      I concur. There’s something about her that just screams “hood and cheap”. Perhaps the bold hair cut isn’t suitable for her “strong” facial features. She needs to try something (hair…makeup..) to soften up her features. On the other hand, this is the best i have seen her thus far. From the neck down she looks lovely(love that dress). Not a total betty, but a vast improvement.
