We’ve all looked at an old photo of ourselves, at the ensemble we had on in the picture, and thought to ourselves, “Oooh, child, that was tacky!” It happens to the best of us, including MadameNoire staff, who’ve fallen victim to gauchos and kitten heels at one time or another. It’s all a part of growing up and pinpointing your personal style.
For 25-year-old actress and singer Keke Palmer, she just happened to have that moment publicly. She put a hilarious spin on looking back at a less than flattering outfit choice. She posted a photo of herself wearing the outfit below and had enough of a sense of humor to be able to make fun of herself. And not just any fun. Sis roasted herself in only the way that she could for a look that was doing way too much:
“CHILLEEEEEE it’s time for me to go in on myself because whatttt in the Mortal Kombat, female Goro is going ON!!” she wrote. “The outfit I’m not COMPLETELY upset with (SOMEBODY SAID IM WEARING FIVE OUTFITS AT ONCE HAHAHAHAHAHA), at this time I was super over wigs and my hair hadn’t grown back yet. I’ve always been different, and loved that about myself but chieffff this wasn’t it. Somebody said you’re going to Comicon and I took it to HEART. I turned into a CHARACTER okay hahahahahahahahaha omg.”
The best part about her commentary though, was when she made sure that after she made fun of her past style choice, she lauded certain things about herself as well.
“So funny how what we like changes so drastically in so little time hahaha the red carpet never lets you forget,” she said. “I still love myself tho, abs was on fleek and confidence always on 100000000!”
Palmer’s style has definitely been one of a kind for some time, specifically over the last couple of years where she’s experimented with her hair and a wide variety of fabrics and materials. In good fun, since she’s giving us a rundown on previous style decisions, maybe she can offer an explanation for the looks on the next few pages?
Speaking of multiple outfits in one, this definitely falls under that category, Keke.
This is what you get when chaps meet the classic Madonna cone bra, pics of Leonardo DiCaprio and patent leather.
Keke’s facial expression even says she might have some questions about this one.
If you were ever thinking of pairing women’s briefs with thigh-high sneaker boots, this might be a visual warning to keep digging in the closet for something else to wear.
This is one of those looks where you have to choose: Will it be sequin fringe or a sheer velvet skirt? Because it can’t be both at once.
I could see Keke in the top at the beach, but on the streets of New York, and with this skirt? Not so much.
The almost scuba-like pink sheen of the high-neck part of this dress doesn’t seem like the perfect pairing for the embellished black strapless part.
This one isn’t bad! However, it’s a lot to be worn at once — specifically the snakeskin shoes with the multicolored jacket.
Again, the haircut, the top and the pants aren’t bad on their own. However, all together it makes for a look that probably has quite the backstory. We’d like to hear it!
