Monica ‘New Life’: Singer’s Fashion Evolution Moves From Silly to Sophisticated — Photos

Gino DePinto

Monica sang of heartbreak and heartache at 15 years old, when her debut LP Miss Thang debuted, and moved on to brighter pastures with 2003′s After the Storm. Just like her music, her style is saturated with attitude — both good and bad. Her hair is always coiffed to perfection and her makeup flawless, but there are times when her wardrobe choices left fans asking, “What was she thinking?” Maybe it was just one of ‘dem days. But not every style selection has been a fashion faux pas. The 31-year-old R&B songstress hit red carpets aplenty and caught attention for her sleek silhouettes during her storied career. Six albums in and on to her seventh, New Life, out April 10 — listen to the album in full here — Monica appears to finally have it all under control. Travel back in time with The BoomBox as we revisit silly getups — galoshes included — and picture-perfect moments.
