STAR Summer Doll Artistes Edition: Krysie | Entertainment
June 21, 2021
It’s easy to dismiss the reveal of a new look on social media as another display of vanity. But when this doll updates her page, there’s a kind of self-expression that goes beyond an obvious show of style and fashion.
Krysie reveals personal growth with her chameleonic looks and a career path over the past year that is as layered as the lyrics of her latest single, First Night, might suggest. One day she’s in a comfy T-shirt and sweat pants combo with ‘I don’t care’ hair, and in a matter of days, she morphs into a form-fitted dress wearing waist-length deep wave weave. Those who know the fast-rising independent artiste from her Nothing Proud days may remember that turquoise and black neck-length mohawk from the music video representing the rebel in her, and so they may not be able to see the resemblance when Krysie brings out her inner-bubbly Barbie blonde. Such personal style reflects changes in her music and she’s about to make a splash into summer with ‘top class’ style and win hearts with her smile.
What’s your dream summer vacation? “I’m in Hawaii on the long stretch of white sand of Kaanapali Beach with the sweetest coconut wearing the sexiest swimsuit accessorised with one of those big hats that cover my face. I won’t have no phones or any technology in my space to interrupt the calming sounds of the waves hitting the shore.”
Heels or strappy sandals: “Heels… even nice high wedges for the beach. Right now, my closet is lacking sandals.”
Who are three of your fashion icons? “Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj are two females who I think are very fashionable and have paved a way as entrepreneurs and inspiration for other businesses in the industry. I think I have that same creative and workaholic mentality. I also find Chris Brown’s style intriguing, so I’d name him as the male icon I look to for ideas.”
My favourite colour lipstick is: “I like the nude shades in lipstick. I already have full, pink lips so I prefer wearing them with that natural look or with lip gloss.”
