The Look: Colour Rock



Today on ‘The Look’, we are featuring a guest from the recent Inspire Africa Benefit Concert. This look was all about black with bright splashes of colour. A fitted black top with a gathered full skirt bottom decorated with purple, gold and red diamond-shaped blocks and finished with a tulle hem. Her bone-straight jet black hair, generously lined eyes and python skin clutch give her the rock star edge while her colourful multistrand necklace and simple black pumps are more girl next door. This Rihannaesque outfit was bang-on trend!

    why do people think this very short chlidlike dress looks good….my 5yrs old niece would struggle to fit in it….bella am going to have call you out on this one…it’s not “Rihannaesque bang-on trend” but rather makes her look like she’s been shopping in the kids corner(which by the way rihanna has stopped doing for red capet events…) of were ever she got the outfit from…

    In terms of footwear, the female behind her in the orange stiletto/sandals looks better. I wish we had a better look. Her skin looks great, wld have tried a shorter hairstyle maybe a bob. Didn’t have to fit the hair so very back. She looks good, no doubt. Just few adjustments that will make her look, wow.

    Chei! You guys are haters. For real? I’m not saying the chick is a hundred percent “It”. But she rocked that dress the best. She knew what she was doing. I like her style, and believe it or not, she was on that red carpet not us.

    The outfit is nice but she ruined it. I’m interested in the orange girl behind her.

    Reading some of these comments, it’s like you people host shows on style network and write for Vogue. I’m sure you guys are too “fierce” and are runway ready 24/7.

    This girl has nice legs, and I think her dress choice highlights one of her better assets. I’m not a fan of her flat hair and i think she’d look much better with a hint of a smile,

    im just curious! what exactly is d difference btwn “the look” & “my style”??
    is the “look” only going to focus on red carpet styles?? they seem like similar concepts 2 me.
