Singer Chrisette Michele Rocks Braided Bun at Movie Premiere

Avatar • Jun 27, 2012

Chrisette Michele spiced up her TWA with some braid extensions that she pulled up into a high bun for the New York Premiere of Madea’s Witness Protection. It’s a cute look, and one that fellow natural celeb Solange is known for rocking. Check out the pictures below and let us know what you think of the look! All photos courtesy of Zimbio.com.

Her outfit is so sloppy looking, though.

Thought so too. She seems to be almost spilling out of the top! It goes well with the belt but I don’t think this is the right fit for her.And the destroyed jeans just look awful! She may have been going for a casual carefree look but this is poorly put together.

The bun alone would typically be okay but coupled with this lazy/sloppy outfit, it just makes the whole look seem worse.

chrisette has packed them on. i saw a youtube video of her and she just looked not very good. she looked like a grandmom from waist down.

she’s young, in the spotlight and should be looking her best or better. not skinny but certainly having a more youthful looking body, imo.

i just don’t like seeing overweight bw, esp. when they don’t have to be.

she’s pretty though.

Generally I find it rude to make unsolicited comments about a person’s weight, but I definitely think the unfortunate outfit is the result of a young woman struggling to dress a body she’s uncomfortable with. “Look at my breasts! Ignore the rest!” I’ve been there. (BTW, I’m seeing her with Ledisi & Eric Benet Friday night. Can’t wait!)

I agree she is definitely not looking as good as she has in the past. I hope she is okay and not going thru changes, either way hopefully she will get herself together. She is very pretty and I have seen her look much better, her weight fluctuates but either way she carried it well. This outfit does nothing for her!

I actually think the outfit would look better without the belt, and instead of the lighter washed distressed boyfriend looking jeans, some really dark wash skinny jeans or jeggings. But her face looks pretty and I like the shoes and braids

Chrisette Michele is indeed! That has been covered. I believe her braid bun looks lovely. That has been covered. The outfit choice? Not necessarily the best (albeit the harshness of other comments) that has been spoken of as well. So again, anything else would just be a overplayed repeat.

+ A Gazillion — she is a beautiful girl. Can’t/Won’t judge the outfit. I leave such things to the fashion police. As far as weight goes, no one knows whether she gained weight on purpose of if she is dealing with a personal issues. As long as she is healthy and happy with herself that is enough. She is extremely talented. God bless her.

So weird. I actually read this site all the time for fun hair facts. I thought this was a community that supported me. Funny thing is, I got more love on Media Take-Out about this very same day. The premiere was a blast! Disappointed in you girls. But whatever. Can’t wait to share my next album with the people who know what I’m about.

I’m not sure if this is realllllllllly Chrisette, but if so — I just want to say that you are truly a gifted musician!!! I have introduced your work (p.s. your first album is my favorite) to so many of my friends, and they are hooked. I need to hurry up and get married so that I can dance with my dad to “Your Joy!” LOVE that song and your whole vibe!

But correct me if I’m wrong, aren’t you subject to a bit more scrutiny due to your being in the public eye? So, I would hope that you surround yourself with excellent people — not yes only folk — who would present you with valid advice from fashion to business decisions.

BTW first heard you on Michael Baisden and thought your voice sounded like melted butter. LOl I need some popcorn now.

You are wrong. Extra scrutiny is not a requirement for being in the public eye. A celebrity should expect more scrutiny b/c there are people like YOU in the world who feel obliged to speak whatever negative thought they have into the world. Please understand it is not your duty to be a bitch towards celebrities, simply because they are celebrities. But it would behoove celebrities to have thicker skin b/c there are far too many people like you who are unkind and DEFEND their poor attitude by begging the question with bs responses like “she’s a celebrity and should expect… Read more »

Uh Nik Nak, your language is a bit strong. I’ll choose to respond in a gentle tone. My concern, as expressed in my previous comment, is that Chrisette should not be taken aback by unfavorable comments. What counts ‑I reiterate — is the strong, unbiased support with which she should surround herself. I didn’t make any negative comments, and actually compared her voice to melted butter. Perhaps I should have said honey and that would have seemed less harsh to you. FYI I do not engage in people worship. I think that everyone is worth celebrating and a celbrity in their… Read more »

