Over the weekend, Mary J. Blige celebrated her 49th birthday. Unsurprisingly, she did it in style.
The “Real Love” songstress rocked a large, light brown fedora hat with a long coat of the same design. The coat fell down to her ankles and had a hood with fur going around the outside of it. Underneath, Blige sported a black crop top and paired it with light blue jeans. The “No More Drama” chart-topper owned long, straight blond hair and rectangular gold earrings. She donned a pair of Timberland boots and proved that her swag is undeniable.
The singer shared two photos of herself to her Instagram for the occasion and looked nothing short of incredible.
In the first, Blige was photographed on the side of a street. She placed one hand by her jean pocket and looked directly at the camera lens with a fierce glance. She put her other hand in her coat pocket and appeared to have some wind in her hair.
In the second, the “All That I Can Say” hitmaker walked in the middle of the road. Blige had one leg in front of the other and looked at the camera with a strong expression. Behind her were a zebra crossing and a one-way street.
For her caption, she wished herself a happy birthday. She told her 4.3 million followers that she was feeling great and that she plans to stay focused, hungry, and achieve new levels and new goals in 2020. Blige commented on how great her life is currently and how she’s blessed to see another year.
She also let her fans know that the coat and hat was custom-made by Misa Hylton and MCM.
