When it comes to fashion, Kelly Rowland has always played by her own rules.
If you remember that super-revealing Georges Chakra gown she wore to the 2013 Grammy Awards, you'll know she likes to have fun with her style. "We dare to be different, right?" she told HuffPost Style.
The 33-year-old mom-to-be is fearless, especially when it comes to maternity style. And as the spokeswoman for Caress, she's teaming up with the beauty brand for an #AmpYourFab photo contest to inspire more women to live everyday more fabulously.
So we hopped on a call with the "Talk a Good Game" singer to find out what it's really like dressing up a blossoming belly and the pregnancy skin issue that has her scared.
Are there any fashion risks you believe more moms should take?
I just encourage them to be more comfortable. The other day, I wore some vintage shirt with Marilyn Monroe on the front. And I remember somebody saying, "Are you sure you want to wear that?" I was like, "Absolutely!" I'm trying to stay comfortable and cool.
What's been the hardest thing about dressing as an expecting mother?
You know those really cute jeans that you were able to fit like a couple of months ago? They don't fit the same. I've been able to go on a nice little shopping spree, and at A Pea in the Pod I found the cutest stuff!
What's the one beauty product you can't leave home without?
Right now since I'm carrying the baby, it's coconut oil. Everyone keeps tell me, "Beware of stretch marks." And they're scaring me a bit. I'm just being really conscious of that.
You've always had a gorgeous complexion, and now it's even more luminous. Do you use any unconventional beauty treatments?
Between coconut oil, shea butter and cocoa butter, I'm pretty much looking like a piece of fried chicken right now. But I really have my grandma to thank. She gave me and all the women in my family such a lovely gift.
