Short hair, don't care! Kelly Rowland is the latest celebrity to make the cut, ditching her long locks in favor of a short bob, which she debuted during New York Fashion Week.

"I just wanted something new," she explained as to why she chopped her hair. "I just got so bored with my hair and wanted a change!"

The Destiny's Child singer and The X Factor judge also isn't afraid to change up her style and try new trends. "I think anything deserves a try. I haven't really found or seen anything that makes me feel like, 'Oh, maybe I shouldn't wear that,'" she says of her fearless fashion MO. "I'm very moody when it comes to style. However I feel is how I dress."

But she does have one style regret: when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction on stage. "It was probably one of the worst moments of my life," Kelly recalls of the cringe-worthy incident. "My top blew up and my breasts were exposed. I hated that."

As for what celebrities' styles she covets, she names her BFF Beyoncé's sister Solange as inspiration. "Solange Knowles' style is all her own. I [also] love Jennifer Lopez's style," she shares.

Despite the fact that she's constantly wearing full makeup for her performances and television appearances, Kelly keeps it low key during her downtime. "I don't really like to wear makeup when I don't have to be in front of the camera. I think now with the paparazzi, you are always on camera but on those off days, I like to just be natural and let the skin breathe," she says.

Kelly Rowland's favorite beauty products

A good cleansing and moisturizing regimen is the trick to getting a great complexion like hers. "You should never go to sleep with makeup on," Kelly says. "Drink a lot of water... I feel like it keeps us young. A beauty product I use a lot would have to be my face cream that I love. Mine is actually three due to the weather. I'll use Natura Bisse, Oil of Olay and Pond's. I remember watching my grandmother and my mother and great aunt use Pond's and Oil of Olay."

When it comes to her wedding day with Tim Witherspoon, who she got engaged to in December, Kelly will be showing off her fabulous figure, which she maintains with regular Zumba classes. "I just want to look very hot for my sweetheart," the 33-year-old shares. "He likes to be able to see my figure, so whatever I have on, I just want to be able to walk down the aisle and have something that accentuates my body."
