The R & B singer not only knows how to move a crowd with her words, but she is also a known fashion maverick, designing her own line of accessories and taking on animal rights activists PETA over her love of furs. Her creative, cutting-edge and often flamboyant style has been an inspiration across the globe and even landed her on E!’s Fashion Police earlier this month.

Last night’s ensemble had her glistening from head to toe, with a large gold crown drawing attention down to her nose ring, chunky necklace, gold bangle bracelets, glitter body dust and dazzling pumps for the performance. Shortly after midnight, Kelis made her way across the Tryst red carpet, with a glittering champagne cocktail dress dripping in jewels making her stand out for the upcoming performance.

She took the stage with an explosive entrance and, with microphone in hand, Kelis spit out numerous of her club stoppers while working fluidly own the stage just after 1 am. On her second song, she actually jumped on the drums for the performance, quite a feat in the mini-dress, but the songstress managed to rock out while the dance floor pulsed in response. Tryst’s incredible architecture played host to one of the most magnificent backdrops with the 90-foot cascading waterfall blazing her name on the rocks as she serenaded from the stage in front of the club’s signature lagoon.

Kelis’ career went mainstream in the US with the release of “Milkshake” landing in the top three of Billboard’s Hot 100 and number one on Hot Dance Club Play. She soon after followed that popular single with the multi-platinum hit “Bossy” off her 2006 released album “Kelis Was Here.” In 2010 she moved forward with releasing her fifth studio album, where she worked with various XS and Tryst resident DJs including David Guetta and Diplo as well as will.i.am who frequently takes the decks. That same year, Kelis collaborated on the club anthem “Bounce” by Wynn resident Calvin Harris.
