Kendall Jenner is adamant she has one of the “greatest holiday playlists” ever made.

The model’s mother Kris Jenner is known for her legendary Christmas parties, which are packed full of members of the Kardashian-Jenner family and other celebrities.

But among the top tips that Kendall has learned from her mum about entertaining guests during the holidays is to spend time working on the background music.

“I would say I have one of the greatest holiday playlists of all time,” she commented in a video for Elle.com. “Growing up, my mom was very into R&B, especially Babyface, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder… and Kenny G, Destiny’s Child. So, she really turned me on to all of their Christmas albums. I have the best Christmas albums ever. I could listen to them not during the holidays, that’s how much I love them.”

Kendall went on to share that her family Christmas bash will this year be hosted by her older half-sister Kourtney Kardashian. However, don’t expect the stars to turn up in matching outfits like they did for family photos as children.

“We have so many good holiday memories – I’ll always thank my mother for that because she is so good at all holidays and traditions. But we have so many good photos,” the 24-year-old smiled. “The thing I think of is this amazing family photo of us where every single one of us is in a full plaid Burberry outfit. It’s really good.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Kendall noted that she loves drinking hot chocolate and watching festive films like The Holiday in December. And she can’t think of a better time to experiment with fun beauty looks.

“I love a red lip around the holidays and I think a good eyeliner, and some nice hair,” she added.

Singer Kelly Rowland became a huge fan of her hair thanks to encouragement from soul sister Beyonce’s mum Tina Knowles.

When Destiny’s Child were starting out, Kelly and her cohorts were styled by the Houston based hairdresser, beauty shop owner and fashion designer, who became famous for creating the girls’ costumes from scratch.

Tina crafted looks for the rising band out of her extremely successful hair salon, Headliners, in Texas, and Kelly has fond memories of sitting in a chair there, as the Beyonce and Solange Knowles’ mum took time to praise her style versatility.

“Tina actually gave me a lot of hair confidence,” Kelly recalls to Us Weekly. “And I remember Tina saying, ‘Oh, Kelly can wear anything. She wears long hair, she wears short hair’. You know what I mean? We played with colour (hair dye).

“She just allowed myself and B (Beyonce) and Michelle, just the freedom… We could all do anything we were feeling and she would help support us and shape it into existence. And that was so healthy for me as a kid, for sure.”

Kelly is now supporting other women keen to bring out their fierce selves through hair confidence as the spokeswoman for Dove Hair’s new #myhairmyCrown campaign, which clients to wear their hairstyles proudly, like a queen’s crown.

“I think that it’s celebrating yourself. It’s celebrating your originality,” she says of the marketing scheme. “It’s celebrating your uniqueness. It’s celebrating your creativity. It’s celebrating you and not conforming and just being yourself.

“When you’re able to celebrate your own features and be proud of it, then I just feel like it’s more of an inner self power that we possess.”

Kelly Rowland joins Dove campaign to inspire women to love their hair

Singer Kelly Rowland is helping women love their hair as part of a new Dove campaign.

The former Destiny’s Child star has partnered with bosses at the beauty brand as her new single, Crown, debuts, and the 37 year old admits it’s a perfect tie-in, because she drew on her own hair issues for the song.

She tells People the lyrics “My hair, my crown” promotes “having love for your hair and gaining the confidence to be able to wear it however you please, or to cut it however you please, or have your texture however you please”.

“My earliest memory of hair was actually with my mother. She permed it at five,” Kelly adds. “I remember all my hair fell out when they were rinsing it out and my mom let my cousin, who was in cosmetology school, do it.

“I remember looking at my hair in the sink and thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, why did she want to straighten it?’ My mom didn’t know, but the seeds (of insecurity) started to be planted there.”

As part of the promo, Kelly appears alongside two young women, Tyrielle Davis and Faith Fennidy, who made headlines in the U.S. after they were expelled from school for wearing braids and extensions in their hair.