A lot of Chrisette Michelle’s fans that read and comment on BGLH or are forum members, I’m sure can not wait to hear her next album and continue to support her. This is an open section of the site that naturals visit, though not everyone who comments here is natural, a regular, a fan of the site, a supporter of natural hair, or even female. And of course, everyone has an opinion and their own way of expressing it. I thought the dark chignon and nude MU and flawless skin looked great, I also loved the coral tones (why don’t… Read more »

For kicks and giggles I went to media takeout…they put up the a before picture of you (with a black dress and blond hair) and an after (the one above). But they took it extra and blew-up the one with your boobies popping out with a caption about milk. Ironically, I thought you look better in the first picture because you look classier.…. Full disclaimer, I did not read all of the comments (if you’ve been to media you know why), but I think your boobs popping out were the main focus of many of the men. This is a… Read more »

When I see this picture the 1st thing that came to mind is the “Got Milk” commercial lol.… Her weight is fine, it’s not like she has always been skinny, just a thick sista. Now I like the bun, and plus those edges look beautiful. I’ve seen plenty of women online/youtube that have some jacked up edges but Chrisette looks very pretty with this style.

she is so darn cute. i love the hair; not sure if the boobies spilling out of the top was intentional, but the outfit isn’t as terrible as some of you are making it seem. as for the folks going in on her weight, just stop. she doesn’t have to be a size 00. she’s lovely as she is.

I will say this: Chrisette Michele is an incredibly talented musician, and her is hair is on point. Having said that, the fact of the matter is, the overall outfit does not look well put together. Period. Now, I agree that everyone is entitled to an off day, so I will not say any more about that, but I’m not going to ignore my opinion of the look, simply because I like her music, and she is a beautiful soul in the vast scope of things. If I was looking a hot mess, I’d want someone to say something to… Read more »

I really liked her outfit, guess im in the minority though lol! I guess I personally like when the things look messy and more chill and relaxed but that could just speak to my carefree attitude. Her micros look really nicely done and I love how her make-up is simple yet makes her look stunning. Also me personally, I don’t think her weight is an issue. Until I hear in the news that she is sent to the hospital because of it or she stops in the middle of show cause she can’t go on anymore then she should be… Read more »

All of these comments makes you guys look so ugly, and it isn’t surprising that so many Black women can’t find men.

I agree with you! While I stand by my earlier statement that, that outfit is one of my more least favorite looks on Chrisette, there is NO NEED to figuratively rip the woman apart. People too often confuse “keepin it real” with being unecessarily mean and cruel. There is a way to get your point across without being as such.

It’s a free country I’m ashamed of all the comments that’s not just attacking her outfit but her weight as well. Whose to say you have to be super skinny rocking a natural look. She’s super talented and can look however she wants.People these days are to negative for the wrong reasons and that speaks volumes about their characters.

Some of these comments are so unnecessary. I get that everyone has an opinion, but you don’t need to be an @$$hole about it. I would love for some of you to post pictures of yourself on any given day so we can all judge you and let you know how tore up you look.

Pretty Skin. Beautiful, simple bun. And maybe all too many of us can relate to the challenges of weight gain. She may still be adjusting to fame and this may be a temporary change, but in this moment in time she looks natural and pretty. Eating right is a journey for most of us. If we have mastered it all the better, if we haven’t yet its a decision we can make at any time.

Sure she can stand to lose a few but that’s the case for MANY sisters including myself. I think the problem is how you dress your body. It doesn’t matter if you are thin or thick. It’s how you dress for your body.

Now on to the hair, it is very cute. I’ve not seen much of her but she’s a pretty girl and her hairstyle is nice. Also, not many people can rock a high bun…just sayin’ just like the clothing.

I find it to be very rude and quite disheartening to see so many negative comments about a individual who I am sure many of you do not know personally. This is a free country and you are entitled to your opinions, but if your opinion does not speak life into or about an individual, try keeping the negative ones to yourself. After all there is a mirror some where near you and I am sure that everything that you see in it is not perfect. .…..be it outwardly or inwardly. Judge not lest you will be be judged.
