Kelly Rowland Graces the Big Apple

Strolling through New York City yesterday afternoon, Kelly Rowland stopped for lunch with a friend at Italian eatery Da Silvano, a hot spot tucked away in the West Village and frequented by fellow chanteuse Rihanna.

Rocking face-shrouding shades, a baggy blue sweater and black boots covering the bottom of her pencil leg jeans, Kelly sipped a Coke and munched on pasta, pausing to take a phone call mid-meal.

The “Commander” singer, who taped her performance for Walmart Soundcheck the previous day, is currently prepping the release of her third solo album, due in stores November 9.