“I was p**sed, to be honest,” she tells the publication. “It’s enough stuff that young people have to go through, and for you to basically be bullying them, a school to be bullying them and telling them what they should look like or how they should wear their hair, you are out of place. You are not their parents!”

As a mother, she is determined to set an example of self acceptance for her young son, Titan.

“He just gets his hair braided and we tell him how cool he is, how cool the braids are,” she shares. “It’s just this thing where we are our children’s first example. I take that responsibility very seriously.”

Kelly Rowland prefers activewear she can wear to any occasion

Kelly Rowland is adamant her new activewear line can take any woman from “day to night”.The 37-year-old singer has teamed up with sportswear brand Fabletics, which was co-founded by Kate Hudson in 2013, to create a 17-piece dance-inspired capsule colle…

Kelly Rowland is adamant her new activewear line can take any woman from “day to night”.

The 37-year-old singer has teamed up with sportswear brand Fabletics, which was co-founded by Kate Hudson in 2013, to create a 17-piece dance-inspired capsule collection of workout clothing.

And Kelly is thrilled that her range consists of perfect pieces that don’t ever need to be confined to the gym.

“I love the fact that it’s a lifestyle brand and the pieces the creative team and I thought of were to help you go from day to night,” she explained in an interview with WWD. “I have so many days where I’ll start with my workouts and I get a call, ‘Oh, you have a meeting at this time,’ and I know I have something else to do and can’t get back home. I know I just have to have my day run its course and they’re pieces that I can just pop on.”

The collection, which ranges from size XXS to 3X, includes leggings, sports bras, bodysuits, tops, a bomber jacket, as well as a hoodie, and can be purchased in-store and online. Pieces are priced between $24.95 (£19) and $64.95 (£51).

Kelly added that the idea of activewear being worn during everyday life is appropriate for the busy schedules of women today.

“It’s definitely activewear, but I feel like you’re being active all day,” the former Destiny’s Child star considered. “That’s why it’s important to have the designs really showcase that. Being able to take yourself from being so gym-like. There’s this one top that we did, I would put that with a skirt.”

Away from activewear, Kelly, who is mother to four-year-old son Titan, also expressed an interest in designing children’s clothing one day.

“I’m obsessed with kids’ clothes,” she laughed. “My son’s closet is ridiculous.”

R&B star Kelly Rowland is helping fans stay fashionable as they get fit in 2019 by launching her own line of workout gear with Kate Hudson’s Fabletics firm.

The former Destiny’s Child singer was unveiled as the new face of the label on New Year’s Day (01Jan19), when she announced the news of her capsule collection.

“Happy New Year!! I’m SO EXCITED to share my limited edition collection with @Fabletics!” she wrote on Instagram, alongside photos of herself modelling the Fierce two-piece set, consisting of a cropped black top and high-waisted leggings, both featuring mesh patterning.

“#KellyXFabletics was designed to help YOU feel empowered and ready to conquer it ALL!”

The clothing line features a variety of leggings, sports bras, a bodysuit, sweatpants, a sweater, and a bomber jacket, with prices ranging from $24.95 (£20) to $69.95 (£56).

“Kelly Rowland represents the epitome of powerful femininity, which is why we are so proud to be able to collaborate with her!” reads a Fabletics statement posted online.

“This capsule collection was designed to empower women to stand tall and feel strength in their everyday with pieces that are made to move and make big moves in. The whole collection represents her own brand of personal style, complete with athletic silhouettes with an edgy attitude and a touch of sexy. Get ready to channel Kelly and bust a move in your next spin class, on the mat and in life!”

Adds Kelly, “I want women to feel strong when they put this collection on. Like they can conquer the world.”

The Dilemma hitmaker joins Demi Lovato as a spokesmodel for the brand – the pop star launched her first range of athletic wear with Fabletics in May, 2017.

Actress and fitness enthusiast Hudson co-founded the label in 2013.

Beyonce has helped a lot of upcoming designers kickstart their careers insisted the singer’s stylist Ty Hunter.

