Before artists were parading around in leotards and shaving half the sides of their hair, Kelis was a style icon. The “Jerk Ribs” singer has a boundless creativity and fearless attitude that keeps her style original and interesting. It’s about time the fashion industry caught on, and Grey Ant is leading the pack. The famous sunglasses brand teamed up with the star on a new ad campaign.
Sporting ’60s-inspired teased wigs, nude lipstick, caked eyeliner, Grey Ant glasses and a turtleneck (or her bare shoulders), Kelis is as sultry and confident as she was when she first broke onto the music scene some 16 years ago. She revealed how the collaboration come about to ELLE: “One of my best friends works for Grey Ant, so when she called me, it was basically a no-brainer. You don’t say no to your dearest friend. But I’m so glad I got involved, because when I got to the photo shoot, I saw what they had planned-these incredible wigs, this totally ’60s makeup. It was really cool.” Cool is an understatement.
