If this is Leona Lewis‘ new shtick, we’re not digging it. The singer sported a not-quite-skin-tone midriff topped with a giant yellow bow over her breasts at Essence‘s 2nd Annual Black Women In Music Reception in LA last night. We’d assume she was trying to compete with the wacky fashion sense of pompadoured honoree Janelle Monae, but she showed up at the premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never wearing a similar top shaped like a pair of lips the day before. We wouldn’t be shocked if Lewis’ many handlers decided she needed an edgier, more “fun” fashion reputation to compete with Katy Perry and Rihanna’s edgy outfits, but her tops seem just silly, if not wildly inappropriate—boob lips to the kid-filled premiere of a Justin Bieber movie?
Get a closer look at her top in the gallery below. Are you feeling this new look for Leona? We can only imagine what she might have in mind for the Grammys.
