Ever since Keri Hilson discovered box braids, she’s been busy re-working them in ways that stray from care-free to classy – and, for her spell at the Living Legends Foundation’s 18th Awards Celebration, the star put an elegant twist on the trendy ‘do, landing her a top spot on our list of looks we’ve loved, to be named our Style Star of the Week.
According to Keri, during an interview with Cocofab.com, the decision to don the braids was a practical one, as she commented;
“I’m just recording and that’s why I got them. The last thing I want to do when I’m recording is wake up and do my hair.”
We at SPICE love the look on the 31-year-old singer and girlfriend to NBA baller, Serge Ibaka, as well as how she complimented the ‘do with an overly sexy, curve hugging, two-toned gown, which she was spied flaunting on the event’s red carpet.
Keeping an element of fun with her look, Ms Hilson also rocked a bright pink pout and green nails – a bit of a contrast to her textured, floor-length gown that looked great from every angle.
The star was also wise to keep her accessories to a minimum, donning just a simple pair of diamond studs, with her brilliant box braids wrapped in a low pony.
But what do you think? Was Keri’s a look worthy of being named our SPICE Style Star? Will you be rocking her braided low pony? Let us know via the comments box or on Twitter via @SPICETVAFRICA.
