Brandy's Style Secrets for a Single Mom
Between a new record deal with RCA, a starring role on 90210 and single parenthood, Brandy has a lot on her plate. Since she doesn't always have time to plan out her every style move, she counts on the help of her stylist, Ashley Sean Thomas, and the power of jewelry. And when all else fails, a pair of towering Christian Louboutin heels always does the trick. Brandy says,
My personal sense of style is sort of simple, I'm a jeans and T-shirt girl. There's nothing much to my style, personally, except when you step out on the scene where there's red carpet and try to get a little bit glamorous. I love a lot of jewelry, I love bracelets and earrings and accessories. I love really high heels. I love Louboutin heels, I think they make you feel like you're a model.
During celebrity photographer Derek Blank's Alter-Ego photo shoot, Brandy had the fortune of meeting stylist Ashley Shaun Thomas. Thanks to their shared vision, Brandy has never felt more confident in her sense of style. She says,
I'm really coming into my own working with this new stylist that I was lucky to work with on a photoshoot. He really glams things up for me when we get ready to do something on television and he knows I love jewelry and heels–we just try to make it my own thing. He just has no fear and we really get along very well. We know what we want to do in terms of fashion and we agree with everything–which is weird.
Although Brandy has the fortune of working with a stylist for special events, on her down time she still has to juggle looking good with being a single parent and holding down a career. Brandy shared her quick tips for moms on-the-go, saying,
A heel can make a T-shirt and a jean look like a million dollars. Just throw a heel on, throw some accessories on, do a light face makeup foundation and a little powder, a little mascara and a little lip and you're good!
