Solange Knowles In Dries Van Noten – 2011 Met Gala

Solange Knowles is usually in her big sister’s shadow, but tonight she was the one who stood out at the 2011 Met Gala.

Solange has more misses than hits, but she hits a high note wearing a Dries Van Noten Fall 2011 gown.

The black, white and green silk gown with geometric beading was teamed with plenty of attitude and a big ‘fro.

    So glad that I am not the only one that thinks so

    I honestly don’t understand why she’s there and I think the hair overwhelms the beauty of the dress

      Danielle: I totally agree! What is the reason to WHY she is there at all

    I actually quite like it, I think it’s a beautiful dress. She might not have pulled it off in the best manner, but she doesn’t look that bad and she looks TEN times better than her hot mess of a sister at the same gala!
    The hair would have been better suited pulled back so that all focus would have been on this amazing dress.

    This is one of those looks that you’ll either LOVE or HATE. There’s no in-between. With that said, I. HATE. IT. That dress is wearing her, and it clearly should be the other way around.

    Not crazy about the hair.

  6. Alina May 3, 2011 at 17:38 #

    The hair and make-up are really bad.

    total miss for me

    I keep scrolling back up to see if I can find a reason to like this dress…. so far I’m unsuccessful. Poor Solange she tries *so* hard! Sucks being in big sissy’s shadow. I wish she’d try to get her own geniune identity. One week she’s in a hobo look with her natural little fro, and now we are trying for glam in a big dramatic hair. Which shall we be, sweetie?

    I loved th egown, much moreso than Beyonce’s complete eyesore of a look, but she kind of ruins it. I wish she had gone not so psycho with theeyes, a sleek pony or bun with the hair, less witht heearrings and clame rwith the makeup. The dress is such an interesting choice though, so I’ll giver her major kudos for that.

    This is a miss for me. The hair & makeup distract from the dress, which is fantastic.

  11. Lee Ann May 3, 2011 at 10:33 #

    Love it ! Although she wears it in a style that is so not Dries-but it works.

    I love Dreies Van Noten so I’m always happy to see it on red carpet especially when it looks so damn good. I love this print, I think it’s the best I’ve seen her look ever.

  13. Lils May 3, 2011 at 09:39 #

    sorry but no. The hips are way too emphasized and that hair looks so messy. It’s a miss

  14. mol May 3, 2011 at 07:04 #

    Too much hair for this complex dress (which I love)…

  15. NooG May 3, 2011 at 05:23 #

    BDOTW contender; I think she looks amazing.

  16. ME May 3, 2011 at 04:43 #

    I actually like this look. The colors are great!

  17. mikeijames May 3, 2011 at 04:23 #

    kudos to solange for standing apart from the pack in that impactful dries van noten number, but i feel like choice of hair style pulls the eye away from that spectucular gown.

    i would have loved a great pulled back ‘fro ponytail with dazzling earrings.

    I surprised myself by liking this dress. I don’t even know if Solange has ever looked good on the red carpet.

  19. robbie May 3, 2011 at 04:06 #

    she looks fantastic from the neck down, but that hair is ridiculous looks like a really bad wig.

    • Molly May 3, 2011 at 09:05 #

      Definitely agree with you there. Think she looks horrendous from the neck up but doesnt she often!! Her hair and makeup were truly shocking!

      • ahot May 3, 2011 at 13:23 #

        true that, but she is in her own world anyway

  20. Luis Santos May 3, 2011 at 03:53 #

    Too much detail on the hips. Another miss…

    • Leti May 3, 2011 at 05:03 #

      I totally agree–all I see are the hips!

      • Emi May 3, 2011 at 06:50 #

        I totally agree with you. Big miss. Also, why is she so important to be invited at such big fashion event?

        • Julie May 3, 2011 at 13:00 #

          Amen. Big. Hot. Mess.

  21. mm May 3, 2011 at 03:47 #

    Solange went in hard! TKO. Love that even the hair has geometric shape

  22. bri May 3, 2011 at 03:45 #

    BDOTW for me, love everything about this look! So different.
