Brandy’s 5 Edgiest Looks

by Clutch


When Brandy reemerged on the music scene with her new album “Two Eleven,” the first thing style and beauty enthusiasts noticed was her hair. The singer was famous for box braids during the “I Wanna Be Down” era but had revamped her look, choosing curly afros, blunt bangs and yes, sometimes braids as her hairstyles of choice.

What many didn’t notice, at first, is that Brandy’s style got an overhaul as well. The “Put It Down” singer, who once had a girl-next-door approach to fashion, was taking bold risks with style.

Brandy has fully embraced a decidedly edgier aesthetic in the last year. She goes for looks that are eye-catching and memorable like dresses with futuristic prints and ankle-cuff sandals with bold detailing.

Here are a few of the edgy outfits that made a lasting impression:

The 40th Anniversary American Music Awards in LA

Brandy turned heads at the American Music Awards in LA in an asymmetrical black and gold glitter dress. The pleats and draping made for a funky take on the Grecian trend and her Barbara Bui “Bengale” embroidered ankle boots added a glamorous touch.


The “Put It Down” singer took the peplum trend to new heights with a structured vest with a theatrical flared hem. She paired the vest with a glitter mini skirt and sky-high peeptoe heels.


The future Mrs. Price went for the bold in towering Giuseppe Zanotti heelless platforms while out and about in New York City. Paired with high-waisted leather shorts, the shoes made her legs look even longer than usual.


The BET’s “The Game” actress wowed on the red carpet at the VH1 Divas taping in a one shoulder Esteban Cortazar dress with cut-outs and pleating about the hem. She finished her look with structured ankle-cuff sandals.


Brandy’s latest look, a printed dress by Mary Katrantzou, continues her edgy streak. Christian Louboutin sandals up the glamour factor.

  • 2naturho

    yessssssss Brandy!! Her stylist is doing amazing things for her!!!

  • CeeCee

    Omg how was Brandy able to walk in those Giuseppe Zanotti heelless platforms? Heels past three inches will have me face down on the pavement; I am far too clumsy.

  • Echi

    Hmm, even with the pics above, Brandy has never struck me as edgy. She’s always been the sweet-as-apple-pie type girl in terms of looks. Perhaps, these outfits would be edgier if she considered some daring hairstyles or makeup.
