Most girls associate themselves with celebrities to get money and fame (Ben Affleck’s nanny, are you reading this?) but some would rather use their five minutes of fame to help make their dreams come true. Breaking into the celebrity scene as Chris Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran could have been no different than girls who bask in their newfound attention, but she instead used it for leverage.
Karrueche was recently spotted at the Empire Collection launch at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York.
Known as an aspiring model and actress, it looks like things are finally going right for Karrueche, who decided to keep her head down for most part of her break up with Chris Brown. Karrueche uploaded a heartfelt message of gratitude on her Instagram with a (semi-weird) picture of her.
The 27-year-old wore a white top with an adorable colorful belt-wrapped skirt, which she paired with powder blue Schutz “Juliana” heels.

Just want to take a moment to thank God for blessing me in so many ways imaginable. I just left a meeting and almost cried when I got in the car. So many awesome things are happening.. Dreams are coming true! I once thought I would never amount to anything and now here I am living my life! Sorry I’m getting emo but I’m in such a good place and had to share. Energy is soooooo real ❤️
