Kelly Rowland meets Diana Ross
You can’t talk black beauty without dropping Diana’s name!

Her big, textured hair was a trademark that stood the test of time and made her stand out among her peers. So for her look, hairstylist – Kim decided to use of one Diana’s iconic covers that had her hair in a loose curly texture with long waves.

For her makeup, Rokael and Kelly both agreed they should bring the drama. They centered the look on her eyes, leaving the rest of her face a beautiful nude.

Kelly Rowland meets Sade
For her imitation of Sade, Kim gave Kelly a sleek, tight and pulled back look. Using some extensions mixed with Kelly’s hair, they created a long twisted ponytail that gave a polished yet elegant look for the shoot.

For her makeup, they went for very classic Sade with her iconic red lip with MAC‘s Lady Danger.

For the third iconic look, they went big! The fashion icon was portrayed with Kelly rocking long sculpted curls which served as the anchor for her look.

Kim created a fringe with Kelly’s hair pinned by the sides while Rokael smudged black liner around Kelly’s eyes with a green tint and some of MAC’s Lady Danger on her lips.

      How dare you undermine someone’s career/ successes as confidently as you have!!!! Who the hell are you and what gives you the right to do so? Before you undermine someone’s life let us take a peak into yours so we can equally scrutinise!!!

      they barely have any relevance or recognition in their own neighborhood, not to mention society at large, neither are they known in this virtual space for anything other than spewing pure bile and sheer hatred YET they have the effrontery to call Kelly Rowland “washed up has-been” . @A Real Nigerian, you are hardly Nigerian at all, and you carry a very strong complex in your mind, not to mention the HUGE chip on your shoulder. “Who” are you? Where “are” you? or where “have you been”?

      Stop putting people down/undermining their capabilities, its a very unattractive trait for any human being. and if you can’t help it, see a shrink. geez!

      Lol She’s an Icon … She’s the same girl who’s music you play in your busted up raggedy ass car. The same woman who bought dance music to the US , and plus you’re on the site looking at an article about Kelly talking smack your undercover fan honey it’s okay.