The superstar is considered one of the best-dressed celebrities in the world, often wearing fashion-forward outfits courtesy of labels like Balmain, Givenchy and Fendi, while also drawing attention to lesser known brands such as Laquan Smith, Natasha Zinko and Zimmermann. And according to her longtime stylist, the Lemonade hitmaker has always been happy to experiment.

“Beyonce’s the type of person who’s not into labels. She’s like, ‘Whatever’s hot, why not?’ That’s what I liked about her,” he smiled in an interview with W magazine. “I was able to help a lot of young designers and start their careers, while working for her, like Michael Costello and Rubin Singer. Whatever she feels comfortable in works. That’s why we were able to help a lot of peoples’ careers—and still do.”

The fashionista is pleased Beyonce got a chance to collaborate with some of the biggest brands in the world, as he admitted the star didn’t always have as much choice in the style stakes while she was in Destiny’s Child with bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Luckily, that changed when the trio released their chart-topping single Independent Women in September 2000.

“When I started, the reason why the girls wore Mrs. Tina so much is because no one would let us pull. It took ‘Independent Woman’ for people to start looking at the group seriously,” he recalled in an interview with W magazine. “There were showrooms that had their favorites like, ‘You can only dress Kelly.’ ‘You can only put clothes on Michelle.’ ‘You can only pull for Beyonce.’ It was like that sometimes. I loved the designers that allowed me to take a chance and show a full story and have their clothes on three beautiful women. But the ones that got it, got it.”

R&B star Kelly Rowland has turned eyewear designer to create a capsule collection for luxury brand Smoke x Mirrors.

The former Destiny’s Child singer has taken her love for stylish sunglasses to the next level by coming up with her own limited edition line, a 10-piece range featuring four different frames.

According to The Glow Up, each piece in the collection is custom made in Japan for exclusive sale at U.S. retailer Barneys New York, and Kelly paid a visit to one of the stores in the Big Apple on Tuesday (23Oct18) to celebrate the launch.

She shared video footage from her shopping trip on her Instagram Story timeline, as she gleefully showed off the frames on display.

“One of my dreams came true today,” she told fans in one clip. “I have a collaboration with Smoke x Mirrors for my sunglasses. Oh my God, I’m so excited!”

The Dilemma hitmaker also posted shots of herself posing beside a display case promoting the new project, titled Smoke x Mirrors + Kelly Rowland.

She has since also modelled one of the new pairs of sunglasses on her Instagram profile page.

“So excited to share my new @smokexmirrorsny eyewear with you guys!” she wrote in the accompanying caption. “They can be found exclusively at @barneysny! Check them out on barneys.com, let me know what you think!”

The collection features stainless steel frames in a variety of colours, including black, gold, and rose gold, but the styles don’t come cheap – each pair retails for $345 (£270).

Kelly Rowland ditches gruelling workout regime after relocating

Kelly Rowland is enjoying a more relaxed approach to health and wellbeing after moving Down Under.

The Destiny’s Child star relocated to Sydney, Australia earlier this year (18) to film her second season with The Voice Australia and was recently crowned queen of the coaches after proteges Sam Perry and Bella Paige took first and second place respectively.

The singer-turned-coach might be revelling in the feeling of success, but she’s also celebrating a scaled-back fitness routine, something she attests to the infectious slow pace of her surroundings and spending more time with her husband Tim Weatherspoon and their three-year-old son Titan.

“Since I’ve been here I have not worked out once,” Kelly, 37, laughed in an interview with Vogue Australia.

It’s a stark contrast to the hectic life she led in Los Angeles before, where she admitted she had racked up a gruelling weekly regime of boxing, Pilates, weights and running.

“I like to run track as if I were an Olympian,” she joked. “I went from doing all of the above before I left (L.A.) to doing nothing.”

While she confessed she did “beat herself up a little bit” for temporarily abandoned exercise, it hasn’t fazed the Dilemma hitmaker too much.

