Kelly Rowland has the girls gagged with the stunning, slinky black dress she wore to The Hollywood Reporter Beauty Dinner Oct. 25.

The dress — a Karoline Vitto creation — is a black floor-length and long-sleeved gown with a large, skin-baring cutout on the side that features edgy stainless steel detailing. The Metal Ladder Gown is from Karoline Vitto’s Autumn/Winter ’23 collection. It’s offered in a size-inclusive range and retails for $1,853 on the designer’s website. 

The dress was custom fit to the contours of Rowland’s body thanks to celebrity tailor and fashion designer Baba Jagne. Stylist Kollin Carter — another celeb fav — is who pieced together the singer’s look and all its fashionable details.

The black dress was paired with a matching-colored turban by Matthew Reisman and shoes by Sophia Webster. Rowland’s earrings and hand jewelry were by Loree Rodkin and Yessayan.

The “Motivation” singer’s hair was done by one of her go-to hairstylists — JStayReady, aka Jared Henderson.

MUA Leah Darcy slayed the musician’s soft glam makeup.

Rowland posted pictures of herself in the asymmetrical garment on Instagram Oct. 26.


The mother of two got lots of love from fellow celebs in the comments of her post. The big names couldn’t help but gush over the “Like This” diva’s beauty.
