Kelly Khumalo. A name. A voice. An icon. Whoever still denies this probably doesn't live in South Africa.

Kelly Khumalo’s life hasn’t been a fairytale, though, as many of us have read and watched for over a decade. But being the true queen that she is, she is not known for backing down or cowering in a corner. Her controversial life eventually started to negatively effect her career regardless of how hard she has worked.

Fast forward a few years and Kelly's back and better than ever! With her new book and her latest album, Unleashed, she is giving her fans everything they want and more!

Along with her personal growth, what else has seen a huge change for the better? Her style! Here are a few staples you'll need to emulate her style:

Casual Flex

Like many artists, Kelly can't be a diva 24/7. She has businesses to look over, children to take care of and errands to run like the rest of us mere mortals. How does she look her best on a busy day? A few subtle embellishments like beads in her braids or the very subtle Louis Vuitton tote bag.

Lace Lover

We're getting the idea that Kelly is a girl's girl at heart. She loves getting dolled up when she can. Kelly also seems to just LOVE lace, specifically when paired with some chiffon. Lace cut outs, lace dresses, even lace accessories.

Stage Presence

Like any performer, Kelly tends to turn it up a few notches when it's time to hit the stage. She goes big on hair, make up and sequins. She loves the sequins actually. You can see her influences are the great RnB Divas before her.

Gown Girl


One thing we know about Kelly is when it comes to formal wear, the good sis loves herself a ballgown. She has literally shut down multiple red carpets with her most dramatic choices taking up too much room!