Instead, she has invested in eating healthily – after watching videos on the destruction of the ocean she revealed she has stopped eating fish “for now” and dines on salads and, interestingly, tumblers of crushed ice.

“If I am one less person eating fish, then that’s one more fish in the ocean,” she explained. “You know, everyone says one thing at a time, so I’m trying to do my part for Earth.”

Kelly’s also discovered the health benefits of meditation and regularly uses mindfulness app Calm to restore balance in her otherwise busy lifestyle by doing a series of guided exercises.

“It’s awesome,” she gushed. “I do it every other day, first thing in the morning or if I feel like I’m overwhelmed or anxious and I have to bring it all ‘in’, because that means I’m putting too much energy out and not giving myself anything.”

Kelly Rowland disguises blemishes by making them look like moles instead.

The singer is a lover of all things make-up and pays particular attention to her regimented skin care routine. Nevertheless, she still suffers for the occasional breakout, and has created a clever means of hiding lumps and bumps when she’s out and about.

“This is not a real mole. That is not a real mole. Those are not real moles,” the 37-year-old shared, pointing to her face during an interview with Elite Daily. “I cover them (blemishes) up with DUO Glue (an eyelash adhesive, which comes in a variety of colours).”

Though this groundbreaking method always gets the coverage she desires, Kelly went on to warn potential copycats that friends and family may notice when you take the technique too far.

“There was this one time I made them super tiny, and I had, like, little freckles,” she laughed. “Somebody goes, ‘I didn’t know you had freckles.’ I said, ‘I don’t. I’m having a really bad breakout right now, and I just made them, you know, little freckles.'”

The Stole singer is adamant that healthy skin is the most important part of any beauty regime and believes in skin care “above anything.”

“One (favourite product) would definitely be Shani Darden’s Retinol Reform,” Kelly recently explained to U.S. Elle at the launch of Schick’s new Intuition f.a.b. razor – a brand for which Kelly is an ambassador. “Another one would be iS Clinical face wash, because I believe in washing your face. And a sunscreen – iS Clinical has a great sunscreen.”

The former Destiny’s Child star is also a big fan of Jessica Alba’s cosmetics line, Honest Beauty, and likes to use the brand’s Magic Balm around her eyes in the summertime.

Kelly Rowland takes her daily skincare regime very seriously and wears sunscreen every day.

The singer always rocks a flawless complexion and has previously described herself as “a beauty product hoarder” due to her love of cosmetics.

While Kelly enjoys experimenting with hair and make-up, she is adamant that keeping her skin soft and healthy is always her number one priority.

“I believe in skincare above anything,” she explained in an interview with U.S. Elle at the launch of Schick’s new Intuition f.a.b. razor – a brand for which Kelly is an ambassador. “One (favourite product) would definitely be Shani Darden’s Retinol Reform. Another one would be iS Clinical face wash, because I believe in washing your face. And a sunscreen – iS Clinical has a great sunscreen.”

The 37-year-old is also a big fan of Jessica Alba’s cosmetics line, Honest Beauty, and likes to use the brand’s Magic Balm around her eyes in the summertime.

“Pat McGrath has these beautiful colours in her eye palettes. Stunning for summer,” Kelly added. “She just gave me (a palette) through my make-up artist, Sheika Daley. And I’m in love with it.”

The Stole hitmaker had a ball playing with her beauty look during last month’s (Apr18) Coachella festival, where she reunited with former bandmates Beyonce Knowles and Michelle Williams for a surprise Destiny’s Child reunion during Bey’s iconic headline set.

And being part of a two-week event meant that Kelly was able to have double the fun when it came to her style choices.

“(My look) did change week-to-week,” she explained. “The first week, where we had the rhinestone fatigue camo on, that was a smokier look and a little bit more sultry. It was fun. The next week was glow, glow, glow. I told Sheika I really wanted to glow. And she glowed me right on out. I loved it.”
