It's hard to think of a celebrity more brave, more beautiful and more delightfully comfortable in her own skin than Jill Scott.
From the moment her first song dropped -- the unforgettable 'Getting in the Way' -- she set a new standard. Here was a sista who remained classy but wasn't afraid to be sassy. For the most part, Jill has worn her hair in a curly, natural style -- the video for My Love was a notable exception.
This weekend at the NAACP Awards, she made her glorious return to the red carpet -- and to the stage. I personally loved her cornrows paired with a flowing mane of kinky hair. I thought she looked stunning on the red carpet in that sexy, slinky navy Tadashi Shoji dress.
But I gotta admit, I didn't exactly love the look she wore on stage for her performance of 'Hear My Call.' The shiny satin leopard dress wasn't a fashion decision I'd make, but I applaud her for always being true to herself.
What are your thoughts on Jilly from Philly's glorious come back? Are you as psyched for her upcoming tour with Maxwell as I am? And furthermore, what of the mane? Braided front (though they were a bit tight) and Diana Ross-esque back? Is it too much or a perfect fit? Do tell.
