Kelly Rowland Pays Homage To Iconic Beauties And It's Everything

Reason 1,934,653 why she's one of the most flawless humans ever.

The goddess who is Kelly Rowland paid homage to four iconic women in an editorial for Mane Addicts.

Celebrity hairstylist Kim Kimble and makeup artist Rokael Lizama joined forces to transform the star into some of the world's most celebrated beauties.

Diana Ross

Kelly went full on big hair with long, voluminous waves.

For inspiration, Kim Kimble tells Mane Addicts she used a Diana Ross album cover where the diva opted for "a loose, messy, lion’s mane type of hair" instead of her signature ringlets.

Get the look: Kelly wanted drama for this look, so Rokael Lizama says they did a smokey eye. She used an intense black liner, Smolder Eye Kohl, by MAC.


Kelly's second inspiration was Sade. Her hair was slicked back into a waist-long twist, and she nailed it with a bright lip.

Kimble says the pulled back look is an easy one to achieve, and recommends her K2 Beauty Hair Jelly to give the hair a sleek and polished finish.

Get the look: To create the makeup look, Rokael tells Mane Addicts that Sade leans towards lipsticks with blends of orange and red, "so I used a shade that I know works well for a lot of different people called Lady Danger by MAC."

Bianca Jagger

Kelly looks like a touch of class in her Bianca Jagger-inspired look.

Kimble created a faux bob by setting Rowland's hair on large rollers and then brushing out the curl to make it fuller. She gathered and tucked the hair in the back to make it shoulder-length.

Get the look: Rokael stained her lips using MAC Spice Lip Pencil and applying a chapstick on top.

Farida Khelfa Goude

To channel Farida, Kimble gave Kelly long, natural curls and defined them even more with a small curling iron. To create a fringe illusion, Mane Addicts says that the hair was pinned and tucked around her face.

Get the look: Rokael says she applied a gel eyeliner from Frankie Rose all over her lids and smoothed it with a blending brush. She used Lady Danger again for Kelly's lips.

Bravo, Kelly! You. Did. That!
