Kelly Rowland arrived at Chloé‘s spring 2024 runway show for Paris Fashion Week on Thursday in a mixed media pattern dress in chocolate brown, black and white. She accessorized with the Chloé Penelope shoulder bag in black and classic black booties.
Chloé’s spring 2024 runway show marked the last collection for the brand’s creative director Gabriela Hearst after a three-year stint. The designer honored her South American heritage by inviting members of Brazil’s legendary Mangueira samba school and dressing them for Paris Fashion Week.
“Six months ago when we knew this was going to be my last Chloé show, I thought we need to bring Mangueira, and have a real carnival,” Hearst said to WWD during a preview. “And Paris isn’t going to know what’s hit them. We dressed them in their team colors, fuchsia and green, and they were so happy, they are actually going to use them for one of their competitions.”
Hearst is stepping away from Chloé and has her own namesake luxury label to focus on. The brand is opening a store in Los Angeles, and according to Hearst, their retail sales numbers are also up.
Rowland’s attendance at Chloé’s runway show and Paris Fashion Week comes fresh off the heels of Rowland receiving the Fashion Icon of the Year Award at Harlem’s Fashion Row Awards on Sept. 5. The singer was dressed by her stylist Kollin Carter for the event, and also embraced neutrals for that occasion. She wore a plunging white corset dress with a long black velvet skirt and exaggerated dramatic puff sleeves by Ashi Studio.
