Together with her stylist Scot Louie, Kehlani has fast become one of the most exciting women to watch on the red carpet.

“Kehlani and I gravitate towards each other because we both love street culture and street fashion," Louie tells Bustle. "However we both like to experiment with different elements of style. Whether that be boho or high glamour, we are willing to go the distance.”

“I can always count on her to have a fun manicure, big gold hoops, and at least one gold necklace," says Louie, adding that "her favorite lately [is] the one with her daughter Adeya’s face on it." Here she wears a denim and leather jacket dress by Kaimin at a pre-Grammys event in January 2020.

"Kehlani can be adventurous, and even when she’s playing it safe with her looks, they’re still so fun,” says Louie, who styled the Bustle cover star in a cream and gold August Getty Atelier trench for the iHeartRadio Music Awards in March 2018.
