How Keke Palmer Styles Bella Thorne and Saweetie
Whether she is hosting the VMAs, creating new music or making big-screen appearances, Keke Palmer’s confident and charismatic spirit has all eyes on her. Her chameleon-like talent allows her to thrive and succeed with all she sets her mind to.
Her style is undeniably effortless – she can look just as good in jeans as she can in a floor-length gown. Her latest video for “Bottoms Up 2.0” is no exception to this rule, as she looks absolutely flawless in a sunny yellow column gown designed by Kuwaiti couturier Yousef Al-Jasmi.
It’s not the first time she’s donned a design by an Arab designer. In fact, she sported an orange vintage suit and shorts in the same design at this year’s MTV VMA awards, with a pop of color in her hair.
The 28-year-old singer also rocked a sleek hairstyle for her latest video shoot, which she styled herself. The star opted for a wavy hairdo that was parted down the middle and styled with fluffy locs. Her edgy look was topped off with a white crop top, diamond hoop earrings and matching necklace, a pair of clear sunglasses and a glossy lip.
She even added a few pops of red to her ensemble. The sultry beauty paired the asymmetrical dress with a pair of red suede platform sandals, giving her look an even more edgy appeal.
Her stylist is the US-Egyptian fashion designer Mikiel Benyamin, who’s previously worked with Bella Thorne and Saweetie on their videos. The Egyptian-born creative, who has a client list of many other celebrities, is known for putting together memorable looks that go beyond the standard.
His style has been a major part of her success, as she often wears pieces from his collections in her music videos. She even wore one of his dresses on her first tour, which was filmed in Egypt.
As a result, the actress and singer has become a household name and is credited with helping to shape young black women’s careers. She has starred on Scream Queens, released her own debut album and launched her own record label, Big Boss Entertainment.
But that doesn’t mean she’s not still a work in progress. The “Yellow Lights” singer recently told PEOPLE that she’s still working to figure out how to handle her emotions. She’s also learning how to be more empathetic.
She’s also experimenting with a more comedic side of her career, which she showcased during the 2020 MTV VMAs. She hosted the show and performed a song from her new EP, Virgo Tendencies.
Despite the challenges she’s faced over the years, Palmer has been able to keep moving forward and is proud of her successes. She’s no stranger to hard work and dedication, and she’s stayed grounded and focused through thick and thin, as demonstrated in her latest video for “Bottoms Up.”
It’s a reminder that she’s never been afraid to push the envelope and try something new, which is what’s helped her grow into the confident woman she is today. She’s a role model for women of all ages and has the power to inspire everyone around her to keep going – even when it seems like they’re getting nowhere.
