or Crazy?June 11th, 2010
The verdict’s out: you decide!
Kelis has always had an eclectic style but lately she’s really been pushing the envelope: the gray hair and rat tail, furs that had the PETA’s panties in a bunch, this (Kelis…blindfold me!). Which is why I was surprised to see that she arrived at ELLE magazine’s first “Women in Music” event at New York City’s Highline Ballroom a bit tamed out.
She’s doing red hair now and punched up her grey dress and sparkly jacket with chunky drop earrings and multi colored bangles. She looked even more Bossy without the cover up.
But it wouldn’t be Kelis if she didn’t take it a step further. The singer took to the stage to perform a remix of “Milkshake” mashed up with Madonna’s “Holiday”, “Trick Me” and her new song “Acapella” from her upcoming Flesh Tone album in this…interesting outfit.
Checkers, flowers and that hat?
Back in May Kelis told MTV she dresses “honestly” and gave her style philosophy:
“The way that someone dresses is kind of your calling card or resume in a sense without speaking. When I walk into a room no matter what it is I’m wearing, whatever mood I woke up in that day, people are going to judge you off of what they first see. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing it’s a fact. It is what it is. I can’t say that I dress to provoke any kind of thought. I don’t really care what people think. I don’t ever have any regrets about anything I do, at the time it feels right.”
That’s what I’m talking about. Whatever you wear own it!
Are you feeling Kelis’ fearless style?
