Style Icon: Lauryn Hill

I remember reading a review of "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" when the album first came out, and the reviewer was praising it and saying he hoped it wasn't like Carole King's "Tapestry" where the artist is one and done, and I was like "Why are you even writing that? Why are you putting it in the universe?" And then it came true. Boo. (Rumor has it she's working on new material. I believe in this rumor.)

Lauryn Hill -- great musician with great hair and an awesome ability to accessorize.

 She looked rad at all the awards shows -- very bohemian, very cool, wearing those signature bangles like it was no big thing.

She was beautiful and super glamorous, but also a bit of a tomboy. I'm so impressed with women who can pull that combo off.

I became a fan (like so so many other people) when she was with The Fugees. I remember singing "Killing Me Softly" all the time during high school, and my mother really hating the beat behind it. She liked the classic Roberta Flack version. Me? I like the classic '90s Fugees version the best.
