Since the days of Destiny, we've been waiting for Kelly Rowland to get her due. This year, Kelly's been everywhere, and it seems she's finally burst out of her shell. This year we've seen a new confidence in Ms. Kelly that tells us she's a woman who's found her own.

In a recent interview, Kelly Rowland discussed how she came to embrace herself.

You know what? I had great women in my life to help me overcome that. I remember I went through a period where I didn't embrace my 'chocolatiness.' I don't know if that's a word, but I didn't embrace my chocolate lifestyle. Just being a chocolate, lovely brown-skin girl and being proud of that.

"I remember Tina Knowles, Bey's mom and I, I remember being out in the sun and I was trying to shield myself from the sun and she said, 'Are you crazy?' She said 'You are absolutely gorgeous,' and she just told me how beautiful I was and how rare chocolate is and how gorgeous the skin is, all of this stuff. And I was just like 'Yeah!' Like a light went off. So between her and my mother and then me sitting out in the sun a little more, just to be a little more chocolate. You just embrace it. You embrace everything that you are as a woman, even your flaws too."

We certainly wouldn't describe Kelly's deep skin-tone as a flaw, but it's lovely to see a woman walking in her fullness. That confidence has spilled over onto the red carpet. Take a look at her best dresses of the year so far.
