Kelly Rowland Goes Makeup-Free As One Of People’s “Most Beautiful”; Halle And Kerry Make The Cut Too

April 24, 2013  |  

How can you not like Kelly Rowland? She’s just so charming and humble, right?

Well, in a behind-the-scenes video of her photoshoot, the singer showed off that humble side when she was picked as one of People magazine’s “Most Beautiful” individuals in the world and asked to get undressed (makeup wise) for the magazine:

“The first thing that popped in my head when I was asked to be a part of People magazine with no makeup was, “Oh My Gosh. Oh My God, I’m honored. Oh My God, what’s going to happen? [laughs] But I’m feeling very comfortable with my skin and very comfortable to share it with you guys.”

Dressed down in a sweater, a bra, and some light jewelry, Kells showcases her flawless face for the cameras. But like most women, there is a little something something about said face that she’s not always a fan of:

“What I don’t love about my face that gets covered when I wear makeup…is my bags [under my eyes] when I’m really, really tired. But I love that makeup does the trick. [laughs]”

But the stunning singer definitely is comfortable in her skin, something that wasn’t so easy for her to be as a young girl and that she talked about with But with time (and the help of Tina Knowles), she learned to embrace her looks.

“You just embrace it. You embrace everything that you are as a woman, even your flaws too. And those things that you want to fix too and you work at making them better.”

Ain’t that the truth.
Aside from Rowland, as of now we know that Halle Berry, who was once named the “Most Beautiful Woman” in the world by the magazine, was picked, as well as Scandal star Kerry Washington (see their pics below). And yes, Gwyneth Paltrow was picked as “Most Beautiful Woman” for 2013. I don’t get it, but I’m not going to hate on it either. But to see their picks, go over to, where you can also check out that behind-the-scenes interview with Kelly Rowland. Yay for black beauties!
