Kelly Rowland Covers 'Runway' Magazine

Kelly Rowland graces the Fall 2011 cover of Runway Magazine. Striking a strong pose, Kelly looks absolutely beautiful! Miss Rowland is known for empowering girls & women alike.  She encourages & promotes them to "Be strong. Love yourself. Don't be afraid to take chances." It's so inspiring to me when celebrities use their voice to promote such positive messages to the world.

In the magazine Kelly speaks about her own insecurities with her complexion and her own insecurities.

“There’s so much peer pressure growing up, I had an identity crisis. I went to a predominantly white school and I was the only black girl. I can remember thinking: ‘I don’t want to be as dark as I am – I want to be a little fairer.’ I didn’t want to be me…Tina sat me in front of the mirror and said: ‘Girl, look at how pretty you are.’ She made me feel comfortable in my own skin."

Watch the video below, for a behind the scenes look of Kelly's shoot with celebrity photographer Derek Blanks for Runway Magazine.
