Change Clothes! Style Chameleons We Adore…
The red carpets of Hollywood are always full of beautiful women who always look their best but there are the standouts. There are style mavens who know how to look good in a couture gown and switch it up at their next appearance. These 9 beauties are style chameleons who can rock any look. Check them out!
One of the knocks against Rihanna is that she’s had a new look with each of her albums. She’s been brunette, blonde, a redhead, was a fashinonista and then traded that in for dirty jeans to compliment a grunge phase and she buzzed off the side of her head. These days, the Bajan singer has darkened long hair and a casual presentation. She’s never content with just one look and has instead mastered them all. She’s a designer’s muse.
Will and Jada’s little girl isn’t a teenager yet, but she’s altered her appearance more than those twice her age. The 11 year old has whipped her hair in braids, shaved her head, colored it a few times and even got a tongue ring. She also has her own eccentric style of dress and shoe wear that most kids her age aren’t wearing.
Janet not only helped set the template on how female singers could sexually express themselves through song without being vulgar but her diverse looks have complimented her stage presence. Janet has been the girl next door, a sensuous woman and a poised icon. Her bone structure was made for the pixie cut just as much as it was for flowing long hair. She’s also got a body that can wear almost anything even at her age.
Solo has never been afraid to do her own thing and it’s been one of the defining traits of the younger Knowles. She’s been ahead of the curve with her style selections, often preferring hobo chic but is just as comfortable in a gown. Additionally, she has rocked braids, natural hair and a buzz cut. At the time, her fade was better than most guys.
Kelis is always out there and won’t be put into any neat style box since boundaries don’t exist for her. She was shaving the side of her head, putting piercing in random places and dressing wildly before it became the norm. Kelis just does her without any effort and makes a unique fashion statement every time she steps out.
Jada may be a married mother with kids but those traditional roles haven’t contained her fashion choices. She has the sophistication to walk with her head half shaved and not look as though she’s a try hard. She oozes confidence and her ever changing appearances come off with ease.
There’s never been a red carpet that J Lo couldn’t own. She’s stunned in sequins, mini’s, ball gowns a plunging green Versace dress that set a fashion benchmark. She’s been fearless in her style choices. If anyone deserves bragging rights for continually being a trendsetter, it’s Jenny from the block.
When Monica first burst onto the scene at 15, you could tell that she wasn’t like the other teenage singers. Her pixie cut and demeanor gave her an air of sophistication which made her seem older. As she evolved in her career, so did her style which has included blonde and red hue for her hair; bobs and flowing hair have also been part of her changing looks. She’s got range as a singer and the same agility when it comes to her looks.
Keyshia has tried to remain consistent in her music, but she gets style points for never staying in one look for too long. She is still her even if it her hair is short or long, blonde or black or even stars on the side. She’s still Keysh and that’s not lost through all the changes.
