Jill Herzig: Have You Figured Out the Style Thing Yet?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
I was a late bloomer, style-wise. This is quite a confession coming from a woman who makes her living editing a fashion and beauty magazine. I'm only willing to put it out there because I wish I'd woken up earlier to the importance of having a confident look. And maybe reading this will help some other woman get there faster. I was the girl who, on her wedding day, neglected to get a manicure. Full disclosure: I also forgot to get the proper underthings and had to go bra-less under my mom's white dress. I didn't wear mascara until my mid-thirties and am still ambivalent about foundation. Turns out, none of that mattered, but do you know what did? Not buying the right clothes for job interviews. Wearing schlubby maternity duds borrowed from a friend while I worked right up to my due date (who cares what a pregnant woman looks like? was my thinking). Waking up on big-meeting mornings and finding I had nothing big-meeting-ish to wear. Do I believe that you should follow every t ...

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Betty Kelly
    FIFTIES
  • 1995
    Age 50
    In 1995, Betty Kelly was inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a Vandella alongside Martha and Lois Reeves, Annette Beard, Rosalind Ashford, and Sandra Tilley.
    More Details Hide Details In recent years, Betty Kelly has helped to organize annual music festivals in California (where she now resides), most notably the late-summer event known as Sunset Junction.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1967
    Age 22
    By 1967, Kelly was kicked out of the group after being late to several performances and was quickly replaced by Martha's younger sister Lois Reeves with the group's name changed to Martha Reeves and the Vandellas.
    More Details Hide Details Little is known about Betty Kelly's life after the Vandellas, though it's said she rejoined the Velvelettes occasionally during reunion performances. Kelly is said to have fully retired from music after she became partially deaf in one ear.
  • 1965
    Age 20
    Kelly was not part of the group when the band had a hit with "Needle in a Haystack", which became a hit in 1965.
    More Details Hide Details A year before, Kelly was recruited by Motown president Berry Gordy to replace departed Martha and the Vandellas member Annette Beard as a member of the group led by Martha Reeves and featuring Rosalind Ashford. Betty Kelly joined what became the most famed lineup of the Vandellas, coming in quickly to record the single "Live Wire", which was similar to earlier Vandellas singles such as "(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave" and "Quicksand". The group found bigger success with what became signature songs including "Dancing in the Street", "I'm Ready for Love", "Nowhere to Run" and "Jimmy Mack". The lineup of Reeves, Ashford and Kelly helped the group becoming international stars gaining popularity from performances from The Ed Sullivan Show, Shindig! and American Bandstand. Kelly was often mistaken for being an original member of the group despite the fact that Beard had sung on the group's earlier singles, often lip-synched by Kelly when the group performed on TV. Kelly's vocals contrasted from original member Beard's. During the group's later years, Kelly often had special lead singing spots during the group's performances alongside Reeves, which led to infighting between the duo instigated during performances on stage.
