Individual Style Character Spotlight: Mercedes Jones (Glee)

Introducing Mercedes Jones -- fictional character from the FOX musical comedy-drama series Glee played by actress Amber Riley.

Mercedes Jones is an active member of the Glee Club and diva-in-training who doesn't take kindly to singing backup. Despite her no nonsense in your face demeanor, Mercedes is a great friend.  She's full-figured and fierce.  Friends, I'm digging this character's personal style. As you know I am an advocate for showcasing individualism when it comes to fashion.  Mercedes is SHARP -- never sloppy.  Her clothes, hair, and makeup: always on point. love it! [LLIS]
