They’ve pursued separate career paths to differing success since their Destiny’s Child heyday. But on Sunday Michelle Williams – dubbed the ‘third wheel’ in the RnB band – managed to keep up with her bandmate Kelly Rowland, in the wardrobe department at least. The singers, both 32, wore strikingly similar skinny denim trousers and sky-high heels, with Michelle gaining some extra height points over Kelly in a particularly vertiginous pair of grey platforms.
The duo were spotted arriving together for an afternoon party at Bagatelle restaurant in West Hollywood, California. Kelly and Michelle looked in great shape, with their skintight jeans showing off their sculpted stems and toned derrieres. Switching up the way they dressed up their denim, the R&B singers chose different pieces to accompany their bottoms. Michelle paired her trousers with a loose-fitted black blouse and studded zip-up leather jacket.
She added a chained, multicoloured statement necklace that blended nicely with her top, spicing up her otherwise simple outfit.
Kelly, meanwhile, chose an eye-catching vibrant yellow sweater, layered over a white tee. Sticking to a spring palette, she sported nude pointed-toe pumps and added some glam with a large green ring on her right hand.
The temperature had certainly dropped from where their weekends were previously spent. ‘Enjoying this lovely Spring weather so much! Check out my look from yesterday’s “Women Who Rock” event,’ Kelly tweeted with a Pinterest link to a photo of her ensemble she wore at the Hard Rock Hotel during Coachella music festival.
In the snap Kelly is captured in a sheer white halter dress, the same green ring, gold chain bracelets, delicate gold necklaces and a pair of oversized sunglasses. As the Motivation songstress soaked up the desert rays, Michelle basked under the Arizona sun.
Since collaborating in the famed girls group Destiny’s Child – which reunited for their first time on stage since 2007 during the Super Bowl halftime show in February and simultaneously released a new album called Love Songs – Kelly has become the second most notable member, following Beyonce. She has gone on to record more R&B songs in the spotlight and acted in films such as Think Like A Man, as Michelle has maintained a lower profile.
Michelle has strayed away from her R&B roots, but found her niche in the theater world, appearing in Broadway plays such as Aida, while sticking largely to gospel and Christian pop tunes.
