David Becker/Getty Images via ABCKelly Rowland‘s boho-chic style has helped land the singer on Elle‘s 2017 Personal Style Award list, scoring the “New Bohemian Singer” prize.
The Whoa, Baby! author also tells the magazine what in her “early-2000s Destiny’s Child days, one of her first big purchases was a pair of “thigh-high Dolce & Gabbana denim boots.”
She adds, “They made me feel a little more grown-up, a little more sexy. I wore them everywhere: during performances, on tour, on days off. My friend was like, ‘You’re wearing them too much.’ I said, ‘Do you know how much money I paid for these boots? They’re going to walk for themselves!'”
Michael Jackson‘s daughter, actress-model Paris Jackson, also claims a spot on Elle‘s fashion-forward list as this year’s “Rebel With a Cause.”
She names rock stars Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin as her “top three fashion icons.”
“They all wore what felt good on them, period. Which I love. Staying true to yourself is important in every aspect, even down to your clothes,” she says.
