Kelly Roland put fashion over comfort when she tried to wear shoes too small for her.

Kelly Rowland loved her friend's shoes so much that she tried to squeeze her "big Cinderella sister foot" in them, even though they didn't fit.

The former Destiny's Child singer has become a style icon in her own right since finding fame with the girl group in 1990, regularly attending fashion shows and events. Her most recent outing was at Beautycon's annual festival in Los Angeles last weekend (09Jul16), where she dazzled in an ivory silk lace top and skirt combo with matching strappy heels. And Kelly took the opportunity to speak about her passion for quality footwear.

"I remember being in love with a friend of mine’s shoes. Her foot was three sizes smaller than mine and I still stuffed my big Cinderella sister foot in her shoe," she laughed to Footwear News, referring to the classic fairytale story which sees Cinderella fall in love with her Prince Charming after being reunited with her glass slipper. "It was uncomfortable, (but) it looked cute!"

While at the bash she spoke about her upcoming make-up line, which she worked on with cosmetics expert Sheika Daley. The range was designed especially for women with darker skin, as Kelly told reporters in March (16) that "chocolate girls are covered".

"We’re coming out with a make-up line called Face," she added to Footwear News. "It started off with lashes, but it’s starting to grow bigger than that. We can’t wait to supply women out there with our line - with a Face."

Other stars at the Beautycon event included Christina Milian, Ashley Tisdale and actress Kelli Berglund, who dazzled in a pair of towering gold Giuseppe Zanotti stilettos. The 20-year-old's career is on the rise with movie roles in films like the upcoming One Night, which means she's been able to treat herself a little on the fashion front.

"I never splurge on things because I’m the most frugal person ever," she explained of her shoes. "I wear the heck out of both of them."
