Kelly Rowland for FashIzBlack Magazine NovDec 2013 - BellaNaija - November 2013 (9)

Presenting the November 2013 issue for International Paris-based fashion magazine FashIzBlack with a fabulous covergirl. Can you guess who? We’ll give you a hint; she used top be a member of Destiny’s Child, her long sexy legs can give Usain Bolt a run for his money and her last single Dirty Laundry caused more than a stir.

Yes! It’s Ms. Kelly Rowland.

Giving us some major pouting, the Grammy Award winning American singer posed for the fashion magazine’s cover and a fashion editorial wearing fabulous pieces. From Alexander McQueen & Valentino through to Giuseppe Zanotti, Kelly rocked them all.

For her feature FashIzBlack interviewed Miss Kelly on music, fashion, beauty, well-being and lifestyle. Read an excerpt from the interview below.

On Music

“Talk a good game”, your 4th album came out a few months ago. As someone who has been into various types of music (pop, dance…), how do you perceive the state of R&B today, as a musical genre? And as a whole, how do you feel about female artists in the industry? What changed (or didn’t) since you started back in the 90s with Destiny’s Child?

I believe R&B is consistently changing and really making its way back to mainstream radio… I feel it’s important for female artists to find their uniqueness in the industry and stand out. What has changed? The Internet! Social media and the way music or information is spread is just amazing.

Who are the top 3 upcoming artists you’d like the world to know about?
Oh, I’d definitely say Adrian Marcel, Sevyn Streeter and Luke James !

On Fashion

Do you have any upcoming project related to fashion (like releasing a clothing line for example)?
I can’t say much for now, but I’m working on some collaborations!

Who is the designer you’d like to model for during fashion week and why?
Balmain! Olivier Rousteing is one of my favorite designers and I absolutely love his work, especially the way he pays attention to details while designing.

On Beauty & Well-Being

What else (aside boxing) could be a good way to work on one’s self-confidence?
I try to surround myself with genuine and positive people… People that breed positivity and aren’t afraid to lift each other up. I think who you surround yourself with really effects you and your personal confidence.

Do you feel there are stereotypes in terms of Beauty in the show business, particularly for black women?
Of course, there are; I chose not to pay it any attention. If we, as women, build up each other, we change those stereotypes. We can have an impact on these things; but it first changes with us..

On Lifestyle

Is Kelly Rowland ever going to perform again in Africa anytime soon? If yes, which country would you love to take your tour to, and why?
Yes, absolutely! It’s one of the places I’m happiest. Most centered, as well… I just went to South Africa not too long ago actually, to perform.

Amazing. Still on the “Trips” topic, we know you’ve traveled around the world, but if you had to pick ONE unforgettable moment you had in Paris what would it be?
I’ve had many great moments in Paris… But when I think of Paris it’s such a magical romantic place, and I’m still waiting for my magical romantic unforgettable moment… When I have that, I’ll get back to you (laughs)

Kelly’s fashion editorial is absolutely stunning. The fabulous fashion editorial is available in their next issue, on newsstands in France now (in two weeks in the USA, UK & all their stockists around the globe).

Check it out.

    I find her more appealing and sexy than Beyonce of the world! There is this alluring beauty about her that will wanna make you stare for long(The legs,the skin tone etc)..Beyonce is pretty and that is all..My opinion anyway and it doesn’t really count

    Kelly is rarely covered up. Just look at her last 3 red carpet moments. Something about her always strikes me as unhappy.

    White lace dress…. For a moment I thought it was Tiwa savage

    Wow! kelly and tiwa do have a striking semblance in dt pretty white lace dress.

  12. Lecker

    I think its the other way round. Tiwa is Kelly wannabe, and I think she is doing a good job of it.

  13. Lecker

    November 14, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    Now I see where Tiwa gets her inspiration from. I love them both.

  14. Aderonke

    Wow! This is BY FAR my favourite @fashizblack spread of all times! Kelly is breathtaking in this shoot and I love the interview too because I feel like I can get to know her more personally and without the shadow of Beyonce or Destiny’s Child hovering over her. Great job and thank you for sharing!
