Kaya Jones of The Pussycat Dolls in L.A. at STYLE Fashion Week

Kaya Jones, formerly of The Pussycat Dolls and now solo recording artist, came out to STYLE Fashion Week for the debut of Alexis Monsanto’s 2013 spring/summer collection

She rocked the red carpet in a classy but sassy black dress paired with a bold red lipstick and gave us some important tips for accentuating style without breaking the bank.

She says, “you could get a dress from Forever 21 and throw on a bitchin’ leather jacket and you’re good to go. You don’t have to spend ridiculous amounts on your wardrobe; you can just piece it.” Kaya also recommends Macy’s as an alternative to mowing through your savings in one shopping trip. The one product Kaya says she can’t live without is mascara. According to Kaya, mascara is the perfect way to add a little pop to your eyes in any situation
